Things that can go wrong when compiling with rntcl and VC6: 
 
You run init_nt but nothing seems to happend: 
 
        For reasons no one has cared to check you need to  
        "export SHELL=bash". 
 
Linker can't find BINMODE.OBJ: 
 
        You haven't included VC98/lib in the linker path, aka "lib" in 
        your ".init_ntrc". 
 
Popups on the Windows machine saying things like "The application has 
failed to start because foo.dll was not found.": 
 
        The DLLs must be in the system path. Copy them from your pike 
        installation dir to \windows\. 
 
How do you start pike in the VC6 debugger? 
 
        msdev pike.exe [pike arguments] 
 
        Set up breakpoints in Edit -> Breakpoints (or Alt+F9) and run 
        with Build -> Start Debug -> Go (or F5). 
 
Running the SDK setup.bat results in the message "\Microsoft was 
unexpected at this time.": 
 
        You probably have your SDK in "\Program Files(x86)\..." and 
        the paratheses screw up the program flow unless quoted. For 
        MSSDK Feb 2003 Find the line  
        'set Path=%MSSdk%\Bin\WinNT\NT4;%Path%' and put proper quotes 
        around the path. 
 
        There is also a more general fix for this suggested on 
        http://mark.santaniello.net/archives/223: 
 
        setlocal enabledelayedexpansion 
        set FIXED= 
        FOR %%I IN ("%PATH:;=" "%") do ( 
            set FIXED=!FIXED!%%~fsI; 
        ) 
        for %%D in (a) do ( 
            endlocal 
            set PATH=%FIXED% 
        )
