Re: trying to use gmake with XP

This shows that the command that 'make' is running is exiting with error
139. This is not a problem with make itself. At a guess, the compiler that
you are using is buggy - the messages about problems with CreateProcess
are not from 'make', so I am guessing they are being printed by the
compiler. CreateProcess is a Windows function which (surprise) creates a
new process. I have no idea what error 193 means in this context.

Potential solutions:

A. Edit your Makefile to use a different command, which does not exit with
error status 193, as the current command does; or

B. Add '|| true' or something similar to the line in your makefile which
runs the program which exits with status 193, so that when the program
does that, the error is ignored and make will continue as if the error had
not happened. However, I am sure the error is there for a reason, and you
do not want to ignore it; or

C. Cause the command not to exit with error status 193. How to
do that depends on the command - you may need to debug the compiler :-(

Please do not ask me for further help on this. I have never heard of the
compiler you are using before, and I do not use GNU Make on Windows, so I
am of no further help to you at all. Malheureusement, je ne peux pas
t'aider plus - s'il vous plait, ne pas reponder avec plusiers questions.

Also, I do not believe anyone on this list can help you any further, since
this is not an issue with GNU Make - I suggest you talk to whoever wrote
the program which is exiting with an error. It looks like it is broken.

Good luck,
