Qt configure not creating checksdk.exe as it should
My attempt to build Qt for an embedded WinCE app fails. My command line is this:
configure -platform win32-msvc2008 -xplatform wince60standard-armv4i-msvc2008 -nomake demos -nomake examples
This produces many lines of "Reading C:/Qt/Qt4.8.4/src/blah blah blah", all with no errors. After that comes execution of MS Program Maintenance Utility: first execution is a cd bootstrap\ && .... nmake.exe ... , generating no error.
The second execution is nmake.exe again, with a fully qualified path name.
The third execution is cl, with all the options, #define options, etc. This is where the first error is reported: Cannot open include file: Stddef.h
Of course, the file exists, but the path environment variable is not set up correctly. Looking back, I see that setcepaths did not run correctly, because checksdk.exe does not exist. Here is the real problem, I think.
Somewhere on the forum, I saw that checksdk.exe is generated during the configure step. Apparently, that's not happening, although configure output shows no sign of failure to make that.
I'm confused. I did read the instructions, which say to run configure then setcepaths, in that order, with other stuff in between. If those paths are needed to make configure go, then it seems circular. Others before me have succeeded, so it is something I am doing wrong, but I'm not seeing it.
Does anyone have suggestions for what I should do next to clean this up?
