Yo dawgs, welcome to my blog on Windows Assembly Tutorial! If you’re scratching your head about what assembly language is, don’t sweat it! Assembly language (also known as ASM) is a low-level programming language used to communicate with your computer and operating system. In this post, I’m going to show y’all how to get started with Windows Assembly Tutorial, specifically the windows x64 assembly language tutorial.
Before we dive in, let me break down some basics. Windows ASM is a bit different than regular ASM. It’s specifically designed to work with the Windows operating system, making it great for things like writing device drivers, hooking into the operating system, and other low-level tasks. Windows x64 is a newer version of the language that’s optimized for 64-bit processors.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s get started with the Windows Assembly Tutorial!
First things first, you’ll need a few things to get started. You’ll need a Windows operating system (duh!), a text editor (Notepad++ or Visual Studio), and an Assembler (NASM or MASM). Once you have these, you’re ready to start hacking away!
Writing Your First Program
Alright, it’s time to dive into your first program. Here’s a simple Hello World! program to get you started:
; Print Hello World!
mov eax, 4 ; system call for write
mov ebx, 1 ; file descriptor for stdout
mov ecx, message ; address of string to output
mov edx, 13 ; number of bytes
int 0x80 ; call kernel
mov eax, 1 ; system call for exit
xor ebx, ebx ; exit code 0
int 0x80 ; call kernel
message db ‘Hello World!’,0x0a ; the string to output
Save this code as hello.asm. Now, we need to assemble it into an executable file. Open up a command prompt, navigate to where you saved the file and run the following command:
nasm -f elf64 -o hello.o hello.asm && ld -s -o hello hello.o
This should create an executable file named hello in the same folder as your hello.asm source file.
Well, there you have it dawgs – your first Windows Assembly Tutorial program! Remember, this is just the tip of the iceberg. There’s a lot more to learn about ASM and Windows ASM specifically, but hopefully this gets you started down the right path. Keep coding, keep learning, and keep pushing yourself to be the best!
Thanks for tuning in!
