Re: Question about link.exe?

I found that setting the complier and linker (all the tools, actually) to the full path is the most reliable means to ensure the correct executables are picked up.


CC = full_path_to_ds_8_bin/cl.exe
LINK = full_path_to_ds_8_bin/link.exe

you can use the registered environment variables for DS to build the full path up. (can't remember the name right now, I'm at home).

I am running on Vista, and what I am doing is I open up a Dev Studio 2008 command shell. From that command shell I launch cygwin/bash... Things like cl.exe are inherited from the first shell I've opened in the bash environment. What I want is link to be the path that is found under my BIN directory of my DevStudio install. However possibily because they're the same name when I query link, or try and use it to make a dll. Bash thinks I am using link to make a symbolic link as opposed to a dll.

Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.
