I'm having an issue trying to run the makefile in the command line. When ever I run it, it states that makefile is not found, but It's been created already. I don't this for a senior project and I need help.

You are on the wrong path!!

A screen shot of your command line with the error might help.

But if you know the makefile is there (somewhere) but the compile is saying it is not found then obviously it is lookiing in the wrong place or the Makefile is in the wrong place.

Did you try to go to the folder where your makefile is(with command line) and enter make? If the makefile is present it should work. As Ralph said a screenshot of the error might help.

The make file downloaded into the notepad. I downloaded programmer's notepad and it doesn't have a make button or a run button. Any suggustions on how to fix this issue?

No but it does have a Menu bar.

Ralph, thank you. Your snide remark literally made me laugh out loud. As for the issues you are having Crystalk21, if you want help, you will have to post screen shots, copies of your files or something more than you are. It's very difficult to diagnose problems without more info.

Crystalk21, I was not trying to be snide, sorry if it came across that way, I was actually trying to be helpful.

I hope you got Programmers Notepad to make your project. If not let us know.

Ralph
