Simply do a 

cd <the fpc dir>/bin/win32
copy asw.exe as.exe
copy ldw.exe ld.exe


In 1.9.x we removed all special "w" handling, and went back to the normal
names for windows.

Originally the adding of "w" was done to be able to use win32 and the dos
compiler together, but that is increasingly difficult anyway (since NT based
Windows versions have various flaws in the dos support).

So we properly separated dos and windows and renamed everything back to their
proper names.
