'LINK.EXE' is not recognized as an internal or ext

By: Ramlak in Java Tutorials on 2007-06-28  

As many have asked these questions, I am adding these question answers as an article here.

I am trying to use Series 60 SDJ version 8.0 to run the example. 
When I try to use makmake btobjectexchange.mmp vc7 
I get the following error in the command prompt: 

'LINK.EXE' is not recognized as an internal or external command,  operable program or batch file. 
ERROR: failed to find version information for LINK.EXE 

Answer: Search for this LINK.EXE in your computer. It will usually be in your Microsoft .NET installation folder. 
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Vc7\bin 
Once you find this, add this folder to your 'PATH' environment variable. 

This should solve your problem.

Thanks for the reply. I added the path, but now I get a different error:

mspdb71.dll not found

Is it path problem again?



Yes its your path again.

This dll can be found in your MS .NET installation folder under the following directory.

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Common7\IDE

Just add this to your path.

hope it helped
