vc6 dsw trying to find deps at wrong path?


Since my last post was user error, maybe you can help me figure out what I'm doing wrong. Pointers to manual appreciated.

I have a .dsw that I can open in my VC6 ide and it finds the children ok, but when I set my VC6 action to build this .dsw, it tries to find the deps one directory up.

So, when I try to build C:\baz\foo\bar.dsw that depends on C:\baz\frob\frob.dsp, it prints

Processing 'C:\frob\frob.dsp'
Failed to open 'C:\frob\frob.dsp': No such file or directory

instead of the directory I expect, 'C:\baz\frob\frob.dsp'.

How does visual build process dependancies in a vc6 file and determine their paths? Is there a setting I need to toggle in my DSW, or a macro I can set?

Running msdev manually from the directory of C:\baz\foo\, like 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\Common\MSDev98\bin\msdev.exe frob.dsw /MAKE all /rebuild' works ok.

The Make VC6 action combines the .dsw file path with each constituent .dsp file's path (if that path is relative). Please zip and post (or send to the .bld and .dsw+.dsp files where this is not working properly. Thanks.
