NDS Visual Studio Make file Build Project Error

Post icon  Posted 12 June 2009 - 09:13 PM

Hi, I'm working on a Nintendo DS game (or trying to) using devkitPro and Palib. I can build and run the palib examples that come with palib in an emulator just fine, so I can make projects and test them out.

I then read and followed verbatim the following tutorial palib day 1 tutorial

However if I follow that as I did I get the error below

Error result 255 returned from 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe'.

So I then followed this tutorial Using devkitARM and libnds w/ Visual Studios

However upon completing that project with either an existing project, or creating a completely new empty make file project in Visual Studios 2008 I get the same error.

Error result 255 returned from 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe'.

Do I have to customize the build rules in visual studios and change compilers or something? I'm completely lost and way out frustrated with this problem any help is much appreciated.

Also, so people don't say it's a piece of code. I get both errors if there is source code from an existing example, or if I create an empty project for a Make Project.

And finally if I try to clean or rebuild I get the following error below.

Project : error PRJ0019: A tool returned an error code from "Performing Makefile project actions"

thanks in advance,
