:dazzled:  I totally missed that myself. It did assemble though, so most likely it was ignored by ml.

That's a bit odd; I'm using linker version 5.12.8078 and I've never had any problems with .PDB files. I use OllyDbg though.

Have you tried Olly? It's a very good debugging tool.
Assembly language programming should be fun. That's why I do it.

I have also suggested ollydbg. Ida is overkill, imo. Not sure about ghidra, never used it. Also I don't trust anything (ghidra) supposedly offered up by the NSA of all entities. NSA on GitHub - ghidra. You gotta ask yourself, what is the NSA's motive?
The Answer I had to look it up... not trying to promote any conspiracy theories, but I do find it rather odd.

Oh yeah, nothing at all suspicious about the NSA, for chrissakes, posting code for us to use, eh? I'd sooner use anything posted by some QAnon jerk ... no thanks.

Where is Ed Snowden when we need him?

Re: ghidra

I had missed sinsi's post here: https://masm32.com/board/index.php?topic=7924.0. I came across it today.
