    Question Does nmake come with Windows?

    I was wondering if nmake comes with Windows, or I have to download it.
    If I have to download it, can someone post the link?
    I did a Google search for 'download nmake', but no direct links to Microsoft downloads turned up.

    If I'm not mistaken it comes with Visual Studio, so if you have that you're set.

    There's a download link about halfway down this page (way to hide it, Microsoft). It's an old version (the page says 2004, anyway) but I can't imagine a make tool changing much in the past 6 years.

    Or you could get MinGW and use GNU make if you're using this in your own project, there are a lot more resources for that program.

    Ok, thanks.
    I'm not running Windows right now, so can you tell me if that download is nmake itself, or if its an installer?
