I guess the cause of your problem is that script could not find uuidgen.exe utility. It is
installed with Visual Studio but it id necessary to add the path to this utility to your PATH
variable. Unfortunately, I have missed this prerequisite in my previous mail. Also it may
be useful to call vsvars32 before the solution generation.

The script now checks that it is able to run uuidgen and ICProjConvert90 (for icc solutions
only) utilities. 

The attached archive "scripts_tar.gz" contains the latest scripts version. Try it, please.

With best wishes,
Anton Pevtsov.

That's odd. I would have expected it either to succeed or you to get an email back explaining
why the post bounced.

I don't know of any restriction on .zip files or other binaries but you might want to ask

Okay, that's fine.

Yes, I have those.

I added that to my PATH.

Hmm, I get the error below now, both with msvc-7.1 and icc-9.0 as the value of CONFIG. The
text of the error message isn't helpful in identifying the name of the file the script cannot
find (what do the two numbers in the parentheses mean?) I'm afraid I'm at a loss how to fix
it (it would be good to improve this and other similar error messages).
