• I'm trying to build Qt and when I run the configure step, I get an error:

@[C:\qtbld\qt5]configure -developer-build -opensource -nomake examples -nomake tests -confirm-license -skip qtwebkit-examples

• cd qtbase
• C:\qtbld\qt5\qtbase\configure.bat -top-level -developer-build -opensource -nomake examples -nomake tests -confirm-license -skip qtwebkit-examples
Please wait while bootstrapping configure ...
<srcbase> = C:/qtbld/qt5/qtbase
<outbase> = C:/qtbld/qt5/qtbase

Microsoft (R) Program Maintenance Utility Version 9.00.30729.01

NMAKE : fatal error U1073: don't know how to make 'C:\qtbld\qt5\qtbasetools\configure\main.cpp'
Stop.

There is, in fact, no qtbasetools folder. There is a qtbase.

Yes, I have run perl init-repository successfully.

Any ideas?

• I don't know what happened here, but it must be

@
qtbase\tools

• You don't need lines #2 and #3 -- I'm guessing that those are the source of your problem. Just call configure.bat and nmake in C:\qtbld\qt5

(You'll need to clean your source tree before re-configuring + building)

• My bad - I was using JPSoft's Take Command, a cmd.exe replacement (a really good one, btw) and it seems the fancy configure script confuses it in some way. Using the Win7.1 SDK cmd script works fine.
