Ref: GNU make version 3.81 downloaded file "ming32w-make-3.81-20080326-src.tar.gz 1.6MB
My computer =HP Pavilion notebook Div9540 using Windows Vista Home Premium (US english version) +
Microsoft Internet Explorer version 8.
A couple of weeks ago I had a chance to download the OpenOffice.org3 suite (also english version). All went fine.
Recently in order to improve the programming possibilities of OpenOffice.org3 I have downloaded OpenOffice.org_3.1:SDK (also in english).
Upon reading the SDK install online instructions, namely, to click on the SDK file " setsdkenv_windows" which I did and confirmed the first question (the path of OpenOffice.org_3.1_SDF program) which went OK and to confirm the parth of OpenOffice.org3 which also went OK.
However, a third question of the windows command line asked the following:
"ENTER GNU make tool directory" which I did several times and to my great regret I always get on the screen the same answer saying the file does not exist and the screen keeps on asking again and again ENTER GNU make tool directory and I keep on getting the same screen answer "the file does not exist" !!!!
In order to test and make sure the GNU make file exists on my computer, I opened the windows command line and entered the full path of the GNU make on my c:\drive and the screen confirmed the file exists and showed following answer:
"using : setsdkenv_windows.bat[options]
--force-configure: force a new configuration of your SDK environment .
Alternatively ou can edit your SDK environment script directly:
-h, --help : print this help and exist " . end of screen message.
Upon reading the downloaded GNU make manual, I noticed the GNU make can encounter some bug which probably prevents the
setsdkenv_windows to recognize the GNU make file on my computer.
Also the OpenOffice.org Developer manual mentions the possibility of GNU make bugs and the difficulty when using Windows.
Would extremely appreciate your valuable comments how to solve the problem and finally get the OpenOffice.org_3.1_SDK environment to open and start working. I tried the internet support of OpenOffice.org and Sun Microsystem and forums etc and could not find an article or instructions how to solve this issue. Funny, all othe programs /software on my computer are working fine and are continuously updated. I aslo have Norton Internet Security.
I thank you for your attention and hope to hear from you soon.
