no feedback gotten on this, it works when set with the new preference.

if you have SVN trunk of both the core libraries and ProjectCenter, you should be able to build and run things in PC once you set the executable path by using the standard file browser.
Please give us some feedback, the next release of project center shall be usable on windows!

have you tried SVN trunk of ProjectCenter?
It has the option to set the make path and solve your problem at the root.

In the upcoming version of ProjectCenter I have implemented a way to select the make executable under windows. I think all guessowrk will never be really correct. Also, even on unix, you might have different versions of make lying around.

For the time being, you can insert something like

and it should work afterwards.

(the same holds true for gdb, although the upcoming integrated debugger won't work on windows)

In my own apps I prefer system() and popen() over NSTask to have an environment identical to an interactive shell.

I'm not sure the best way to solve this. It might be interesting to add support in NSFileManager and NSTask (perhaps other places?) to look for files in the mingw directory space if an absolute path is specified, but the path is not a fully qualified Windows path (with drive designation).

Steps to reproduce:

1. Install the current set of Windows installers:

- gnustep-system-0.22.0
- gnustep-core-0.22.0
- gnustep-devel-1.0.0
- SystemPreferences-
- gorm-1.2.8
- ProjectCenter-0.5.0

2. Launch ProjectCenter, create an application from the template and hit the Build button.

3. In the upcoming build window, hit Build again.

Expected result:

The application is built (at 2., actually).

Actual result:

ProjectCenter shows an error message "Build terminated. Build tool not found. File "/usr/bin/make" not found"


The error message is correct. Make is to be found in C:\GNUstep\bin\make.exe. This mismatch shouldn't happen on a virgin, default install.

BTW: Where would I set make's location? ProjectCenter doesn't appear to have such an option.
