I have designed my first Dialog box, but when I try to assemble my program I get an error message saying can't open .RES. The assembler continues and the program runs, but without the dialog box. I see that in the examples with MASM32 both .RC & .RES files are present, how do I get both:confused:

Are you using RC.exe (included with MASM32 package) and
compiling your *.RC file ? If not then this is how I compile my
resource files...

RC /r /v myresource.rc

This will output the *.RES file that the linker is looking for.

Good Luck !

Edit -
Forgot to mention that you might need to 'include' resource.h
in your *.RC file.
example
#include "c:\masm32\include\resource.h"
I don't remember where this file came from, if you need it
I will email it to you.

Thanks anon,
I didn't know about RC.EXE, I'll give it a go,
