#131 closed enhancement (fixed)

Switch to OpenWatcom wrc.exe

Priority: major Milestone: Release_3.9

Description (last modified by Steven Levine)

We are still using the IBM rc.exe because the OpenWatcom? v1.6 wrc.exe is broken. It fails to copy the resident names table and the iterated pages. It also fails to generate usable .res files.

as of 9/29 wrc.exe no longer destroys the bldlevel info, but it still does not generate working .res files with

wrc -r -zm -idll fm3res.rc

or with

wrc -r -idll fm3res.rc

This applies to bth wrc 1.7 and 1.8a.

The -zm allows for debugging the issue using Martin Lafaix's rdc.cmd (or a modified version)

The attached wrc.exe should generate working fm/2 builds. At least it works for me.

If you install OpenWatcom? 1.7a, be sure to reinstall the attached wrc.exe. The fix should make it into OpenWatcom? 1.8, but this is up to the maintainers.
