I am having trouble setting up allegro for vs.net 2003. I did the fix.bat msvc7 after changing the pathnames to dos style( i think i did this right anyway). After that is says run "make", which I try but it does nothing. What am I doing wrong?

Define "does nothing".

Also, you don't need to necessarily convert your paths by hand. Running this sequence should work:


  1. vsvars32
  2. SET PATH=C:\MinGW\bin;%PATH%
  3. fix.bat msvc7 --msvcpaths
  4. make all
  5. make installall


You might need to replace "make" with "mingw32-make".

Alternatively, you can just download a binary for MSVC 7 from Allegro.cc.

Maybe I missed something. I was just following the readme stuff for msvc setup. It was kind of confusing the way it was written, the instructional steps. I didn't know I needed MinGW I just thought they were adding some optional stuff in there. I assumed I just typed "make" from the allegro dir but that just says:

'make' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

So, I guess I misread it. I'm gonna try one of those binaries you linked. I'll let you know how it goes.
