Angry Problems with WMAKE

I'm trying to compile a MAK file using WMAKE. Initially it give me following error:

Step default property 'command' = C:\Progra~1\Micros~3\vc98\bin\wmake /h /f mak\at_fxreg.mak ARX=1 ACAD15=1 OutFile=out15prodlib.txt

Error(F13): No control characters allowed in options
Error(E02): Make execution terminated

Process completed with exit code 4

Then I make a PATH environment variable in Project and provided all the necessary paths. Then it gives me the following error:

Error expanding macros in property value: c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\..... other path values

<Evaluation aborted; possible recursive macro reference>
Error updating process environment variables.

I know that there is a built-in Path variable in System, which may have a conflict with it.

Any help would be appreciated!!!

One of your macros references itself. My guess is that your PATH environment variable contains %PATH% within it (environment variables are loaded into VisBuildPro as system macros). If that's the case, you would need to modify your PATH environment variable in Windows and remove the circular reference.

Thanks Kinook
You are right. The problem was some thing like that. Actually, there was a step to modify, some values of %Path%, which was conflicting + the MAK was also using an MIF file for its references, which was not in Path.

I really appreciate ur concern.
Thanks again
