Hi guys, just downloaded and setup winARM so I can play with some
hardware I'm building around an LPC2103 unit.....
Anyway just to verify my installation and get me started I tried to
build some of the examples but.....
mkdir falls on it's ass with the usual microsoft "this program has
crashed, do you want to waste bandwidth and 'notify' microsoft" pop-up.
I can work around this by making the .dep folder manually, just wondered
if there was a beter fix/work around for this?
Cheers,
Sam

I have not seen a problem like this before and did not receive a report
search your harddisc (or just the directorys mentioned in in
PATH-environment-variable) for mkdir.exe. There is a mkdir.exe included
in WinARM. Can you verify that this is the one that gets used (rename
all but the mkdir.exe in WinARM/utils/bin and retry).

Hi Martin,
As far as I can see I only have one exe on the machine (let alone on the
path) called mkdir.exe
I have a stack dump that I could mail to you if you want?  (if so, lmk
on s.clayton (at) hud.ac.uk )

Sorry, I didn't report it as a bug or anything as I wasn't sure it was a
bug, maybe just something strange on my system - I'm running XP PRO SP
II on an old IBM laptop.

Cheers,
Sam
