  • Strange Compiler Error

    I am compiling a calculational program that I wrote and, when using the compile and run switch in the editor, I get the following non-numbered error:

    File is not an executable (.EXE) program: C:\lucky patent\stationary hydrophobic gradient chromatography\electrostatic interaction chromatography calculation beta lactoglobulin ANIONIC configuration detailed analysis search with salt data input in runbutton PRtack size: 1048576 bytes.

    The file actually compiles and appears to run perfectly when the exe is double-clicked in windows explorer, so I am at a loss as to how to debug the problem. Any advice??

    Maybe IDE is looking for the file extension ".exe" which is not found in this case?

    Maybe because what you have so far is using up 220 characters of the command line (used internally by either ShellExecute[Ex] or CreateProcess) and other options used (preceding) use up more than remaining resulting in truncation of file name?

    Regardless, since this is running from the IDE this is clearly a question which should be directed to [email protected]
