I have tracked down the time lag that JJ mentioned. I downloaded the vs 2017 release candidate enterprise edition (all 15 gig of it) and climbed through an archipelago of directories,

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Enterprise\VC\Tools\MSVC\14.10.24930\bin>

And found the usual 2 different versions of ML64. The version under "hostX64" is larger and probably a 64 bit version. It had some seconds delay before it will build a simple x64 app. The version under "hostX86" is smaller and probably a 32 bit executable but its much faster than the other and builds 64 bit MASM file just fine.

Here is a simple demo of picking the right version of ML64 for Windows 10 64 bit. Clean simple 64 bit MASM code.  :biggrin:
