    makefile exported by vc 6.0 doesn't work

    Hi there,

    When a make file is exported with VC 6.0 "Export Makefile..." function, and executed from command line, it doesn't work. The error is
    Code:
    D:\iis>NMAKE /f "iis.mak"
    
    Microsoft (R) Program Maintenance Utility   Version 6.00.8168.0
    Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp 1988-1998. All rights reserved.
    
    No configuration specified. Defaulting to iis - Win32 Debug.
    NMAKE : fatal error U1073: don't know how to make '"c:\program files\microsoft v
    isual studio\vc98\include\basetsd.h"'
    Stop.
    The VC 6.0 is installed at "e:\...", but "c:\...". How to correct the makefile exported by VC 6.0 to make it work?

    Thanks,

    Did you run vcvars.bat/vsvars.bat (might call itself something like 'visual c++ command prompt' in its shortcut) before invoking nmake?

    No, I can not find them, no matter it is vcvars.bat or vsvars.bat. Where are they?

    Thanks,

    If you've properly installed vc6 then it should be one of the shortcuts in the program group under visual c++ with a name something like 'visual c++ command prompt', as I've previously described. This runs vcvars.bat ('vsvars.bat' with visual studio, I think) which sets various environment variables such as include, lib and compiler etc. paths. Do a search in your vc6 installation directory for 'vcvars.bat' and open it with a text editor if you want more specific information about it.

    It's VCVARS32.BAT. But even it is executed, and

    set MSVCDir=E:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98

    the problem is still there.

    >>VCVARS32.BAT<<

    Close enough.

    >>the problem is still there.<<

    Post the makefile - if it's huge it might be a better idea to zip it up and attach it rather than post it. Post any errors, too.

    The makefile looks okay to me. Do you actually have the 'basetsd.h', referred to in your original error message, in your vc6 'include' directory. If I recall correctly, it was not included in the default vc++ 6.0 installation but was a part of later sdks. Have you applied any psdk updates since you installed vc6? If not, you should, although I suspect you'll have to dig a little on microsoft's downloads site to find a version compatible with vc6. The latest version can be downloaded from here but I'm not sure it will be fully comptible with vc6.
