I have a W10 machine now and wonder of wonders AS7 installed with no issues. ( Could not get it to go on either of 2 W7 machines).
So, I found a tutorial pdf that has a simulator project and I started there.
Got the new project , entered the code, started the debugger with simulator and it was ALMOST perfect.
Tutorial shows a window pane called processor status that displays registers and other interesting stuff. Not on my display and I can't see any way to get it. There's a pane marked system (or something like that) in it's place that I can alternate with properties. Can't find anything that wants to launch processor status.
I'm sure that this is just a simple thing, and I could probably figure it out within the next decade, but I'd be grateful for the answer.
