Problem with paths Windows 7

Post by ijm51000 » Thu Jun 20, 2013 4:46 pm

Hi,

I wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction

I installed from the complete download which includes MinGW & wxWidgets

Followed the defaults on installation but get the following error in bold

C:\windows\system32\cmd.exe /c "mingw32-make.exe -j 2 -e -f "test.mk" all"
----------Building project:[ test - Debug ]----------
g++ -c "C:/Users/Banaz/Documents/programs/test/test/main.cpp" -g -O0 -Wall -mthreads -DHAVE_W32API_H -D__WXMSW__ -D__WXDEBUG__ -D_UNICODE -IC:\wxWidgets-2.9.4\lib\gcc_dll\mswud -IC:\wxWidgets-2.9.4\include -DWXUSINGDLL -Wno-ctor-dtor-privacy -pipe -fmessage-length=0 -fno-keep-inline-dllexport -o ./Debug/main.o -I.
C:/Users/Banaz/Documents/programs/test/test/main.cpp:1:21: fatal error: wx/init.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
mingw32-make.exe: *** [Debug/main.o] Error 1
test.mk:95: recipe for target `Debug/main.o' failed
1 errors, 0 warnings


If I give the full path to "C:\wxWidgets-2.9.4\include\wx\init.h" in the source file then the error changes to indicate an include file is missing from within init.h which makes sense as I have not globally altered the include path.

I have tried both / & \ for the path it makes no difference

C:\wxWidgets-2.9.4\include Is the correct path for wxWidgets
C:\MinGW-4.7.1 is correct for MinGW

Hope someone can point me in the right direction

best regards

Ian

My guess: you have another mingw32-make.exe in your path (probably MSYS) that does not understand backslashes

Open a file in codelite, right click on its tab and select 'Open Shell at file path'
Next,type 'which mingw32-make' and confirm which mingw32-make.exe is being used by codelite

Hi Eran,

Thanks for such a quick response, please find below output from shell


C:\Users\Banaz\Documents\programs>which mingw32-make
C:/MinGW-4.7.1/bin/mingw32-make.EXE

This seems correct?

All the best

Ian

This problem definitily seems like a problem in the installation of mingw.
Try typing 'which g++'

Do you have another MinGW installation? or Cygwin?

Hi Eran,

I have deleted everything that I think could be related, I had codeblocks but I uninstalled it, I had and old MinGW which I had renamed but have now deleted.

I am sure it is something silly on my part but I just cannot find it.

Here is my system path -
PATH=C:\Program Files (x86)\ActiveState Komodo Edit 8\;C:\WinAVR-20100110\bin;C:
\WinAVR-20100110\utils\bin;C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Window
s Live;C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Windows Live;C:\wind
ows\system32;C:\windows;C:\windows\System32\Wbem;C:\windows\System32\WindowsPowe
rShell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Shared;C:\Program Files\Microso
ft SQL Server\110\Tools\Binn\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Atmel\Flip 3.4.7\bin;C:\Pro
gram Files (x86)\GNU Tools ARM Embedded\4.7 2013q1\bin;C:\wxWidgets-2.9.4\includ
e\;C:\MinGW-4.7.1\bin

Here is the path from the codelite shell


C:\Users\Banaz\Documents\programs\test\test>path
PATH=C:\wxWidgets-2.9.4\lib\gcc_dll;C:\MinGW-4.7.1\bin;C:\wxWidgets-2.9.4\include

And responses from the which command

C:\Users\Banaz\Documents\programs\test\test>which g++
C:/MinGW-4.7.1/bin/g++.EXE

C:\Users\Banaz\Documents\programs\test\test>which mingw32-make
C:/MinGW-4.7.1/bin/mingw32-make.EXE


All the best

Ian

What do you have under C:\WinAVR-20100110\bin ?

Hi Eran,

The listing cygwin1.dll is all that stands but I renamed that and restarted codelite and the problem is still the same

Not sure this is related at all but, I had issues with the latest version of codelite and mingw when I had WinAVR installed.

Renaming

C:\WinAVR-20100110\utils\bin\sh.exe

to

C:\WinAVR-20100110\utils\bin\sh_nope.exe

Made it all work. No idea why.

This reminds me, try setting the environment variable SHELL in codelite:

Code: Select all

SHELL=CMD.EXE

Hi Both,

Gibbon1,

That worked, but also see below because Eran's answer it is probably more convenient if you still use WinAVR

Eran,
typo I think, SHELL=CMD.EXE worked

Many thanks to both of you

Ian
