they are re-imaged, it will be working. Meanwhile, students can
follow this alternative way of compiling the projects, which will

Before compiling the project do this:

1) Copy and util.lib(on the disk that    came with the
into the
   BIN directory under masm611(i.e. only if you are    using or
including the files in  your program).

2) copy link.exe from BINR into BIN

3) Move your filename.asm(project file to be     compiled) into the

Now to compile it:

Open up a command shell or a DOS window,
Go to the BIN directory under MASM611(cd progra~1/mams611/bin)

Type in:

1)masm filename.asm(the file you want to compile,    if there are no

2)link filename.obj (hit the enter key 4 times, untill   you come to
