Compile resource file with OpenWatcom 1.4
« on: March 02, 2006, 10:22:50 am »
Hi all,

First sorry for my bad english.
I'm a newbie C::B user. I use OW some years back without error. When I try OW project (win32 DLL) under C::B and compile it I get an error:
-------------- Build: default in Tools2 ---------------
Compiling: tools2.rc
Fatal Error! 60: Can't find file "tools2.exe".
Process terminated with status -1 (0 minutes, 0 seconds)
0 errors, 0 warnings
 
Why exe when it is a DLL? Of course I set all compiler and linker setting to project and I use latest nightly build.
The resource file (tools2.rc) contain only file version info.

Having Code::Blocks show the entire command line will help to pinpoint the issue. In the "Other" tab of your global compiler settings (Settings -> Compiler & Debugger), change Compiler logging to "Full command line". Then try to rebuild the project, and post the contents of the Build Log tab here.

I should add this to my sig...

Disclaimer: I've never used OpenWatcom before.

wrc.exe tools2.rc -fo=.objs\tools2.res -i=-iC:\watcom\include
Fatal Error! 60: Can't find file "tools2.exe".
This is your trouble line. Unless I misread it, wrc.exe is trying to link your .rc file up with an executable somehow. I searched for documentation on wrc and couldn't find any, so the question of whether the correct syntax is being used is left to someone else. If you can get along without tools2.rc in your DLL project, remove it from the project files; else, consider precompiling it or using a custom build command.

I have the same problem (and others):

I think it's a compiler-support related error!

WRC defaults to injecting a .rc into an EXE file. Switch -r is required to get it to compile a .rc to a linkable .res file. I also add $includes to eliminate the compile errors. Since Compiler settings Import&Export are both a bad idea *and* non working, here is the line from my .reg file.

"Compile Win32 resource file"="$rescomp -r -fo=$resource_output $includes $res_includes $file"

Thank you very much!
I set resource compiler macro (add -r option) and in this way good work!
