NMAKE Fatal Error U1035

NMAKE Fatal Error U1035

syntax error : expected ':' or '=' separator

Either a colon (:) or an equal sign (=) was expected.

To fix by checking the following possible causes

  1. A colon did not follow a target.

  2. A colon and no space (such as a:) followed a single-letter target. NMAKE interpreted it as a drive specification.

  3. A colon did not follow an inference rule.

  4. A macro definition was not followed by an equal sign.

  5. A character followed a backslash (\) that was used to continue a command to a new line.

  6. A string appeared that did not follow any NMAKE syntax rule.

  7. The makefile was formatted by a word processor.
