    Question A problem in building project files

    When I run the command: abld makefile vc6
    This Error pops up (In Cmd Window):

    make -r -f "\Symbian\7.0s\Series60_v20\EPOC32\BUILD\SYMBIAN\7.0S\SERIES60_V20
    \EXAMPLES\HELLOWORLD\VC6.make" MAKEFILE VERBOSE=-s
    perl -S makmake.pl -D \SYMBIAN\7.0S\SERIES60_V20\EXAMPLES\HELLOWORLD\HELLOWORLD
    VC6

    MMPFILE "\SYMBIAN\7.0S\SERIES60_V20\EXAMPLES\HELLOWORLD\HELLOWORLD.MMP"
    WARNING(S)
    \SYMBIAN\7.0S\SERIES60_V20\EXAMPLES\HELLOWORLD\HELLOWORLD.MMP(20) : SYSTEMINCLUD
    E path "\Symbian\7.0s\Series60_v20\EPOC32\INCLUDE\TECHVIEW\" not found

    'LINK.EXE' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.
    ERROR: failed to find version information for LINK.EXE
    make: *** [MAKEFILEHELLOWORLD] Error 1

    I want to use MS Visual C++ IDE to create applications
    and my SDK is 2nd Edition (Initial Version)

    what does this error mean?
    what solutions could be there?

    thanks.

    Re: A problem in building project files

    It may happen that you have an item called "Visual Studio Command prompt" in the Start Menu, that can be a short-time solution.
    Otherwise, right-click on My Computer, Properties, Advanced, Environment variables, there you can modify the path.

    Re: A problem in building project files

    By my experience one more solution,
    firstly install SDK s60_2nd_sdk_fp3, this installation process configure your pc for symbian development perfectly (sets environment variable and all paths required), then install SDK s60_v_1_2 which automatically configure for perl and java. So that you never face LINK.EXE problem.
    Vikas.

    Though it can be your experience, note that Perl and Java has nothing to do with Visual Studio
    So that you never face LINK.EXE problem.
    You do not face the missing link.exe, because you have checked the box "Register environment variables" (or something similar) when you have installed the Visual Studio.

    Re: A problem in building project files

    ok, my problem is solved

    thanks for everyone whose worked for it.

    and the total solution was by assigning Path variable in

    System Environment Variables.

    but there is a warning which says:

    Should install MSVC SP3

    does this warning affect my developing process in future?

    thanks.

    Re: A problem in building project files

    Are you unable to write "Yes, I am using Visual Studio 6"? Anyway, apparently you do use VS6.
    Generally it is a good idea to update softwares, and yes, it also applies to VS6. Currently there is at least a Service Pack 6 for it, around 60 megabytes, otherwise completely free.
