What version of gnumake are you using on Windows? When I use 3.81 I get similar errors compiling my code in extensions. When I switch to 4.1 the errors disappear.

Do these files optionally included from asyn/configure/RELEASE exist and contain anything?

-include $(TOP)/../configure/SUPPORT.$(EPICS_HOST_ARCH)
-include $(TOP)/../configure/EPICS_BASE.$(EPICS_HOST_ARCH)

Where $(EPICS_HOST_ARCH) is probably win32-x86-static for the builds you have been doing.

Hi Mark,

modified any of the files in base/configure/os?
No. I've checked carefully.

The RELEASE file is attached (as been fiddling with D:'s and slashes).

Which set are you referring to?
Do you mean setting the path to perl, called from win32.bat?

D:\EPICS>REM   --------------- ActiveState perl -------------------

D:\EPICS>set PATH=C:\Perl\bin;C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\Wbem

Cheers,

Peter.

Strange, it is putting the current path in front of the path to the perl script in base.

Have you modified any of the files in base/configure/os?

Send the contents of asyn/configure/RELEASE and the output of the "set" command.

Mark

Hi Mark,

That's a combination that I've tried, with the result attached.

Cheers,

Peter.

I define EPICS_BASE like this:
EPICS_BASE=H:/epics/base-3.14.12.5

I use a drive letter and forward slashes.

Hi Mark, Jani,

Thank you for your responses.

FYI my build directory structure has:
D:\EPICS
	Base
	Support
		Seq
		Asyn
		...

I have configured RELEASE in these modules as:
	EPICS_BASE=\EPICS\base

I have also experimented with (explicitly) D:\EPICS\base - I prefer to avoid doing so, as the C: drive could be used.
I have also experimented with various combinations of the slash character.
None of this made any difference.

You are correct, perl -CSD \EPICS\base/bin/win32-x86-static/makeMakefile.pl ... is the correct and expected output.
I have no idea why D:/EPICS/support/asyn/configure/ has been prepended - it doesn't make any sense.

Also, why are the directories '.' and '..' being compiled as perl scripts, resulting in 'permission denied'?
BTW, I have not set any unusual permissions - (Everyone - Read only), (Administrators, system and myself, full control).

Cheers,

Peter.

Hi Peter,

I agree with Jani.

This is what you are getting:

make[1]: Entering directory `D:/EPICS/support/asyn/configure'
perl -CSD D:/EPICS/support/asyn/configure/\EPICS\base/bin/win32-x86-static/makeMakefile.pl O.win32-x86-static ../..

This is what I get:

make[1]: Entering directory 'C:/EPICS/Support-3-15/asyn-R4-26/configure'
perl -CSD C:/EPICS/base-3.15.2/bin/windows-x64/makeMakefile.pl O.windows-x64 ../..

For some reason for you it is putting the current path in front of the path to the makeMakefile.pl script in EPICS base.

How have you defined EPICS_BASE in asyn/configure/RELEASE?

Mark

Hi,

I just downloaded EPICS base 3.15.2, superseding previous 3.15.1.  I
am experiencing a problem building any of the support modules, while
using the make file build.  (There is no problem building base 3.15.2
itself, however.)

I've built all the same code successfully on Linux, while using
3.15.2.

See attached, these are examples when trying to build Asyn or Seq, but
this applies to all modules I've looked at, and to different build
configurations I've attempted.  It all built OK when using 3.15.1.

What could I be missing?

This doesn't look so good

     perl -CSD D:/EPICS/support/asyn/configure/\EPICS\base/bin/win32-x86-static/makeMakefile.pl O.win32-x86-static ../..

i.e. that "\EPICS\base" part.

I would check the contents of asyn/configure/RELEASE for definitions of SUPPORT and EPICS_BASE or the contents of environment variables.
