The PROC directive used with arguments requires a language specifier in the .MODEL directive in the Microsoft Macro Assembler (MASM) versions 5.1, 5.1a, and 6.0, and also in the Microsoft QuickAssembler versions 2.01 and 2.51. The language specifier is required because it determines which parameter passing convention will be used with the PROC arguments. If you do not specify a language on the PROC line, the error
will be generated by MASM 5.1 and 5.1a, and by QuickAssembler 2.01 and 2.51. The error
A2022: Operand must be type specifier
will be generated by MASM 6.0.
A2119: language type must be specified
