Unable to compile resources
« on: April 13, 2005, 06:28:41 am »
I'm using MS VC++ Toolkit 2003

When I add a .rc file to my project and rebuild, the output gives me "Command execution failed." I have "rc.exe" in my Microsoft SDK directory, what more do I need? In the files build options, it says "WINDRES." Is this the program I need?

Thanks in advanced, and by the way, the new server are blazing fast! Nice!

You can copy rc.exe in the toolkit's bin folder (where cl.exe is).
Or add the path to rc.exe in the PATH...

Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

Oh nevermind, I found that if I set PATH in Control Panel->System to the MS SDK bin directory, I could run rc.exe from any directory. Thanks!
