Subject: RE: Win32 player simulator doesn't compile
From: TP Diffenbach (
Date: 2003-02-07

It's possible to compile it. It has some problems with ignoring keys.

I'll do a fuller write up tonight, but essentially, mingwin doesn't
recognize unix style paths. It needs MS Windows style, with a drive letter.

Modify your main Makefile (build/Makefile) so that line 9 is like this:

That is THISDIR should specify the directory the Makefile is in, in MS
Windows absolute path format.

Modify the Makefile in uisimulator/win32 (uisimulator/win32/Makefile) at
line 46 to set OBJDIR to the same directory in the same format:
OBJDIR = L:/cygwin/home/rockbox/rockbox-daily-20030127/build

In the same Makefile, include the MinGW include directory. Modify line 57 to
add this:

Please note that while I compiled withn MinGW, I did so from my cygwin
shell, so that this include is in cygwin format. If you're not using cygwin,
try using an MS Windows path here. If you are using cygwin, note that I
installed MinGW outside the cygwin filesystem, so I reach it through the
"mounted" path cygdrive. "i" is the MS Windows drive name (MinGW is
installed in I:\MinGW).

At line 52, append the following compiler flags:

I've attached my makefiles; you'll have to edit for directories, and figure
out which makefile is which.

No, you're right, it didn't. But the error is not the usual one(s)...
I guess until someone gets its hands on it'll stay in that state.

Has that compiled at all the last couple of months? I removed it from the
'compile status' table ages ago because of its inability to build.
