When building a project, I encounter a dialog box with the following error:  "An invalid argument was encountered".  What's the cause of this error and how can I avoid it?





There are a couple of issues that can cause this error message. First can you take a look at all of your project options under "Project Options: Load", and ensure that any paths that are wrapped in quotes have both a starting quote and an ending quote, check that any 'additional options' fields, etc, only contain valid commands/switches.


If that is not the problem, navigate to your project folder in Windows, and raname the *.PCF and *.MAK file, then go to Project: Update Dependencies, to ensure the problem isn't being caused by corruption in the pcf or makefile.
