I am trying to build Perl 5.8.8 from source using nmake and I am getting the following error:
NMAKE : fatal error U1077
NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\xcopy.EXE' : return code '0x4'
My compiler is nmake from the MS Visual C++ Express Edition
I have never built Perl from source before so I figured I would give it a shot.
nmake seems to work
nmake test also seems to work
nmake install fails with the above error
I can get it to skip the error by doing the install with the /I flag, but it looks like a partial install because it only installs wperl.exe and not perl.exe.
I attached my Makefile if you guys want to take a look...
