Sorry for the double post but I put this question before in the CDT forum but I didn´t get any answer.|
In spite that Autotools documentation says that Autotools (Autotools support for CDT (Incubation)) was developed to work only in Linux/Unix enviroment, I want to know if someone has been able to configure this plug-in in Windows.
I am using Eclipse in Windows XP and MinGW/Msys and some features work well but some not, for example:
If I try "Invoke Autoconf" option in the Eclipse environment in my project, nothing happens but if I try "autoconf" command in the Msys shell-command this works well.
If my project is already configured (aclocal ->autoconf ->automake)
and then try "Reconfigure Project" option I get the following messages
Generating Makefile in build directory: D:/workspace/Prueba

Configuration failed with error
The same command works well in Msys shell
