Strange Error Message

Hey,

When assembling a program with a86, it inserts the following error message:

=======================================================

INC esi ; add 1 to esi
~ ^
@#

=======================================================

Can anyone help me resolve this problem? I cant see what it means, maybe somthing to do with esi being 32-bit? it should be a byte, by the way... Thanks in advance for any help!

    [blue]A86 is old. It 'thinks' that ESI is a variable and asking what type of variable it is. Try to put ".386" at the top, but I doubt it will help. You need a 32-bit assembler.[/blue]

    Tasm is Asmguru62's favorite, and it's available for free also
    if you hunt for it, or ask him where it's at?
    I think I got Turbo 5.0 & Tlink which works quite well actually.

    Masm32 is also available in a Win environment .zip

    But I'm a Nasm nut.

    [blue]Strange thing... little over a year ago TASM was available to download from some sites, but now looks like it disappeared from the free download. I asked Borland: why not make TASM 5.0 free as MASM32? Never got back any answer...[/blue]

    I did get my Tasm a while back, but I'll bet it's still available via a google search.
    Hidden in a personal site or archived some where.
    Some youth related sites often shove programs of value in seemingly useless.zip files then tell their friends to get useless.zip
    I can't remember where I got it.
    But I did get the code to INSIGHT.COM debugger & it's in Tasm 5.0 & Tlink.
    It assembles a DOS 486 debugger that's real nice.
    100% asm code, simple writing style, some encripting, few comments, GNU licence.
    DO YOU WANT IT?
    When I get it fixed I could Email it to you??? (in a week?)

    [blue]Thanks, but I do not need more ASM tools for now... I code only for Win32 (DOS is out!) and I use TASM32 and OllyDbg - this debugger is insane! - I will never tire to repeat that![/blue]
