    Warning: .drectve `%.*s' unrecognized

    Hello.

    Can any body help me with this warning:
    Warning: .drectve `%.*s' unrecognized

    I think it's cause in a .lib / .a file (I use dev-cpp), but I have no clue which library it comes from and what I'll have to do when I find out. I suppose I may have to get the source for the lib. and compile it myself.

    Anyway, if you had this error, please try to help me.

    Thx.

    Hard to say, without you posting it in some context

    Is this a linker or compiler warning? It could come from parsing a printf argument string, GCC can do that.
    All the buzzt!

    Hi. I've been away from the project for a while, but I've NOT given up...

    Let me try to elaborate a bit on the problem.
    The following is the entire compile log:

    Hmmm...
    I'll hazard a guess. I think one of the libraries you have there was built for a newer version of Dev-C++ than the one you have.

    Dev-cpp version

    Yesterday, before trying to compile, I reinstalled Dev-C++.

    Before reinstalling I removed Dev-C++ (Add/remove program in control panel) and then deleted my Dev-C++ directory. Do you think I should have deleted more direcories or files?

    I installed Dev-C++ version 4.9.9.1 and used the Web Update Module to get the DirectX9c sdk package.

    I'm not sure about the libfmod.a file... that could be for another compiler... hmmm. I wonder if I can find one that works with Dev-C++.. . I assume that what I really should look for is one that works with gcc, right?

    I guess it's worth a go. :-)

    ... I sure hope I can get around this with out changing compiler.

    I went to www.fmod.org and got the latest version of fmodlib.a

    That didn't change anything. hmmm... what to do, what to do.

    Link only a single of your object files. You'll get loads of unresolved symbols, but so what...
    Repeat with each object file. If at any point you get the error, check that source file for strange pragmas or code, recompile it, whatever.
    If none of your object files exhibits the error, start adding the libraries, one by one.

    Eventually, you should find out just where the error lies, which is a big step towards solving the problem.
