Compiling on windows7 64 bit gave me an error about not being able to find the missing manifest embeder exe, mt.exe. I found this file on my system in “C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\bin” and by adding

AddToPathEnv("Path",    "C:\\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\\Windows\\v6.0A\\bin") 

to SetupVisualStudioEnviro in While this is not a satisfactory fix, this particular include is required on my system. Is this local to my system or does makepanda need to be updated to reflect this?

this is on latest cvs, directx sdk august 2009, visual studio 2008, and Microsoft Server 2003 R2 Platform SDK installed.

The best thing is usually to invoke makepanda from the Visual Studio 2008 Command Prompt. Makepanda has the ability to automatically read it’s environment settings in case it can’t find stuff by itself.
