Hello respected members,

I have installed visual studio 2005 on my new dell xps 1210 m laptop, with MASM 8.0 since i am taking the assembly language class. The problem is it doesn't work because i am on the windows vista operating system. Can anyone help me resolve this problem? I would highly appreciate or do any of you guys know any links that would help me resolve the issue? MASM works perfectly fine on my windows XP desktop computer , but now that i have the new laptop, i cant get any programs i wrote to compile.. Please HELP thank you guys !!

Regards , Anan
