No problem, just a glitch with some less important libraries. Masm32 will work fine.
See http://www.webalice.it/jj2006/Masm32_Tips_Tricks_and_Traps.htm for a hello world example.

Hi Gabriel,

The list of error at the end of the library build follow from how Win 10 emulated win32. At the moment, just click all of the dialog boxes until it finished, about 20 or so and complete the installation. Once the installation is finished you can go to the MASM32 directory and run "makelibs.bat" which will run the library build again. This time there should be no errors.

There is an updated version with the link in the forum at URL

http://masm32.com/board/index.php?topic=5256.0

It solves the missing ordinal problem by not trying to build an old library that is not supported in Win 10.

That was the old WinSpool lib, indeed mostly superfluous. One little problem remains: HtmlHelp.lib doesn't export some essential stuff. In case you need it, attached my version, as used e.g. in RichMasm's help.

I was a bit put out about .hlp files not working in win7. I also am not really trusting with Microsoft with their "Update" to make ,hlp files work. I am paranoid of them trying to do a win10 update,when I have updates turned off.(I LOVE win7,and do not want to update.)

The winhelp works OK on win7 but there is none for win10. JimG posted a version from 64 bit XP that does work. As far as the attempted update of win7 to win10, there is a tool that gets rid of it.
