Article #15704: TASM install on top of BC 5

FAQ704C.txt   TASM install on top of BC 5
Category   :Command Line Tools
Platform    :All
Product    :   BC++5.x


I just installed TASM and now whenever I start a resource project
IRW ( integrated resource workshop ) seems to hang.


TASM ships with BRCC32 5.00.

Borland C++ 5.01 and Borland C++ 5.02 ship/will ship with 
versions 5.01 and 5.02 respectively.

The problem is RW32CORE.DLL, which is shared by BRCC32, BCW, 
and IRW for resource compiling and editing purposes.  The 5.00 
version of this DLL will *not* work with IRW 5.01 or later for 
editing purposes.  It will also not work with C++ builder for 
resource compiling purposes.

So, if one installs TASM on top of BC++ 5.01 or BC++ 5.02, then 
IRW will cease to work.
The patch does change RW32CORE.DLL, but it should reject 
patching the 5.00 version of this DLL so installing the 5.01 
patch will not restore all files required by IRW.

The solution is to backup RW*.DLL and BRC*.EXE, install TASM, 
and then restore the backups.

If the problem has already occured, one can copy RW*.DLL and 
BRC*.EXE from the install CD for BC++ 5.XX and reinstall any 
patches that are appropriate (e.g. 5.01A).
