compiling an old program
« on: July 03, 2017, 05:57:27 AM »
stats: windows 7 pro 64-bit, GoAsm, all updates, latest GoAsm goodies, uefi.

I need to make changes to some old programs.
In the computer there is already a ".asm" and a ".exe" file.
If I compile the program it fails with the following message:
"the system could not make the output file <hhhhh.exe>.
Only solution for me is to delete the existing ".exe" file,
then everything works.
Just curious......

Maybe it's a matter of permissions or perhaps the files are read only. Try to change to another folder, preferably to a different drive where the OS is.

Thank you for replying Caballero.
I purposely keep everything that is not Vindows on a separate drive.
If Vindows fails then my data is safe.
Maybe you are correct and this is causing the problem.
