Hi i installed symbian os 1.0 (1.2 was giving me too much of a headache with bugs) , im running msvc with sp3. i can compile console apps fine, using abld makefile vc6, or even abld build wins udeb. however, when i try to compile anything that uses windows, like the bitmap example, i get no notification that an error occured with abld build wins udeb, but no EXE is created. when i use vis studio, i keep getting the same 'perl return code 0x9'. ill post the full error PLEASE HELP! thank you :)
pls note: this is the same error 'line 161' thing for ALL window apps, it isnt the code itself.

bla ---- perl -s epocrc.pl -l

*cant execute cpp at C:\SYMBIAN\6.1\SHARED\EPOC32\TOOLS\epocrc.pl line 161
NMAKE: fatal error U1077: perl return code 0x9
stop.
error executing c:\windows\system\cmd.exe


so anyway i went to line 161 of epocrc.pl and it said
$cpp_status !=0; (to return 0x9 error). whats going on?
