Q61619: /MAKE Option Is Invalid with NMAKE
Article: Q61619 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.11 | 1.11 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | docerr | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 25-MAY-1990 On Page 43 of the "Microsoft C Reference" manual for version 6.00, NMAKE is described as being upwardly compatible with the earlier MAKE utility through the use of the /MAKE option. Since NMAKE does not support the /MAKE option, it produces the error "U1065: Invalid option 'm'." To work around this problem, you can either use the earlier MAKE utility, or use a pseudo-target on the first line of your make file. The pseudo-target line should read as follows: ALL: [target name.exe/obj] For more information about the differences between MAKE and NMAKE, see Section 6.9 of the "Microsoft C Advanced Programming Techniques" manual for version 6.00.
