MASM Programmer's Guide in CHM format
« on: August 08, 2006, 11:32:46 PM »

I created a version of the MASM Programmer's Guide in CHM format. It was too large to attach, so here is an external link.

MASM Programmer's Guide in CHM format

Use this one, it has better images. Thank's to andrejus for adding them in.

Greg,

this one is very useful.  ThumbsUp
Is it your intellectual property? And if so, would you mind if I translated it and included it in a Wiki?

DOES NOT WORK.  Every topic is blank.
If you have got the time, would you bother telling us what OS you have and what modifications (service packs, no IExplorer, etc. pp.) are installed?
Bug reports like "DOES NOT WORK" are pretty useless.

Did you map links to your local drives? All I'm seeing in every display panel is:

It's not my intellectual property. As far as I'm concerned, you can do whatever you like with it. The content is copyright Microsoft. I just changed the format (HTML to HTML Help). The same information is posted in several places on the web in PDF, Word and HTML formats and they've been there for quite some time.
 
As far as the problems, I have no idea, it worked for me.

It's pretty easy to make your own. 1. Download a copy of HTML Help Workshop (free).  2. Download the HTML version of the guide.  3. Create a CHM from the HTML.

No need, I was only testing the file to provide feedback.

I mentioned links because a friend had someone build his website, but when it was uploaded some of his images weren't working. I viewed the source and noticed the images were linked to the coder's hard drive (he didn't use relative links). My friend passed the info on and got the site fixed.

I can't even view the source in this CHM, since the default IE error page is the only thing displayed.

Wistrik,

I made sure and didn't put any paths in the links, just the filenames. Only two people have had problems with it. Maybe a bad download?

etc.

Solved the problem - I imagine comes with XP Service pack 2.

Right click on the file under WExplorer, select Properties, and you will see a message to the effect that because this file came from another computer it may have been blocked to protect yours.
Just deselect this and then it will work fine - for me anyway.

Thanks for providing this Greg - a valuable service to everyone! (Is there anyway to make the diagram details visible? - though they are better than the other copies I have.)

Howard,

I ran into that same CHM problem once too, it's an XP SP2 security "feature".

I used the images that came with the HTML version, they're pretty worthless. I looked around for better ones but couldn't find any. The Word version has the same lousy images.

Greg,
Thank you for making this guide so useful.  In the format it is in right now it is more user-friendly.  I would not worry too much about the images.
