after build, got few error and warnings

this a new thread on previous topic, since there was a wast discussion that’s why I thought to start new thread to resolve my problem.

when I did a “build” one subdirectory and two files had been created

objchk_wxp_x86/i386/_objects.mac

an “err” file

errors in directory f:\winddk\6001.18002\src\mydrivers\helloworld

I have to think that you should have figured out what this problem is (a) by
analogy to what your previous problem was, and (b) by paying attention to
the explicit solutions that people have already given you.

Bottom line: I suggest that you consult a career counselor to help you
identify why you are having continued problems with basic concepts – in
this case, rules about file naming and how to use the “rename” command. If
the problem is language, your counselor may be able to recommend English
language instruction to get you to the level of proficiency you need in
computer science. If the problem lies elsewhere, perhaps you should find
another line of work. At present, you don’t have the skills to succeed as a
driver programmer. I also suspect that you’re not going to be finding much
additional help on this list. (Understand that I am not the moderator of
this list and have no power to kick you off. I’m just making a prediction
that most people here will now lose patience with you.)

In other words, you decided that answers may change to suit you if you start a new thread…

@ Walter Oney

I was able to rename those files(just enclosed their names inside “”) before I had done a “build” again, without any extension as English is not my problem. I can justify this by the result i did get when i again did a “dir” in that directory because now the files enlisted with their name and without any extension.
I am also surprised why this fatal error is coming many times even though the file named “makefile” is there.
since this is my first and a very basic program in driver development that’s why I am not very much familiar about these sort of errors(except those described very clearly as this fatal error) ;

When I install the WDK I don’t include the samples for the areas I’m
not interested in such as printers and video. However, a quick scan
underneath my SRC directory shows that there are over 150 samples.

Have you looked in any of these directories to give yourself a clue ?

And we don’t mean using Explorer to look, we mean within the command
prompt using basic commands such as “cd”, “dir” and “copy”.

The samples are there to be studied, used as project boilerplates and
modified. What Walter and others are expressly annoyed about is that
you’ve so far shown no initiative or inclination to go and do even
the most basic of work and learning on your own. Newbies are
welcomed and helped so long as they are prepared to show some
aptitude. We may be entirely wrong but the impression you give so
far is that you have no aptitude and are in the wrong career.

Please build some small WDK sample driver, such as
src\general\ioctl\sys, without changing a single bit there:

cd /d \src\general\ioctl\sys
BLD

If it won’t build, then either the WDK setup has not been done
successfully (maybe the downloaded ISO file is broken),
or you have something on your system that is not compatible
with WDK tools. It happens. Try to download WDK again
and install on another machine.

Until the build works properly on the WDK samples, don’t try to compile
your stuff. Fix the problem first.

Santosh,

Here is a skeleton load/unload sample for you to study:

http://www.blocksoft.co.uk/samples/hlowrld.zip

It builds without issue, if you still have problems, then i’m not sure why.
