    build workspace problem

    My question is related to Symbian tools & SDKs. The question is:

    "I am using VC6 and installed Active Perl 5.8.4 and Series 60 SDKs For Symbian OS, Nokia Edition. When I used the command abld makefile vc6 to build the work space the following error appears:

    C:\Symbian\6.1\Series60\Series60Ex\hello\group>abld makefile vc6

    nmake -nologo -f


    'nmake' is not recognized as an internal or external command,

    operable program or batch file.

    I installed the active perl using the MSI file and automatically it
    set the environment variables. Do I have to do this manually? If yes,
    How should I do this?"

    I would really appreciate your quick replay.

    path, EPOCROOT

    It appears that nmake is not in your path.

    type 'set PATH' and make sure.

    If memory serves, EPOCROOT (or maybe it's EPOCPATH) is included in your system path.
    (see My Computer>Properties->Advanced->Environment Variables)

    Make sure EPOCROOT is correct. Remember you have to open a new DOS window after you change it.

    I have seen problems like this occur if you install the SDK before installing PERL. If this is what happened, them reinstalling the SDK may be the simplest fix.

    Good luck,
