Easy Code 64 crashes on compile

I've just downloaded the latest version of Easy Code. Whenever I try to assemble a file or a project, the program crashes without warning or message. This is true of all the sample programs using either compile or build. I have set the correct directories for the compiler, linker (VS 2019), include files and libs (Easy Code).

Any suggestions

Many thanks


Hi Ian,

Thanks for using Easy Code!

I have tested EC on Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 (both, 32-bit and 64-bit) and there is no problem, so I do not know what can be happening. I attach an image of my settings for Masm32 and I hope it can help you. As you can see I have all tools in drive "G:".

Try running the executable with OllyDbg. Perhaps you can find out where exactly it crashes.


I just tried to use Easy Code as if I were a user who download it for the first time. In that case, as explained in the help file, all paths are referred to drive "C:" and you have to replace them with the right ones.
Anyway, downloading EC v2 for the first time and without modifying a single path, IT DOES NOT CRASH. You cannot compile anything, of course, but it does not crash.
So, as jj2007 says, try to run the executable with OllyDbg (or any other debugger) and maybe we will have a clue of the problem.

Hi rsala and jj2007

I'm using Easy Code 64 so OllyDbg warns about running it. I discovered what caused the crash. I had set the text encoding to Unicode. Reverting to ANSI fixed that.

Many thanks for the help


Glad to hear you solved the problem!
Some compilers do not accept Unicode files, so please take that into account when setting the text encoding.
