How to use nmake to build a cpp file?

Posted on 2007-08-06
Last Modified: 2013-12-14

I am new to using the NMAKE tool. I have tried searching the net for information on how to use this tool and I was just looking at the syntax. I tried using the tool and got error "Fatal Error U1036: too many names to the left of =".

So what i want to know is how to compile/build a dll from a test file say test.cpp using a make file named say Makefile.platform ?

Any info other than the syntax would be appreciated. Thanks

    Here is a simple description on how to use nmake

    Did you see this on Micrsoft's website about Fatal Error U1036. This has something to do with your test.cpp file.
