Made the changes you last suggested and the 1st screen still doesn't show.
The messagebox right after the "UpdateWindow" did NOT show.
The messagebox in WM_Create did show. Checking to see why the 1st
messagebox was bypassed. Think it is a sequence of events in windows
problem.

If GoBug doesn't debug 64-bit programs then I never need to run 64-bit
jcl for 64-bit programs. I did this not realizing GoBug was only a 32-bit
debugger.

Yes. WM_CREATE is send from inside CreateWindow(), so this is "the 1st".

debugger.

There are 64-bit debuggers: FDBG (written in FASM, has a GUI - it's advertised as AMD64 debugger, so I'm not 100% sure if it also works for Intel cpus), MS debuggers ( CDB, WinDbg ). Even if the debugger's user interface may be somewhat archaic - you can always code a hard breakpoint ( "int 3") in the assembly source, the debugger will stop and you can examine registers, see contents of variables, single-step, ....

Code: [Select]
   mov   D[wc.lpfnWndProc], OFFSET WndProc

You probably already changed the "D" to a "Q" ( pointers in Win64 are 64-bit ). That's better, but not perfect. It works as long as the address where the image is loaded is within the first 4 GB. The assembler cannot tell if this will be the case - the image base address is usually set by the linker. To make your code running in ALL cases, change it to:

Code: [Select]
   mov rax, OFFSET WndProc
   mov Q[wc.lpfnWndProc], rax

The reason for this weird necessity is a AMD64 peculiarity - it has only very limited support for 64-bit constants.

Code: [Select]
   invoke LoadIcon, NULL,IDI_APPLICATION
   mov   D[wc.hIcon], eax

All handles ( usually struct members beginning with a 'h' ) have been changed to 64-bit in Win64, so you'll have to change the second line to:

Code: [Select]
   mov   Q[wc.hIcon], rax

Thank you Japheth for your suggestions.
Will check them all out.
I saw your post on Jwasm in Ubuntu and didn't
think that Windows APIs would work in Linux.
Very interesting, most over my head, but maybe
when I have time, try to convert one of my programs
so that it will run on some Linux distro.

32-bit program is working.
64-bit program is not working.

WM_Create goes to the end of WM_Create then
Winmain executes to the UpdateWindow and the
screen appears.
WM_PAINT never executes.
Putting CS_HREDRAW/CS_VREDRAW in style has no effect.
Have a messagebox at the beginning of WM_PAINT and
it doesn't execute so I know it's not getting there.
Thanks for any suggestions.

- Why are using movable memory?
- For "mov rdx, [rbx+PRINTER_INFO_4.pPrinterName]", RBX seems to field with a wrong pointer.
- You should always check pointers after allocation (GlobalAlloc,HeapAlloc,...).

The following adaption works for me:

Thanks qWord.
Working on your solution. Later I might have a few
questions. Just wanted to let you know I was not
ignoring your solution.

Program still errors out after painting the 1st screen.
I feel that it is some register change that I can not see in GoAsm.
Have no debugger to help me.
In MASM32 I avoided the stack like the plague. Only used it for
push/pop, pushad\popad. Savregx was much easier to follow.
So I do not really understand what "and rsp,-16 and sub rsp, 4*8"
are doing. I know that GoAsm adds rcx,rdx,r8 and R9 to the stack
but that is as far as I get at the present time in my learning curve.

In L1 what is cmp eax,-1 doing?
I noticed that you put GlobalFree in WM_DESTROY but did not use
GlobalLock in WM_CREATE. Is that OK??
Don't know how to do the fancy scroll goodie that you did.
Thanks for your help qWord

So I do not really understand what "and rsp,-16 and sub rsp, 4*8"
are doing.
Sorry, I did forget to remove these two instructions: They should align the stack to 16 and allocated the shadow space for the first 4 calling parameter (FASTCALL calling convention). This is not needed, because GoAsm's INVOKE directive does this allready.
In L1 what is cmp eax,-1 doing?
If GetMessage() fails, it returns -1.
I noticed that you put GlobalFree in WM_DESTROY but did not use
GlobalLock in WM_CREATE. Is that OK??
1. GlobalLock/Unlock is only needed, if you have an movable memory object - the example works with fixed memory -> GlobalAlloc() returns a pointer instead of a handle. In fact, there is no reason to use movable memory, except that an API requires it (e.g. clip board operation).
2. The freeing is done in WM_DESTROY because the memory is used in WM_PAINT
Don't know how to do the fancy scroll goodie that you did.
Which scroll goodie?
MREAL macros - when you need floating point arithmetic while assembling!

