ntwin32.mak not found

    Question

  • I just installed Visual Studio 11 Beta. Tried to compile old projects(works fine with VS2010), received error message " ntwin32.mak" not found. I know it is part of the windows SDK but I think the SDK should be already installed with VS11, right?

    I searched this file and found it in Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0A. The new folder Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v8.0A doesn't have this file.

    Why is this file missing in new SDK?

  • Hi tfang_moe,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    According to your description, you received this error message:” FIX: Fatal Error U1052: File 'win32.mak' Not Found”

    Please have a look at this page http://support.microsoft.com/kb/133249

    This is caused by the Visual C++ setup program failing to copy WIN32.MAK to your INCLUDE directory.

    So the solution is: Copy WIN32.MAK from the \MSVC20\INCLUDE directory on the Visual C++ installation CD to your INCLUDE directory.

    Since Visual Studio 11 Beta is still a beta version, it may have many unknown problems. Thanks for understanding.

    Best regards,

  • Dear Barry,

    I am getting the same error message:” Fatal Error U1052: File 'win32.mak' Not Found” using VS 9.

    The page that you give in your post dates from 2001 and it says "This bug was corrected in Visual C++ version 5.0. " which is apparently not the case. Furthermore I cannot find WIN32.MAK on the installation CD. Is it still part of the distribution?

    Cheers,

    Marcel
