Debug is an ancient DOS utility. It is present in 32 bit Windows 7. It is not present in 64 bit Windows 7 because no 64 bit version of Windows supports 16 bit code. In that case you will need to install a suitable version of DOS on a virtual machine.

There is no 16-bit emulation (of which DEBUG was a part of) on non-x86 versions of Windows. Short of running a VM with DOS or an x86 version of Windows, your options are limited. I guess you could go with windbg, but that's probably more complex than what your teacher intended.

Thank You, I understand the WHY's just wanting to know a solution. We are doing simple loops and ect. When I did a search MSFT had debug software for win 7, but had no idea which one, or if they operate the same way with the old debug. We are just learning the principals of assembly , the registers etc. Thanks, Byron UGF Great Falls, MT
