Max 5.1.1 SDK Linker error

Jul 05 2010 | 7:57 pm

I downloaded the SDK yesterday and proceeded to run up some of the included test projects. Compiles fine, however I am getting failed builds, due to a linker error (below):

Ld build/UninstalledProducts/simplemax.mxo/Contents/MacOS/simplemax normal i386

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
Command /Developer/usr/bin/gcc-4.0 failed with exit code 1

I am doing everything the documentation is telling me, and haven’t made any changes to the config.

Mac OS 10.6.4 / Max SDK 5.1.1 / XCode 3.2.2 (with 10.4u SDK).

This error looks a bit strange. It says that it cannot find "simplemax.o" in the linker stage, but "simplemax.o" is what Xcode itself should have just produced it it had compiled successfully. Are you certain that it really compiled?

I wonder if it is the "SDK’s" folder being named with the ‘ character in the path(?). That character can cause a lot of grief when it is in a path or file name.

Thanks, that has fixed the problem!
