Hi all,

I would like to thank the following for testing AsmEdit:

BitMan

Sara
Jarko

I've upgraded AsmEdit V4.3 to V4.4.
Below is a list of some of the new features.

1. Visual aid Window Control builder interface via the Tools Menu that
will allow you to build 23 different controls with an option
to switch a control to real mode so you can see how it will
behave in your application.
3. Advanced Toolbar, Button, and Tab Control builders via the Tools Menu
2. Support for Chinese and Korean charecter sets for syntax
highlighting.
3. Italic comments option.
4. Comment highlight blocking e.g.
comment^
xxx
xxxxxx
^
5. Seperate color controls for the Treeview, Listview, and Properties list.
6. The Quick Code now only supports Common controls, plus a couple other items.
7. Made several subtle changes from user input.
8. Made several minor fixes to AsmEdit and it's support programs.

The Resource Editor, Control, Toolbar, Button, and Tab Control builders
can also be run standalone.

You can go to my Web Site to download the complete package (Masm32V1.zip),
or the service package (SerPk03.zip).

Both are quite large because of the Resource editor, Control builder,
and additional programs.

You can use the service package SerPk03 if you have previously
installed the complete package or SerPk02 dated 06-01-2002.

All of the source code is included.

My Web Site is at:
http://asmedit.massmind.org/

Read the 08-31-2002 section of the Readme.txt file before installing.
Don't forget to run the standalone Setup program after installing.

Check on the Bug Fix download packages, they are updated
as soon as I or someone finds a bug and I fix it.

Thanks,

Ewayne

hi,

1. regkey HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AsmEdit V4 is used to store, shouldn't it be HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\AsmEdit V4

2. is set to C:\AsmEdit\ , but when I goto project tree, can't load pgm06 (or any) project. I used filemon and asmedit is trying to load, C:\AsmEdit\Pointers\Pgm06.ptr

3. Show window contents while dragging (control panel, display) keeps switching its self off! (SPI_?)

4. Even though hutch root is set to C:\masm32 , filemon reports this: C:\AsmEdit\Bin\ml \c \coff \Cp Pgm06.asm
when I choose assemble .asm.

5. When "error during process creation" cursor position changes.

Win2K SP3

To X05:
1. regkey HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AsmEdit V4 is used to store, shouldn't it be HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\AsmEdit V4

I placed it there so folks could find it easy.
I have thought about moving it, but then everyone
would lose their settings.
2. is set to C:\AsmEdit\ , but when I goto project tree, can't load pgm06 (or any) project. I used filemon and asmedit is trying to load, C:\AsmEdit\Pointers\Pgm06.ptr

When you click on a Project in the Project tree
does it display the files in the project in the
Listview?
The Projects in the Project tree will point to
the Pointers directory.
3. Show window contents while dragging (control panel, display) keeps switching its self off! (SPI_?)

As soon as you exit AsmEdit it will come back on.
C:\AsmEdit\Bin\ml \c \coff \Cp Pgm06.asm

The above is correct.
5. When "error during process creation" cursor position changes.

Where does it change to?
Where is it suppose to go?
Where would you like it to go?
What error are you getting?

Question:
1. Can you open AsmEdit and then click on Pgm02 in the Treeview.
2. Click on Pgm02.asm in the Listview.
3. Click on Build on the Toolbar.
4. Does the assembly complete?
5. If yes, can you click on Run on the Toolbar to run Pgm02.

The above is correct.


Wrong!
Parameters use a slash ("/") instead of a backslash ("\").

To bazik:

My mistake.

I just wanted to make a statement that it should be:
C:\AsmEdit\Bin\ml /c /coff /Cp Pgm06.asm

and not:
C:\masm32\Bin\ml /c /coff /Cp Pgm06.asm

I did not pay attention to what X05 typed in.

hi,

Folders:
C:\AsmEdit\
C:\masm32\
C:\AsmEdit\Projects\
C:\masm32\INCLUDE\
C:\masm32\
C:\masm32\

(not used setup.exe, takes to long/stresses hdd, 300,000 files..)

FileMon listing on AsmEdit.exe (when I click item project treeview)
no items appear in filename listview with filter on/off

FSCTL_IS_VOLUME_MOUNTED C:\AsmEdit SUCCESS
IRP_MJ_CREATE C:\AsmEdit\Pointers\BmpVu.ptr SUCCESS Attributes: A Options: Open
IRP_MJ_READ C:\AsmEdit\Pointers\BmpVu.ptr SUCCESS Offset: 0 Length: 8000000
IRP_MJ_CLEANUP C:\AsmEdit\Pointers\BmpVu.ptr SUCCESS
FSCTL_IS_VOLUME_MOUNTED C:\AsmEdit SUCCESS
IRP_MJ_CREATE C:\AsmEdit\Pointers\ SUCCESS Attributes: Any Options: Open Directory
IRP_MJ_DIRECTORY_CONTROL C:\AsmEdit\Pointers\ SUCCESS FileBothDirectoryInformation: BmpVu.ptr

Did it attempt to read 8000000 bytes?

(from memory.. i tried to use 4.2 asmedit.. and same thing happened.. "error during process creation" )

thanks

To XO5:

I'm sorry, but things just will not work right if
you do not run the SETUP program!

The main problem is that the paths will not be
correct.

In a future release I will have AsmEdit point to
Hutch's Bin, Lib, and Include directories.

The reason it's the way it is is because I used
to build my own Lib and Include files and had a
lot of my own things in the Bin directory before
I knew about Hutch's masm32 package.

It will be a major change to to switch over, but
I will. I was going to do it with this release,
but I didn't get around to it.

I'm sure there are several areas in the AsmEdit
program and some of it's support programs that
that are wired for the Bin, Lib, and Include
directories in the AsmEdit root directory.

Just for a test, if you have the disk space run
the Setup program and see if things work ok.

If they do and if you want to use AsmEdit I will
work with you in removing the Bin, Lib, and
Include directories from Asmedit root.

I think I found a serious bug in AsmEdit 4.4.

What I did was:
- File -> Open As Hex
- (in file selection menu) Cancel

Then I get an error message saying:
"Could not create or open requested file".
And finally, after I press OK AsmEdit crashes.

I'm using Windows XP here.

To eeprom:

Thanks for the feedback.

I guess that was never tested.

It's all fixed and I will post the fix in the
FixAsm.zip on my web site.

Thanks,
