If you are like me and want the comfort and support that Microsoft’s Visual Studio 10 provides, then you will defiantly want that support in your MASM programming tasks. Visual studio makes this quite easy, with a couple of project property changes you will be on your way to MASM programming bliss.
Create new Visual C++ Empty Project
Right click on the newly created project and select Build Customizations; select masm option, press ok then save the project.
Go to project properties and select linker->system then change subsystem to Windows (/SUBSYSTEM:CONSOLE)
