error &H3e:Include file is not found
« on: April 24, 2011, 09:37:28 PM »

I have just started using Scriptbasic. I am running it on Windows XP.

I have downloaded and extracted version 3.0 to a Windows directory C:\Scriptbasic. I can run some of the examples from the command shell.

eg C:\Scriptbasic>scriba C:\Scriptbasic\Examples\parser\   runs the program.

I have a path statement that included C:\Scriptbasic\bin\ and C:\Scriptbasic\include.

I cannot run a GTK example. I installed GTK+ and copied the gtk dll to modules and copied the gtk.bas file to the C:\Scriptbasic\include directory. Now if I run which has the line import gtk.bas I get error &H3e:Include file is not found.

Is there a configuration file that I should be setting up to let scriptbasic know where the include directory is?

Welcome to the ScriptBasic forum.

If you want to reference extensions modules from your scripts, (using IMPORT or INCLUDE)  you should have a configuration file defined that at least points to the module and include directories. Keep in mind that the configuration file needs to compiled with the scriba -k <text version of config file>. If no pre-existing config is found in the bin directory, ScriptBasic will generate it in the C:\WINDOWS directory. Using the scriba -d <your script> will show the loading process and success of extension modules you may be using in your scripts.

GTK-Server is a great way to add a GUI to your ScriptBasic scripts.

Let us know if you need any help getting up to speed with SB.
