Core MSIL Assembler

This post contains instructions for downloading/installing the current prototype of the Core MSIL Assembler, and will be updated as new versions are published; explanations of what the assembler is and what it does will appear in later posts.


The assembler is built on version 4 of the .NET Framework. This is automatically installed by Windows Update on Windows 7 & Vista, and is an optional update for Windows XP; you can also download it here.

Download & Install

You can download the assembler here. There's currently no installation step, just unzip and run the CoreAssembler.exe app where it is by dragging a xxx.core file onto it. There's also a CompileAll.bat file that you can run to automatically compile all the example code.
