Hello. Im very new to assembly. Like, 2 weeks new. Im an IT student and I want to practice assembly in my very own laptop. I want to download assembly resources but Im not sure what. I know this exists in the assembly resources thread but Im really clueless. It might take me a few hours to know / do trial and errors on the downloads which I really don't want.
So, I need your help guys. I want to download assembly resources for windows 7. I want to make my program in a textpad, in .asm format then convert it to .com. I have TextPad 5.4 and I want to see outputs in the command prompt. Can you guys tell me / give links to which versions of masm, link and exe2bin I should download?
I've tried googling it and there were so many versions, Im afraid to download anything because I don't know what to download and I might end up getting virus. Can you please help?
