Hi KetilO
I was working on a flexible installation for the ObjAsm32 package and so far, all works OK. A problem arises with RadAsm, so I want to ask you if it is possible to customize or create a new path, like $O = c:\... This helps to set include paths for the RC compiler. The second question is, if it is possible to read environmental variables to setup such paths like $O=%MyVar% ?

Another approach would work if environmental variables could be interpreted in the compiler call like RC.exe /i %MyVar%
Currently it doesn't work from within the IDE. Using a make file it does...

Hi Biterider

RadASM is capable of setting up it's own private enviroment for each assembler. RC.EXE uses the %include% variable.
Example from masm.ini:

1=path,c:\masm32\bin;C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\Include;C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\Bin;C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98;

Will this solve the problem?

Hi KetilO!
For the first try it works correctly, but I had to use capitals for the INCLUDE environmental variable to be recognized properly by the RC compiler.

Thanks for helping! :)

Hi KetilO
Currently I?m playing with the integrated Dialog resource generator and I found that some bits of the Dialog extended style are locked, in particular

WS_EX_LAYERED equ 80000h

can?t be set?

If I set manually in the rc file, when I change something in the dialog, the setting was overridden. Am I doing something wrong?

A second question is about the INCLUDE environmental variable set by RadASM. It seems that if I have set the variable at OS level, it is ignored by the RC compiler. Only if I set it in the Masm.ini file then it was accepted properly.
This is a problem, since if I have a system that was customized by such type of variables, I can not use them to also customize RadASM. It seems that I have to provide my own Masm.ini file?
Can I do something to overcome this problem?

I will fix the WS_EX_ bug.

I am using RC.EXE version 5.0.1823.1 on WinXP sp2 and have no problems with the include enviroment variable. Uppercase / lowercase does not seem to matter.

If you terminate the variable in masm.ini with a semicolon, RadASM will add it to the variable set by the system.

OK, thanks! :alright:

I guess there is a typo in WhatsNew.txt :
" - Fill block with typed chacter"....

Hi The Svin

Can't say I am able to translate chacter, so most likly it's a typo.

What about F2 bug when it pressed on labels names?
I've loaded (having thought the bug existed only in and here it is. Press F2 on label - RadAsm goes on some endless work (99% processor usage untill you force it to shut down ), not reacting on anything from outside.

Hi The Svin

I am unable to make this happend. Can you give an example that fails?

Posted on 2005-02-17 04:23:59 by KetilO
Stange thing - today it works OK :)
Must be your readiness to help spooked the bug :))

I think if it appears not constantly yet from time to time - then it might somehow relate to memory or some other thing in my system.

I'll let you know when the bug returns (I hope it won't :)
