'MPLAB Example Bombed'

  I'm new to MPLAB and going over the examples in
the latest Users Guide (downloaded last week) and
had an apparent linker failure for the example given
in section 4.6, using multiple source files.  The files
are the one supplied in MPLAB.  The build results
window reads:

Building EXAMPLE.HEX...

Compiling EXAMPLE.ASM:
Command line: "C:\MPLAB\MPASMWIN.EXE /e+ /l+ /x- /w0 /c+ /p16F84 /o+ /q
C:\MPLAB\EXAMPLE\EXAMPLE.ASM"

Compiling EXAMPLE2.ASM:
Command line: "C:\MPLAB\MPASMWIN.EXE /e+ /l+ /x- /w0 /c+ /p16F84 /o+ /q
C:\MPLAB\EXAMPLE\EXAMPLE2.ASM"

Linking:
Command line: "C:\MPLAB\MPLINK.EXE /o EXAMPLE.HEX EXAMPLE.O EXAMPLE2.O
16F84.LKR "
this is a Windows NT character-mode executable

MPLAB is unable to find output file "EXAMPLE.HEX".

Build failed.

  What happened and how do I correct it?

Thanks,

John-

Clearly that is the clue.  I can't help directly, but I just wanted you to
know you aren't being ignored.  I assume you are using Windows 95?  It
looks as if W95 thinks MPLINK.EXE is an NT character-mode executable, but
I can't imagine why.  MPLINK.EXE is actually a DOS executable (and
therefore automatically character-mode).

Which version of MPLAB are you using?  It should be 4.12.  And what is the
size and date of your MPLINK.EXE?  Mine is 65K and dated 14th May 99,
10:53.

Hmmm.... still thinking.

I presume that you are using Win 3.11?

Change the configuration to run MPLINKD.EXE instead and it should work
(it's in something like "installed languages" or "installed programs"
from memory. I beleive, again from memory, that you also need to change
from "windowed" to "command line".
