Re: MAMEUI64 157 compile error
01/02/15 04:23 AM


Thanks for your reply, the steps I follow to extract the various sources (in this case mame source code then mameui source code) are exactly the same as the ones you describe. In fact I've successfuly compiled mame forks for over a year and I sometimes have run into some difficulties but until then none that I couldn't beat on my own. My last compiled mame was .156 and worked fine. I tried to compile a recent source update of mameuifx that mamesick posted one week ago and this one failed to compile with the same results that plague my attempts to compile mameui64 .157. In between .156 and .157 nothing changed in my environment, at least nothing that I'm aware of.

With the sources extracted I apply a diff (step that I skip for now until my problem is solved so I'm sure this diff is not guilty) then I run a batch to start compiling. I'm not near my computer right now but I could detail the content of this file later if needed. From memory I can recall j5 PTSR=64 but there's more.

One thing that troubles me is that I can't find any reference to mingw in my OS variables environment if I don't create it manually via computer>properties>advanced stting>variable environment. Shouldn't there be one automatically created when I open a command line window and type in the proper command as directed by the install mingw tuto (easy way part)?

That being said, I must confess I failed to run the three mingw batches files as an administrator each time I attempted to reinstall mingw. Quite embarassing to me I must say as it's an obvious step I totally missed.

What I'm gonna do is erase my current mingw directory, reinstall it cleanly on a different partition, run the batches files in the correct order as an administrator and try to compile MAMEUI again. I hope I'll be able to report a success within a few hours. Thanks again for you reply I'll keep you updated as soon as posible.
