BusBuild can't launch nmake


Hello, all!
Help me, please:

I'm working with JDE OneWorld, B7333. When I try to build business function, BusBuild gives me this text:

Generating Makefile: C:\Program Files\JDEdwards\B7\PD7333\obj\CALLEXCL.mak
Makefile generated.

Building business functions.


Failed to launch Nmake

************Build Finished************

CALLEXCL.dll - 0 error(s), 0 warning(s): Build failed. Restored previous dll.

Directories in jde.ini are correct and nmake.exe exists in necessary place. Makefile generates. What it can be? What I'm doing wrong?

i think there could be a compatibility problem with the version of vc++ you are using. try to set your vc++ version configuration in the ini file correctly or check VC++ installation...


Thank you for your reply! I'm using VC++ 6.0, and in my ini is used the following text:
STDLIBDIR=C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\lib
INCLUDES=C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\include;$(SYSTEM)\include;$(SYSTEM)\cg;$(APP)\include;$(SYSTEM)\includev
LIBS=C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\lib;$(SYSTEM)\lib32;$(APP)\lib32;$(SYSTEM)\libv32
MAKEDIR=C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\bin;C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\Common\MSDev98\Bin;
All pathes are correct. Is something wrong?
Check your system environment variables are set. Goto a command prompt and type "set" to show your variables also try typing CL which should return the complier.


When I run nmake from the command prompt with the makefile which was generated by BusBuild, it works and make all of the necessary files. But when I run BusBuild, it gives me an error :(
