16Bit DOS in 32bit compiler??

16Bit DOS in 32bit compiler??

16Bit DOS in 32bit compiler??

ive just started ASM, from C++ and VB,
and ive got MASM32, which is amazing, but im wondering.. can i use it for making 16bit DOS
programs.. even though its a 32bit win compiler?


RE: 16Bit DOS in 32bit compiler??

Yes, but you need an older version of the microsoft linker.  You can find it on Iczelion's site (http://win32asm.cjb.net/) in the download section.

RE: 16Bit DOS in 32bit compiler??

in TASM which you can download v5 for free it is easy to flip from 16bit to 32bit and visa. at the start of each segment you just need to include use16 or use32.

and dont forget ;) that you need to use the correct code selectors when executing the different segments :)
