Having a problem compiling the XIS GRF.

Post by Gadg8eer »

I'm trying to compile the source code for XIS (Extreme Industry Set) on Windows 10, but I'm having trouble with using the "make" command in bash.

Code: Select all

bash -c "make -b -r -R"

Code: Select all

make: execvp: python3.6: Permission denied
make: *** [Makefile:78: docs] Error 127
I'm trying to use a batch file to compile XIS for testing purposes but this error is preventing me from doing so and google turned up nothing about how to fix it. Anyone know what the problem might be?

Sounds like you don't have the right to execute python. If it is not an installation issue, then maybe a permissions error with the directories you are working in?

In order to analyse such errors it usually needs the complete error log, including relevant paths etc.

I can't help you here unfortunately, I use Linux to compile XIS and anything Python-related

Well, considering that you've decided to use some of the ECS graphics, I suppose I'll just give up on trying to make an ECS-compatible version of XIS. Thanks for letting me know that I'd need Linux.

Any chance you can tell me how to get an error log?
