I put the following lines in the System Path:

C:\WinARM\utils\bin;C:\WinARM\bin;

I cross check the system path by going typing make in the command prompt
and it recognises ( make.exe : please give make parameters )
When I type arm-elf-gcc on the command prompt it throws an error
cygwin1.dll not found. I saw on the website that the WInARM does not
depend on cygwin or mingw. Then why do I get this error ?

Also
From the pn.exe i select one of hte project and run make all
I get the following error.
make.exe: *** [gccversion] Error -1073741515

> Process Exit Code: 2
> Time Taken: 00:01

I have been struggling for the past 2 days  for this silly problem . Any
help would be a boon..

Thanks

Examine which EXE depends from cygwin1.dll with
http://www.ucware.com/apev/how-to-view-dll-dependencies.htm

Did you try another PATH too?
C:\WinARM\bin;C:\WinARM\utils\bin;

Does it matter if i write,
C:\WinARM\bin;C:\WinARM\utils\bin;
or
C:\WinARM\utils\bin;C:\WinARM\bin;

I think it should not be a problem. Nevertheless, I interchanged it
found the same problem. Regarding cygwin1.dll, I entered the cygwin/bin
Path in the PATH file and it works. But AFAIK WINArm does not depend on
cygwin. It is a standalone ! Do I need anything from Keil or other
properitary companies to evade this error.

Are you sure that no other arm-elf cross-compiler or make-utility is
installed and entries for for this are in the search path? GNUARM comes
in mind since as far as I know the GNUARM-binaries depend on cygwin
(havn't used GNUARM since more than a year).
Use the Windows "find file": Start->Search->Files and Folders, search
for make.exe and arm-elf-gcc.exe. If you find files with these names in
other folders you may rename these folders so c:\winarm\utils\bin and
c:\winarm\bin are the only folders with the toolchains/utils "exe"s.

Hi

I cant explain what fixed my problem, but I did the following after
Martins mail. found make.exe in the whole disk. and found 4 occasions ..
GNUARM/bin, DevCPP/bin,
Hitex/bin, cygwin/bin. Renamed all of them to _bin though I was sure,
there were no path in the system path. and it did not work. I got the
same problem as before. Then I found something called
c:\windows\prefetch\make-blahblah.exe and renamed those too.. I
retarted.. ! Everything works now.. I made everything as good as
before... and it still runs ..!!!

Thanks Martin, Stefan though for quick replies.
