Most programmers won't define a _TEXT segment. That is usually generated by using .MODEL and .CODE So look for a file that has this order of directives:
.386 ; or better processor type .model small
If you find a file with that sequence, reverse the sequence. The default segment size is the based on the assumed processor when the .MODEL directive is encountered. Enable the 32-bit instructions after you've established the memory MODEL.
A programming language is low level when its programs require attention to the irrelevant. Alan Perlis, Epigram #8
Thanks for the quick response! I changed the order of those statements and it worked out great. I experimented with the directions in MASM 6.0 Programmer’s Guide, but had no luck with that alternative method.
I have another program which will not assemble when i switch the ordering of the statements, however. This is a program written for entering big real mode....Looks like I'll be following up on the thread concerning this topic :)
Thanks again! It would have taken me days to figure that one out on my own!
