    The "Classic" Link.exe Problem

    Hi,

    I downloaded Borland C++BuilderX Mobile Edition (for free, via Forum Nokia). I installed it.

    Then I installed ActivePerl 5.6.1 - and after that I installed S80_DP2_0_SDK_b2.

    Well, after setting up the SDK in the IDE, and trying to build, I get the "classic" error:

    'LINK.EXE' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    perl -S makmake.pl -D \SYMBIAN\PROJECTS\TEST01\GROUP\TEST01 WINS

    Which baffles me...

    In the S80_DP2_0_SDK_b2_User's_Guide.pdf it says that if that happens, I must install "Borland C++BuilderX Support for Microsoft SDKs" from the Mobile Edition CD... Which I don't have, because I downloaded it for free at Borland's website.

    I've tried Google, I've tried MSDN and I've tried Borlands Developer Network - with no luck so far in resolving this problem.

    In one of the threads here I saw someone mention Visual C++ 6.0 or Visual C++ .Net 2003... Can it really be true that I have to buy a different IDE, just to be able to use the IDE I already have? (Visual C++ is not exactly cheap!)

    BR,

    Did you read my post at all?

    I did download the C++BuilderX Mobile Edition from Borland's website (and it is version 1.5.0.402)!

    I'm trying to use the Series 80 (S80_DP2...) NOT the Series 60 SDK!

    So, I know where to get the IDE, but how should I solve the Link.exe problem?

    i have tons of problems with compilation like you. one of them was link.exe. but i found a link.exe in
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Vc7\bin

    i dont have Visual Studio. But i installed .net framework sdk. i think it came with this sdk. so install .net framework sdk it need .net framework also.install it first. they are free.

    after install them add
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Vc7\bin
    and
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Common7\IDE
    to the system PATH.

    in second path there is a dll file which is needed by link.exe. now i dont have link.exe problem but even now i have some problems. hope it works for you...

    you can do it through GUI in MS Windows:

    System -> Advanced -> Environmnet variables -> Path

    or use command line command "path":

    PATH c:\yourpathtoadd;%PATH%

    sirboole, Yes I can run my Hello World application. But I haven't tried debugging. After Hello World I started on the Dialer example and you can't debug that as it only runs on the device. I can run Dialer example on my nokia6600.

    NO I didn’t install VC++. I use Borland C++ BuilderX, but It does not work unless you also install .net framework sdk. To install .net framework sdk it needs .net framework also. These are two files – something like .net framework SDK and .net framework. These are free. .net framework is not VC++ its not Visual Studio .net either. But must be taken from Microsoft Visual Studio .NET.

    After installing these files you need to set the path exactly as InsOMniaCCodER says.

    after install them add
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Vc7\bin
    and
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Common7\IDE
    to the system PATH.

    I don’t remember the link for .net framework, but they are on nokia website.

    Re: The "Classic" Link.exe Problem

    Hey guys the solution is this: Just use the .NET 2003 command prompt not windows one and you will never have that problem again!!!

    Good luck
