I tried installing it again by running the setup. I kept clicking 'ok' when the errors popped up until they disappeared and rest of the setup resumed. Now   I have the software running on my computer. :)
I tried running one of the programs from the tutorials folder but the console window just open and closes in a flash. I'm a beginner lol.

Hi  valium123,

start the program via the command line.

Ok thanks it's working now... So I guess the solution is to just ignore the error messages and keep pressing OK....

Looks like UAC or AV doesn't matter in this case (still got error with both off). It appears the messages can be clicked through without harm? Does MASM32 export DLL functions using ordinals? Or is this message by Windows completely false?

Ready for mainframe assembler programming, but don't have an IBM mainframe laying around -- z390.org

there has been an ordinal pop up that seems inconsequential (201 i think)

Hi splengrand,

Welcome to the forum.

The Masm32 installer does not build any DLLs.
