I am having a problem with my loop not function right and I think I have narrowed the problem down to the MACRO I made for reading in integers the ECX register isn't obtaining a value and stays at 0 while EAX get the value of 1, so when I try my loop using the variable declared it falls into the infinite loop. I tested and loops will do that if you make the counter 0.

Here is my MACRO:

mReadInt MACRO intNum:REQ
	push eax
	push ecx
	mov eax, OFFSET intNum
	mov ecx, SIZEOF intNum
	call ReadInt
	pop ecx
	pop eax
ENDM

Here is my loop:

mov ecx, number
LP1:
	mWriteString _string
	call Crlf
	LOOP LP1

Not enought code, to help you,

however Loop decrements ecx and checks for zero. So unless <number> is the loop count, there's a problem.

Here is full code, I cleaned it all up and made it one macro instead of multiple so it is less lines.

You are using a macro within a macro, which normally isn't a good thing to do. BUT, you still don't have enough information.

Crlf
readstring
WriteString

based upon the non standardization of the naming this indicates these are not standard library functions.

Need to see them too!

Also, get those macros out of the main line code. Put them at the top of the file!

Why are you calling dumpregs? Why not single-step and examine the register values at each step!

I figured it out it was simple I was trying to make this to hard

all I did was change the int part to

mWrite "Enter integer: "
	call readint
	mov number, eax

then for the loop all I had to do was mov ecx, number
