after a bit of research i came across some article stating you need something like cygwin or gnuwin32 in order to use the make command in windows
every other article talking about the make command describes how to use it under linux, so obviously windows doesn't have this functionality
you can use cygwin: http://www.cygwin.com/
or you can use make for windows: http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/make.htm
i didn't try it yet as i was busy with my actual job, but after all the reading i've done about this i am sure this solves the problem, if not then i will just switch to my linux pc
does your solution basically avoid the use of the 'make' command?
thank you for your reply
