I'm trying to get IKVM to build (see this question) but now have encountered a problem not having to do with IKVM so I'm opening up a new question:
When running nant on the IKVM directory with the Visual Studio 2008 Command Prompt (from the Start Menu), I get the following error:
ikvm-native-win32: [cl] Compiling 2 files to C:\ikvm-0.36.0.11\native\Release'. [cl] jni.c [cl] os.c [cl] C:\ikvm-0.36.0.11\native\os.c(25) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'windows.h': No such file or directory [cl] Generating Code... BUILD FAILED C:\ikvm-0.36.0.11\native\native.build(17,10): External Program Failed: cl (return code was 2)
I have the Platform SDK installed. What am I missing? I'm sure it's something simple...
Edit #1 I just checked - I do have the directory containing windows.h on the Path. Edit #2 Found the answer (see my answer below): The directory containing windows.h needed to be in the "Include" path variable.
OK here is the answer I ended up finding: rather than being on the Path, the directory with windows.h (in my case, C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\Include) needed to be set in the Include environment variable.
By the way, create environment variable %LIB%, meaning the same - path to all SDKs lib directories
