win32 assembly programming

win32 assembly programming

win32 assembly programming

(OP)
I am a newbie on win32 assembly programming.  I am using old win32 assembly programms to learn.  I got an error that I would like some explanion on:
The Error is "Syntax Error".
I got it on instructions like the following:
AbortDoc PROCDESC WINAPI  :HDC
BitBlt   PROCDESC WINAPI :HDC  :DWORD  :DWORD
PrintDlg PROCDESC WINAPI  :LPRINTDLG
etc.
I know the error points to the word "PROCDESC" and I am aware that PROCDESC must be an obsolete instruction
Could someone put me on the right road to the correct instruction to use in place of PROCDESC?
Thanks for any help I can get.

RE: win32 assembly programming

Try using 'PROTO' instead of PROCDESC WINAPI.

And no PROCDESC prolly isn't an obsolete instruction, just an instruction prolly unique to a single assembler.  What assembler system are you using, and what assembler is the source code intended for?  'PROTO' is for MASM.  And to call a PROTO'ed function, use Invoke.
