bldmake fails with "EPOCROOT environment variable must be capitalised" error
KIS000609
Overview
In some environments, the bldmake command may fail with the "EPOCROOT environment variable must be capitalised" error.
Category
Symbian C++
Subcategory
SDK & Tools
Reported against
S60 2nd Edition
S60 3rd Edition
Date identified
March 30, 2007
Symptoms
-
Detailed description
This error is returned by the e32env.pm script when opening a pipe to the command line fails.
How to reproduce
-
Solution
Typically this error is related to the PATH environment variable. bldmake fails if the system32 directory in the PATH is defined using the SystemRoot variable, that is
%SystemRoot%\system32
To fix this, modify the PATH to use an absolute path for \system32. For example,
C:\Windows\system32
Note: With current S60 SDKs (2nd Edition and later), EPOCROOT should not be explicitly defined. Instead, the active development configuration is selected with the devices.exe utility.
