nmake problem

Post by Paavo Makela,Vaasa Finla » Fri, 14 Jul 2000 04:00:00

I'm using MS Visual C++ 5 product with RenderMan on NT platform.
When I start the Flexlm license server, everything goes fine and
Renderman is functioning properly. But if I try to make any of the
tutorial chapter scenes the make -process does not finish; it
complains that there is an internal error. This is very odd.
And what's even more odd is that when I shut off the Flexlm
license server, the make goes fine but stops at the obvious: no
license for prman.

I could not find any explanation in the MS C++ documentation on
NMAKE and CL error codes.

This problem is very annoying as it effectively makes prman a bit

I get the error message.

'$(EXES)' expands to nothing

my Makefile.win is
