Hello,

I downloaded a copy of Radasm a 2 or 3 months ago so maybe this issue is already resolved with the newer version.
I opend an existing .exe file with Radasm "Open as hex" then i clicked link or go or one of the build commands (by mistake)
Of course i got an error message but then my executable was gone. I was surprised.... :shock:

Hi

Yes, this is the expected behaviour. Before a link is attempted the executable is deleted.
It has nothing to do with open as hex.

Of course. But in my case i opened a unknown executable from my pc with the editor - i just wanted to look inside.
I used your Radasm as Hex-editor, there was nor Radasm project open or anything - in no case ever is should delete me executable by my mistake. Too me your build-in hexeditor is a dangerous thing to use.

What if i tried to open explorer.exe or any other important windows system file?

Hi

It is still the link command that deleted the exe, NOT the hex editor.
If you expect this to be a problem for you, then you can always
delete section from the masm.ini file.
By doing this you disable all build commands when no project is open.

A new RadASM2207 bugtest is uploaded.
It adds improved exe protection since it checks if the files needed to link are found before deleting the exe.
