Can't get NASM to run
« on: October 11, 2008, 04:05:16 PM »
I've downloaded NASM, followed the instructions - on XP all that happens is a console window very briefly flashes - and that's it!  I'm very frustrated, I want to learn assembly but can't get very far without an assembler.  Help please!

You've got an assembler. The assembler won't get very far without a file to assemble! You'll need to tell Nasm, "nasm -f win32 myfile.asm" or some such. Getting a console window in which to type this is more of an XP question than a Nasm question. Right click here and left click there... until you get what you want, I guess.

Steve Dubrovitch's site may help you:

If you really want something you can just click on, look into NaGoA or RadAsm (Google knows where to find 'em.)
