    abld makefile vc6

    HI. Why I can't make vc6 project files. See below the abld command and error message:

    C:\Symbian\6.1\Series60\Epoc32Ex\HelloWorld>abld makefile vc6

    nmake -nologo -f "\Symbian\6.1\Series60\EPOC32\BUILD\SYMBIAN\6.1\SERIES60\EPOC32EX\HELLOWORLD\VC6.make" MAKEFILE VERBOSE=-s

    The name specified is not recognized as an
    internal or external command, operable program or batch file.


    What might be wrong?

    check your .mmp file. Some unknown word or improper syntax might be used

    It sounds like nmake is not in your path. Type "nmake" and see if it runs.

    nmake is the Visual Studio make file, which the tool chain uses to build it's files, and is usually located in (something like)

    c:\program files\microsoft visual studio\vc98\bin

    If this is not on you path it needs to be added. The usual reason for this not being on your path, is that the Visual Studio enviroment variables have not been added. If you look in

    c:\program files\microsoft visual studio\vc98\bin
    there should be a program called VCVARS32.BAT. Running this should update your path, and nmake may then work. You then have the choice of running VCVARS32.BAT each time you start the command prompt, or adding all the environment settings into windows.

    Any use ?

    Did you use the command "bldmake bldfiles" first?

    RE: abld makefile vc6

    When I type

    nmake.exe

    into the command (dos) window, I get the following output :


    Microsoft (R) Program Maintenance Utility Version 6.00.8168.0
    Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp 1988-1998. All rights reserved.

    NMAKE : fatal error U1064: MAKEFILE not found and no target specified
    Stop.

    What happens when you try this ?
