Idiot needs help :)

#1 Post by BruceN »

Problem:

When compiling, I get an error message:
An error occured: Cannot open file
D:alaska\altwin90\XBT0024: Command-line.

Background:

I'm semi-retired, haven't sold a program in several years but still support the hundred or so users I have for my POS program. Last time I changed the code and compiled was over a year ago and, as I recall, everything worked fine. Haven't changed anything in that year (well, not that I know of anyway.)

Made a small change for a user and now it won't compile. Have same setup on 2 computers (win 10 and XP) get same error on both. Looked at documentation and XBT0024 means cannot find file <filename>, but I don't understand... is D:alaska\altwin90\XBT0024 a file it's trying to open/create, or what?

Using xbase build 355 and express build 254.

Probably some simple thing in my advanced age I've overlooked :) If one of you wizards could assist, I'd be most grateful.

Thanks,
bruce

do you use XbTools :?:

if yes : have you include

Code: Select all

   #pragma library( "XBTBASE1.LIB" ) 
   #pragma library( "XBTBASE2.LIB" ) 
---

XBT0024

look here
https://doc.alaska-software.com/content ... sages.html
XBT0024 Command-line error: cannot find file <filename>
The compiler is unable to find the input file <filename>.
did you use a *.XPJ Project File :?:

XBTBASE1.LIB and XBTBASE2.LIB are in the XPJ file.

If you have Teamviewer or Skype, give me a call.

It will be easier to help if I can see the errors.
