I used next flags and it works:
tasm32 -i..\include -kh32768 -l -ml -m -n -w2 -z -zi hello.asm
ilink32 -v -L..\lib hello.obj, hello.exe,, import32.lib

td32 hello.exe

Please note, that your Include and Lib maybe in other places...

Hello dimitry,
Thanks a lot for your help. It works. I would like to use use this opportunity for asking you severl questions.
1. The ilink32 displays the following warning: unable to load dll lnkdfm50 ? is it possible to suppress it ?
2. Why the exe file created by tlink32 /v  doen't work with td32.exe ?
3. How, exactly, tasm32 /m2 file.asm works ? Does it create two files (one in each pass ?)
4. Where can I find explanations about ilink32's switches ?
Thanks in advance,
xyoavx

1. It seems like lnkdfm50.dll has some concern to Delphi stuff. I don't know if it is possible to suppress it.
2. I don't have tlink32, I can not check this issue, sorry.
3. tasm32 /m2 does 2 passes to resolve forward references. How it is exactly implemented I think only its developer knows. It may create intermediate file after stage 1, but
    it may create internal structure in the memory as well. Take a look about two pass assebler expalantion:

4. If you run ilink32.exe without parameters it shows all its flags with short description. More detailed description can be found in file bcb5tool.hlp in your help subdir.
