Re: Is it legal to use PE and DLLs?

Hello, It is legal to use PEs (and thus DLLs) although I do encourage eventually moving to your own customized format later on. You arent using Microsoft components but rather just a specification to write your own components. How sure are you? I thought that the DOS PE HEADER where Microsoft things?

Re: Q: How to invoke function in *.INC files?

Hello, Because of the way *.inc files are included, if the function is defined in the *.inc file it can be invoked the same way as any other routine (using CALL). I do personally recommend a more structured approach however you must be careful as the boot loader in the series is flat binary. Since ...

Re: How many people are working on the Neptune OS project?

I am wondering, how many people are working on the OS the actual Neptune Operating System (OS), and then they share the amazing tutorials. I believe Mike is the only one working on it, and since it's an in-house project, I doubt he'll be releasing any information about it. Are you sure? Can really ...

Is it legal to use PE and DLLs?

Hi again,

I hope Mike can answer this Q.

PE and DLL(s) are Microsoft components right?
Isn't it illegal to use them then?

According to this: http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/system/pl ... ecoff.mspx

Does Microsoft have PATENT on the PE and DLL(s)?

Any idea?

Thanks!

Re: Offset?

Because your questions are not making logical sense. You asked "what does offset mean" and had two answers. One for the question "what does the word offset mean" and one for the question "what does the offset in this specific case mean". The fact that you are still asking the same origininal questi...
