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 makepandacore.py. 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.
