Subject Re: Compiling Firebird using Visual Stuidio C++ Express 2005
Author lacakus
I moved a bit forward (after installing Platform SDK to VC Express).
Now I can run successfuly make_icu.bat
but when I run make_boot.bat it ends with error :

------ Build started: Project: btyacc, Configuration: Release Win32 --
LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input
file '..\..\..\temp\Win32\Release\btyacc\skeleton.obj'
Build log was saved at "file://c:\temp\Firebird-
btyacc - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)
========== Build: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped

Any advice, how to bypass it ? (FB 2.1 Beta 1)
