Thanks, Johnoel (and also Ian). I got the latest version of ADMB from your
link at




Then I carefully followed your latest instructions  at




where I even used your specified path C:\admb. Unfortunately, "make" stills
fails with the final commands shown below:


******* Final commands

g++ -c -O3 -Wall -DSAFE_ALL -D__GNUDOS__ -Dlinux -D__SPDLL__ -DUSE_LAPLACE

build\dist\include -o..\build\objects\dist\saflp-linad99-xgradclc.obj


g++ -c -O3 -Wall -DOPT_LIB -D__GNUDOS__ -Dlinux -D__SPDLL__ -DUSE_LAPLACE

uild\dist\include -o..\build\objects\dist\optlp-nh99-adsleep.obj


g++ -c -O3 -Wall -DOPT_LIB -D__GNUDOS__ -Dlinux -D__SPDLL__ -DUSE_LAPLACE

uild\dist\include -o..\build\objects\dist\optlp-nh99-amoeba.obj

g++ -c -O3 -Wall -DOPT_LIB -D__GNUDOS__ -Dlinux -D__SPDLL__ -DUSE_LAPLACE

uild\dist\include -DADMB_VERSION=11.1 -DADMB_REVISION=Unversioned directory

\build\objects\dist\optlp-nh99-banner.obj nh99\banner.cpp

g++: error: directory: No such file or directory

make[1]: *** [..\build\objects\dist\optlp-nh99-banner.obj] Error 1

make[1]: Leaving directory `C:/admb/src'

make: *** [g++-all] Error 2

******* End final commands


This time the procedure got one step beyond amoeba.cpp, but failed at
banner.cpp. I checked to verify that "banner.cpp" actually exists in the
directory C:\admb\src\nh99; it does. I can't understand how dozens (or
hundreds?) of commands can work fine, but then fail at this particular step.


Ian, thanks for your offer to run tests. If you have a chance, I'd very much
like to know if you get this same error when you follow the same steps that
I did.


Best wishes,

Thank you all for testing and providing feedback.  I was able to duplicate
and resolve the issue.

The problem was user system PATH having sh.exe or bash.exe in it.  This
caused the build files 

to use Unix commands like cp or rm instead of copy or del for Windows.  The
fixes have been 

committed to version control.  Please update your copy and test the
procedures in




As always, thank you for providing feedback.
