images. I am currently fixing this problem on the lab images. Once
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 pcmac.inc and util.lib(on the disk that came with 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)
1)masm filename.asm(the file you want to compile, if there are no
you should get a .obj file)
2)link filename.obj (hit the enter key 4 times, untill you come to
again), now you should have an executable.
3)Now at the prompt type in the name of the
