NMAKE Fatal Error U1059

syntax error : '}' missing in dependent

A search path for a dependent was incorrectly specified. Either a space existed in the path or the closing brace (}) was omitted.

The syntax for a directory specification for a dependent is

{ directories }dependent

where directories specifies one or more paths, each separated by a semicolon (;). No spaces are allowed.

If part or all of a search path is replaced by a macro, make sure no spaces exist in the macro expansion.