Actually, more like the code at WM_PAINT is always executing... you return that you have processed the message, but you have not called BeginPaint and EndPaint (as qWord did), so the region does not get validated and you get another WM_PAINT request, over and over again...

Also, if you are going to use hMemory and hdc in WM_DESTROY, you will need to switch those variables from LOCAL to your DATA section (they will not be the same as they were while processing WM_CREATE).

Try Pelles C debugger mentioned in the other thread. Instead of MessageBox, you could use something like
INVOKE OutputDebugString, "Got to this point"

Thank you WJR.
The problem has been solved.
I was assuming that the error was prior to WM_PAINT
because my messagebox did NOT execute.
Anyway here is the offending instruction in WM_PAINT:
     FTS  db  0
    cmp B[FTS],0
    je >. blah1
    jmp >>.blah2
It took the branch to blah2 instead of blah1.
This is just info about why I was having all my problems.
Thanks for all your patience

This code is for a 64-bit program.                 
purpose is to convert #s in spn to a string in hpn3
spn #s run like 1,2,3,4,5 etc. no sign involved.
hpn3 numbers convert to #01,#02,#03,#04 etc.
Needless to say it's not working in 64-bit GoAsm.
Almost the same code works in MASM32 and 32-bit GoAsm.

BufAdd      dd   0
spn         db   1
hpn3        db   "   ",0

       CALL Converter
                       
;other code       
Converter:     
;   edx  spn is the input field
;   ebx  hpn3 is the output field   
       lea ebx,hpn3     
       inc ebx                        ; save 1st byte for # sign
       mov [BufAdd],ebx
       xor edx,edx
       mov dl,B[spn]      ; input
       invoke dwtoa, edx,[BufAdd]    ; output is in hpn3                                   
       cmp B[hpn3+1],030h
        jge >
         mov B[hpn3+1],020h
:       
       mov B[hpn3],023h             ; # sign in front of number       
       inc B[spn]                   ; next input number
       ret
       
; other code       
; DWTOA is from MASM32
dwtoa:
     FRAME dwValue,lpBuffer
     USES esi,edi
   
    ; -------------------------------------------------------------
    ; convert DWORD to ascii string
    ; dwValue is value to be converted
    ; lpBuffer is the address of the receiving buffer
    ; EXAMPLE:
    ; invoke dwtoa,edx,addr buffer
    ;
    ; Uses: eax, ecx, edx.
    ; -------------------------------------------------------------
      mov   eax,[dwValue]
      mov edi,[lpBuffer]

      test eax, eax         ; is the value negative
      jns >
      mov B[edi], '-'         ; store a minus sign
      inc edi
      neg eax              ; and invert the value
:
      mov esi, edi           ; save pointer to first digit
      mov ecx, 10
.convert
      test eax,eax           ; while there is more to convert   
      jz >
      xor edx, edx
      div ecx              ; put next digit in edx
      add dl, '0'           ; convert to ASCII
      mov [edi],dl           ; store it
      inc edi
      jmp <.convert
:   
     mov B[edi], 0          ; terminate the string

.reverse                    ; We now have all the digits,
                            ; but in reverse order.
      cmp esi,edi
      jae >
      dec edi
      mov al,[esi]
      mov ah,[edi]
      mov [edi],al
      mov [esi],ah
      inc esi
      jmp <.reverse
:
    ret   
ENDF

Try changing BufAdd to DQ and in Converter use ecx instead of edx...

Thanks to all that helped.
The 64-bit program is now working except for a few cosmetic
refinements.

I don't understand the reasoning behind using an 8 byte field to
handle a 1 byte field. I thought I was excessive by using a 4 byte
field to handle 1 byte. But this is 64-bit code and what do I know.
