How to run Inline Assembly with Compiler Generated Assembly Code

Post by DeVaughnBB » Tue Jun 21, 2022 1:40 pm

Hi currently I am attempting to use inline assembly language with compiler generated assembly code and while I have known Assembly Language for years this is my 1st time using inline assembly.

Issue: When I use a section of my compiler generated assembly code in my C++ program which I Inlined I get a syntax error stating that it doesn't recognize my definitions even though they are pulled from my C++ program.

My Question: How do I fix my Assembly syntax so my Inline Assembly Code will read my Assembly data?

My Assembly Code and list of errors are below

Software I am using: Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 C++
Platform: Windows 10

If you need additional specs due to it being Assembly Language let me know

Here are my list of errors:

Code: Select all
