How to use Microsoft Macro Assembler(MASM) with Microsoft Visual Studio 2012

Step by step Instructions with PICTURES!

This is the starting window when you launch Microsoft Visual 2012

Open a new Visual Studio Project as shown.

onclick="javascript: document.getElementById('image1').style.height='100%'; document.getElementById('image1').style.width='100%';" />

 Now open a new C++ Project.

 Right-click your project and configure Build Customizations so that MASM is ticked.

 Next,add your assembly source file.

 If you try to assembly immediately, you'll get something like this.
error 1000: cannot open file:
error MS83721: The command "ml.exe/c/nologo/ZI/Fo"Debug\TEST.obj" /W3?errorReport.prompt....\TEST.asm"exited with code 1

 So you'll have to configure a few options in the preferences section of your project. First is to place this: "c:\Irvine" without the quotes into the location shown below:

 Next problem:
error LNK1221: a subsystem can't be inferred and must be defined

 Next solution: Place "Console (/SUBSYSTEM:CONSOLE)" without quotes as shown:

 Again another problem:
error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol_DumpRegs 0 referenced in functioned_main 0
error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals

 And so again the solution: Place "user32.lib;irvine32.lib;%(AdditionalDependencies)" accordingly:

 Last problem:
error LNK1104: cannot open file "irvine32.lib"

 Last solution: Use "c:\Irvine;%(AdditionalLibraryDirectories)" here:

 And you're done and now able to start doing assembly programming.

I'm sorry if the images are too small. For some reason the images don't enlarge on click except for 1 in the middle. I've still have to work out the kinks so in the mean time go HERE for the enlarged version at SlickPic.
