I understand the problems of limited and slow bandwidth as I have been around since the telephone dial up days (28k if you were lucky) bit I would explore the Microsoft web site to find the smallest download possible, you need Visual Studio 2019 to get the right binaries.[./quote]Unfortunately there is no ebook on masm32.I'll sure to write a ebook on masm32 sdk and future masm64 SDK.

I am not sure why you keep repeating the desire to get them any other way. I understand limited bandwidth as I came from the 28k days (if you were lucky) but you have no choice than to get the binaries from Microsoft. When I first downloaded the DDK that had an early version of 32 bit ML.EXE, it took me 23 hours to get the download.You could try asking your internet service providor to get the download for you.I have also moved this topic as I don't want random meanderings posted in the the 64 bit MASM forum.

Once you have downloaded it, run it and it will give you a range of options. You want the ones at the top for "Desktop Development With C++"

You need to open it with an archiver (fine with 7-zip). This is apparently version 14: Microsoft (R) Macro Assembler (x64) Version 14.16.27045.0 591280 bytes of 21.11.2020I tested it with my 64-bit template: this version of ML64 seems to be utterly slow. Twenty seconds to assemble a Hello World is just too much. My standard version of ML64 (10.00.30319.01) does it in 700ms, UAsm does it in 400ms. AsmC is even a tick faster.
