Cannot Compile Tcl/Tk for Windows
I'm trying to compile / build Tcl/Tk 8.4.14 on Windows platform.
I have installed Visual Studio .Net 2005, Microsoft Platform SDK - Windows Server 2003 edition, and .Net Framework SDK 2.0. On a Windows XP SP2 environment.
I unzipped Tcl/Tk source code, went to win directory, and ran nmake command to build source code distribution in the following way:
nmake -f makefile.vc release
When try to run nmake, following error occurs:
Finished generating code
if exist .\Release_i386_VC8\tcl84.dll.manifest mt -nologo -manifest .\Re
Nothing to do!
Modes of operation:
-hashupdate Update hashes of member files
-makecdfs Generate CDF files to make catalogs
-verbose Disply piles of debugging information
-manifest <foo.man> The name of the manifest to work with
Normal usage: mt.exe -hashupdate -makecdfs -manifest foo.man
NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'if' : return code '0x1'
It seems to be a Manifest Tool error. I don't know if provided make file isn't compatible with Visual C++ compiler 8.0.
I don't know if is necessary to use other Visual C++ compiler version (Such as 5.0 or 6.0). I need to know how to solve this error to continue to install Tcl/Tk.
I appreciate some help.
