Wow ... I feel stupid now. I knew it was case sensitive, but not sure why I wasn't typing it that way. Especially since I did compile ume properly. Let's chalk it up to only getting 3 hours sleep last night smile

Anyone having this problem with msc96?

C:\mingw\mess>make TARGET=mess OSD=winui
Generating i8x9x source file...
process_begin: CreateProcess(NULL, python src/emu/cpu/mcs96/mcs96make.py mcs96 src/emu/cpu/mcs96/mcs96ops.lst obj/winui/
emu/cpu/mcs96/mcs96.inc, ...) failed.
make (e=2): The system cannot find the file specified.
make: *** [obj/winui/emu/cpu/mcs96/mcs96.inc] Error 2

I'm using the mingw64-w32 package with gcc 4.4.7 which is the most recent package that work on my system.

Hmmm, unless I am misreading the source code, there are several files missing from the repository: i8x9x.inc, i8xc196.inc, and mcs96.inc.

You're missing a non-venomous snake.

Quick, let's see how long it takes him to read what's been posted on the MAME website for 11 days now.

It can be, your compiler doesn´t find the python folder to create ".inc" files.
Does it works if you compile the standard MESS (windows) version?
You make a clean compile?

The "non-venomous snake" is python, yes, and it comes with the latest tools. They also work fine on XP SP3 (32-bit), I tried that successfully. If they don't, then something's wrong with your computer and/or setup.

I have the same problem with the new tools that was discussed above and never resolved as far as I can tell. My WinXP SP3 system just does not like gcc 4.6.3. Immediately after creating the obj directories, I get errors with either cc1.exe or cc1plus.exe.

make TARGET=mess
Compiling src/osd/windows/vconv.c...
cc1.exe: internal compiler error: Illegal instruction
Please submit a full bug report,
with preprocessed source if appropriate.
See <http://gcc.gnu.org/bugs.html> for instructions.
make: *** [obj/windows/osd/windows/vconv.o] Error 1

OR

make TARGET=mess OSD=winui
Compiling src/build/file2str.c...
cc1plus.exe: internal compiler error: Illegal instruction
Please submit a full bug report,
with preprocessed source if appropriate.
See <http://gcc.gnu.org/bugs.html> for instructions.
make: *** [obj/winui/build/file2str.o] Error 1

So now I'm blocked by either Python or gcc 4.6.3 from compiling MESS.

Ooh. Is that a system with an AMD or other unusual processor? (Cyrix? Intel Atom?)

Also, is there some reason you are unable to upgrade to Windows 7?

I have the very same problem on my automatic build host:

make all TARGET=mess
mkdir.exe -p obj/windows
...
mkdir.exe -p obj/windows/tools
Compiling src/osd/windows/vconv.c...
cc1.exe: internal compiler error: Illegal instruction
Please submit a full bug report,
with preprocessed source if appropriate.
See <http://gcc.gnu.org/bugs.html> for instructions.
make: *** [obj/windows/osd/windows/vconv.o] Error 1

Could it be related to something like this perhaps?

Just for curiosity I tried

Code:
objdump -d C:\mingw64-w32\libexec\gcc\i686-w64-mingw32\4.6.3\cc1.exe > \Tmp\cc1-exe-objdump.txt

... and I found a lot of CMOVxx instructions that are likely to be missing in old processors (see here).
