    Using NMAKE?

    Hi,
    I'm trying to build a project .mak file using NMAKE, but it can't find some standard headers:
    Code:
    ..\..\source\DES\Des.c(7) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'memory.h': No such file or directory
    NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'cl.exe' : return code '0x2'
    Stop.
    How do I tell NMAKE where my Include & Lib directories are?
    Putting it in my PATH doesn't help.

    memory.h is not a standard header.

    I mean "standard" as in one that comes with VC++, not "the C++ standard" which only has a handful of headers.
    memory.h IS in the include directory for VC++.

    Did you do "memory.h" or <memory.h>?

    It makes not a big difference - "" first looks for the file in the current folder than in the same places as <>

    I suppose to add these place into compiler search path you need to use -I command line key

    You can look at the command line build by the GUI in the project settings

    After I set an environment variable "INCLUDE" to the VC++ include directory it got past those errors. I got some different problems now, but I'll fix those on Monday.
