Is 'nmake' anywhere to be found in your path ?
If so, try removing it and see if that makes any difference.

(Just enter nmake /? at the command prompt to check whether nmake is in the path.)

Cheers,

    No nmake to be found on this system. I searched my entire C: drive and only found that .lnk file, and I think that is some kind of saved search when I did a search for "nmake" in Explorer.

    C:\ > dir nmake*.* /s Volume in drive C has no label. Volume Serial Number is C85E-7FA1 Directory of C:\Users\myid\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent 2012-02-16 14:02 11,688 nmake.lnk 1 File(s) 11,688 bytes Total Files Listed: 1 File(s) 11,688 bytes 0 Dir(s) 89,554,558,976 bytes free C:\

    The C: drive is my only local disk. My D: drive is the DVD, and I have a network drive with nothing but two data files in it.

    Also, after firing up my command window, I trim the PATH down manually to just Strawberry Perl.

    C:\ > echo %PATH% C:\strawberry\c\bin;C:\strawberry\perl\site\bin;C:\strawberry\perl\bin C:\ > nmake /? 'nmake' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

    Even with the complete PATH, I still don't have nmake in my path.

    C:\strawberry > nmake /? 'nmake' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. C:\strawberry > echo %PATH% C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\Sys +tem32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Windows\System32\Empirum;C:\P rogram Files\Hummingbird\Connectivity\11.00\Accessories\;;C:\Program F +iles\SlikSvn\bin\;C:\Program Files\QuickTime\QTSystem\;C:\stra wberry\c\bin;C:\strawberry\perl\site\bin;C:\strawberry\perl\bin;C:\str +awberry\c\bin;C:\strawberry\perl\site\bin;C:\strawberry\perl\b in;C:\Program Files\PuTTY;C:\Users\jmm6ry\bin;C:\Program Files\GnuWin3 +2\bin

    So at this point, there must be some other reason for my make file getting created for nmake instead of dmake.
