system cannot find the file specified
« on: August 19, 2019, 04:34:17 am »
Code: [Select]
Building C:\aCode\roll\output\roll.obj.
Building C:\aCode\roll\roll.exe.
*** Error: polink.exe -subsystem:console -machine:x86 -safeseh kernel32.lib advapi32.lib delayimp.lib -out:"C:\aCode\roll\roll.exe" C:\aCode\roll\output\roll.obj
*** Error: The system cannot find the file specified. 
Done.

Running 9.00.9, been using it with no issues since it's release.

Regardless of the code or it's directory, I get this error. It builds the .obj, but polink fails to find it (I guess).

Nothings changed in the Pellesc install dirs, I have no idea unless a system PATH setup has changed, but if Pelles made the directories and the compile script, wouldn't polink know where to find the obj regardless of PATH (unless it's polink.exe that can't be found...)?

Can you execute polink.exe, is it a virus scanner issue ?
May the source be with you

Thanks, Timo. Yes it was an Avira issue.

polink.exe was missing from the \bin dir.
Thanks to your hint, I checked Avira's Quarantine list, found polink listed and restored it.

I tried a compile, Avira flagged polink again, I set it to 'Allow' and ran several more compiles.

All seems to be working normally, must have been an Avira update that included new virus footprints that triggered the quarantine.

Thanks again, Timo.
