Strange Updating

Hi Jerome,
I have a little notice only - yesterday, I tried to update a SDK (from tarball) but obtained this protocol:
ecere-upd.PNG

The last sentence says " The Ecere SDK is fully built" but in fact all files of SDK stayed unchanged.
Evidently (probably :-) ) it was an accidental error, because when I repeated that update the SDK stayed "à jour "...

Best Regards,
Svat

Hi Svat,

The build log there looks fine.
The UPX notice will go away and extract.exe will get compressed if you upgrade to the latest UPX which now has 64 bit support ( http://upx.sourceforge.net/download/upx391w.zip ).

I'm not sure what you mean by "all files of SDK stayed unchanged."?
The output of make normally will go in obj/win32/
To install it to program files you'd need to do a 'mingw32-make install' in an elevated command prompt (Run as administrator).

By the way, the new 0.44.10 installer should be ready very soon, it will be packaged with MinGW-w64/TDM-GCC 4.8.1.

Regards,

-Jerome

Aaah, I still badly understood "mechanism" of this instalation, I used the install command only in the second step :oops:

It is very good message for all of us :) , thanks, I wish all success ! And can I ask you how proceeds your task in "Ecere Tao of Programming" ? It's maybe the cardinal question for me :D

Best Regards,

Hi Svat,

I have not had much chance to touch the Tao yet.

But in the coming months I hope to find time to add content to it, as well as starting to document the API.
