Win 3.1 Assembler IDE?

(1/2) > >>

Shintaro:
Hi,
I was wondering if anyone knew of an assembler IDE that runs in Windows 3.x?

Something like WinASM.

Regards,
Craig

Hi Craig,

See Donkey's answer at the end of http://www.asmcommunity.net/forums/topic/?id=13602

What do you need it for? I did a lot of 16-bit coding on 3.1, often thunking to Win32s.

Craig,

Can you run MASM 6.0 or 6.11 PWB ? Its a really long time ago but I always liked it back then.

There are some "bucket list" projects I want to complete. To be honest, I kind of prefer win 3.1 but no further than Win95. No distractions.
WinASM 5.1 doesn't work on  Win 3.1. I'll keep looking.

I like the IDE layout of WinASM, but unless I can find an old version of WinASM, I'll run PWB in a dos window under 3.1.

Open Watcom for DOS has a GUI IDE, I haven't checked to see if MASM can be used instead of the Watcom compiler.
Thanks guys, I appreciate the help.

Borland C++ 3.1, MS VC 1.52 or indeed Watcom - Open Watcom supports Win3.1 until recently - at least in theory. Since all 3 environments include  an assembler, they might do what you want.

Biggest problem perhaps is that they require Win3.1 to run in enhanced mode. You need a good Win3.1 graphics driver that allows to switch between the GUI and DOS boxes - smoothly.

If you find a really good working solution, let us know!
