ToutEnMasm solved this problem by a simple definition in "Full SDK Include Project"

This was my spontaneous reaction, too, but:

@JJ: the windows header files is a house of cards that builds heavily upon the existence (definition) of symbols. If we define all of them, the result will not be the same, since we will include things we are not interested in. In case we do, we accept that all generated inc files will need to be corrected by hand (~2000 files for Win10)

You are now officially a cantankerous old man.

Happy Birthday, Hutch - don't change too much, and don't exaggerate with the whisky :t

I have just come back from a birthday party my neighbours did for me at my local pub which has been a lot of fun. We fed everyone the cake and there is still about half of it left so that is mine. I have not opened all of the presents yet but I know there is a bottle of 15 year old Chivas Regal and a number of home cooked biscuits as everyone knows I am a hopeless cook.

  You are now officially a cantankerous old man.

  Take joy in knowing that if MASM were a martial art, the day after tomorrow,
  you would be grading for your 8th Dan. Oss!

  If your 3D printer can bake, here is the G-code for a chocolate mud-cake.
  G-code is embedded so you will need to use your MASM ninja skills to extract
  and decrypt.

  Have a great day.

@Habran: thanks for the exe. I tested it successfully. I tried other combinations like
Code: [Select]
if 1 and defined(Symbol) and (Symbol eq 1)   ;Symbol not definedand confirmed that it is just a hack for only 1 situation.  ;)

If we want to implement something like an "early return of conditional sentences", when the final logical outcome in a given analysis state is known, without having to check the remaining conditions, more work has to be done. BTW, HLLs do it that way.

Another example with “or” is
Code: [Select]
if 1 or (Symbol eq 1)This expression should be TRUE, even if symbol is not defined.
The other side of the coin are the arguments of JJ & Habran: compatibility. ML does not work that way. It strictly analyse each condition to finally get the result.
I don’t think we will brake existing software, but if we write new one, like the header file translation, ML will not be able to assemble it because of these new features.
ATM, I do not know which way is the best. Maybe someday we'll have to leave ML behind and evolve. Other opinions or ideas?

The invoke style macro writes the first 4 args to shadow space as well as the registers and the rest directly to the correct stack locations. It also supports quoted text. The direct register call macros only write up to the first 4 registers so you can do both and in a very efficient manner.

I read the macro source code and I don't think that invoke writes to the shadow space, it actually appears to work as I expected.

Please note that I installed MASM32 and MASM64 on my current computer in 2017.
