I am trying to generate a protobuf .h and .cc from a .proto
I thought I'd use the custom build step option

In Output file name(s) I put

FullPathToOutputFolder\FileName.pb.cc;FullPathToOutputFolder\FileName.pb.h

In Command I wrote:

FullPathToProtoBuf\protoc -I FullPathToMyProtoFolder --cpp_out=FullPathToOutputFolder FullPathToTheProtoFile.proto


I get the following error

gmake: *** No rule to make target `FileName.pb.o', needed by `Name of lib'. Stop.

I looked at the subdir.mak and there is a rule for %.o so I don't understand why the error.
Also i don't understand why is it trying to compile the output of the custom build. I ask it to generate the file not compile it.

Any ideas?
