Has anybody been able to get the compiler support work with Windows version of Vedit?
I have been trying it since the first Vedit Windows version V5.0 was published, but with no success. I did use the compiler support with DOS version for many years, and it worked fine, but Windows version simply refuses to work.
I have been using NT4 and Windows 2000, with IAR and Tasking C cross compilers.
If I try "Compile", I get error message "No vcs.tmp error/output file created or cannot run compiler/tool".
If I try "Make", the computer does something for a while and then stops and nothing else happens. If I then try "Examine errors", I get error message "No errors available (no vcs.tmp file)".
I have made the necessary .vcs file.
I have edited the compile.cnf to use this compiler.
The PATH and all necessary environment variables have been set.
I have deliberately made some errors in the program to test the
I noticed that when the compiler is run, the compiler command is displayed at the bottom of the screen. At the end of this line, there is text " > vcs.tmp". However, I have changed that in my cc88.vdm into ">& vcs.tmp", in order to reroute stderr to a file, too. I wonder why my change does not have effect?
I made a BAT file ccc.bat that runs the compiler and reroutes the output to a file with ">& vcs.tmp". When I run this bat file from DOS command prompt, the compiler runs ok and vcs.tmp file is created. When I run it from Vedit with "Misc" -> "Save and run programs", the DOS window opens briefly and closes, but no vcs.tmp file is created.
