Description

Failed to set the ml.exe / ml64.exe as tool for *.asm files. Issue for both x86 and x64 projects.

Upgraded projects work as they should - even when adding new files.

Hi,

Thanks for reporting this issue. The issue you are experiencing is by design. The reason you are experiencing this is because by default the custom build rule for MASM is turned off. To enable this tools right click on the project and choose "Build Customizations". In Build customizations window check the "masm". After enabling this custom build rule when you add ".asm" file it will automatically be associated with "Macro Assembler" tool.

Thanks,
Amit Mohindra
