Why am I getting "armcc command with no effect" in Eclipse?

Applies to: RealView Development Suite (RVDS)


Some old implementations of the Bourne Shell (sh.exe) on Windows systems are unable to accept long command-lines passed to them by GNU Make. In such cases, the command-line is truncated by sh.exe before it is passed to the compilation tools resulting in a failure to build the project:

armcc : error C3079:  armcc command with no effect

Eclipse's CDT build system does not require the Bourne Shell on Windows and ARM recommends that you do not install this shell when using RVDS. If sh.exe is installed on your Windows system and command-line truncation is seen in project builds, you can work around this limitation in sh.exe by removing it from your Windows PATH.
