"Command execution failed..."
« on: February 17, 2005, 03:07:44 pm »
First, thanks to developers for great IDE.

Second, problem:
I'm truing to compile wxWidgets from codeblocks, using Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit 2003 compiler. I imported project, changed secttings apporiately, etc, it mostly compiles. But:
After compiling quite many files (but not all), i get  "Command execution failed..." error

I tried starting compiling again, and got that:
Code: [Select]

Project   : wxWindows
Compiler  : Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit 2003 (called directly)
Directory : C:\wxWindows-2.4.2\src\
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Switching to target: default
Command execution failed...


What exactly it means, and what to do with it? Seems that it's codeblocks-related thing.

Hi
in Setting/Configure Plugins/Compiler
select the correct compiler,
click on the "Other" tab and
set "Compiler Logging" combo to "Full Command Line"
than post again the compiler log

tnx, walter

Fixed it... rc wasn't in path. Thanks for "full command line" tip.

When "Command execution failed" appears, switch to the "Code::Blocks Debug" message tab. It contains the failed command line.
To display this tab, if it is not visible, go to Settings/Environment (you will have to restart CB to show it).

This bug will be fixed soon...

Another thing: I wanted to create a project file for wx compilation but haven't found the time yet. If you succeed and you want to contribute, send me the working project file you created so that I can put it on a web page (along with project files for other compilers). I was planning on putting together a small HOWTO for wx compilation, but this would simplify things a lot...

Today I created the GCC project file for wx :)

Thanks,
Yiannis.

thanks again.

I finally compiled wx from commandline using make with bat file i wrote:

Code: [Select]

set WXWIN=X:\
set MSVC=C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit 2003
set MSSDK=C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDK
set INCLUDE=%MSVC%\include;%MSSDK%\include
set LIB=%MSVC%\lib;%MSSDK%\lib
set PATH=%MSVC%\bin;%MSSDK%\bin;%MSSDK%\bin\win64;%PATH%
rem  create fake drive x:
rem ntsubst x: C:\wxWindows-2.4.2
subst  x: C:\wxWindows-2.4.2
x:
cd \src
rem you need to get nmake and rc from somewhere. IIRC i used ones from msvc6.0
rem nmake -f makefile.vc FINAL=1 cleanall
nmake -f makefile.vc FINAL=1 BUILD=release SHARED=1 RUNTIME_LIBS=dynamic all
rem nmake -f makefile.vc FINAL=1 BUILD=release SHARED=0 RUNTIME_LIBS=dynamic all


But i haven't sucesed to compile DLL yet, only statically linked lib. Some piece of wx documentation is missing so i don't sure how to compile DLL

Maybe i'll copypaste some compiler parameters from makefiles and try compiling it from code::blocks again. I had to do it to compile demos and samples to work with static lib.

You just have to add WXMAKINGDLL=1 in the nmake command line  :mrgreen:

Tried that... Looked at makefiles today, and found mistake in src/makefile.vc , it contains
Code: [Select]

cd msw
nmake -f makefile.vc FINAL=$(FINAL)
cd $(THISDIR)

and WXMAKINGDLL is not passed any further, heh.

Invoked src/msw/makefile.vc directl, got "missing delayimp.lib"... removed delayed DLL loading stuff and compiled ok. Examples works. (except always needed to remove odbc32.lib and odbccp32.lib from linker options . Have no idea why everyone link with unnecessary libs...)

BTW, i found small bug:

When importing microsoft visual c++ project, it asks what compiler to use. I choose "microsoft visual c++ toolkit 2003" . Then it asks to "convert compiler/linker command line switches to GCC's switches , yes/no?" . I choose "no" . Then i open project->build options , and see that while in project settings itself, visual c++ toolkit is selected, in "default target" ,GCC is selected. It prevents things from compiling.
