Hi all,

(Please forgive, it's been a couple of years since I've played with VC++/ASM).  Sure enough, I'm trying to build my VC++ project (using MASM 6.15) with main.asm added to it, and I get the A1017 error (missing source filename).  Now, I've read MS' explanation for the error, but am still not really sure why it's happening:  if I go to the debug, the command line passsed was:

ml.exe /c  /nologo /Fo"Debug\main.obj" /I "c:\Irvine" /W3 /Zi /errorReport:prompt  /Ta.\main.asm

Now, if I remove /Ta.\main.asm (this is a .asm file, so not sure why it's trying to treat it as a non-asm file???), and put the path and name of my main.asm file first in the command line, sure enough, the .obj file is created.  Can someone maybe point me to the error I've made in my VC++ project setup?  I can post whatever configuration information may be needed.  Thanks in advance!
