We call it a Klassiker!

Hi folks,

here's a Sysgen error people (still) tend to come across:
NMAKE : fatal error U1073: don't know how to make 'E:\WINCE500\...\component.lib'

The cause for this is very often due to a missing Windows CE Update when changing configuration, i.e. from ARMV4I to x86. So if you do come across this error check the Updates you have registered on your computer. An easy way to do this is via ceqfecheck.exe which you will find in your Windows System32 Directory, e.g. C:\WINDOWS\system32\ceqfecheck\. You can't find it? Well don't worry, this tool is not part of the standard Windows CE Installation; it is installed via any QFE.

BTW: "We call it a Klassiker." is a quote from Franz Beckenbauer before the England-Germany football Worldcup qualification game on September 1, 2001 in Munich - which England won 5-1!

So long and thanks for all the fish.
