HX question about the misc example (DOSX)

I downloaded and installed Visual Studio 2005 C++ Express Edition (inluding Visual C++ 2003 toolkit because it's no longer available as stand alone).
Then I started the Visual Studio 2005 Command Prompt. None of the examples worked. Are then for older versions then Visual C++ 2003 toolkit?

Please see the log:

Ok, MS might have changed the behavior of its NMAKE tool. That's not unusual for this "friendly corporation". But I guess that shouldn't be a big problem. There are sources where to download an older NMAKE version, posted in this forum. See download source for NMAKE

PS: please add HX to the subject if you have a HX-related question. This makes it easier for me to recognize that you're talking to me.

Ok, will try it.

Could you port to the new version in further updates?

Good that you are telling me.

I was on your website and clicked to DOSX forum (HX). The DOSX section was elected by default. It looked like under the tag DOSX are only HX questions. Nvm, I will add next time HX in topic.
