c++ - Need extra smarts from the directory handling

  Fatal error: unable to open input file 'ShlWApi.h'

This is becauses MSSDK (as it installs) is defined as "P:\SDKs\Microsoft
SDK\." rather than the more sensible "P:\SDKs\Microsoft SDK", which means
that "%MSSDK%\include" expands to "P:\SDKs\Microsoft SDK\.\include".

Alas, DMC++ is the only compiler I have access to that is unable to use
GetFullPathName() (or a similar mechanism) to deduce a canonical version and
operate correctly.

Any chance of a fix for this for 8.35? (For the moment I'm editing MSDDK's
environment settings.)

I recall seeing a few posts at Mingw's mailing list from people having the same problem with the '.'!

Why not just change the -I command to:

I can't speak for "any", but in this case yes.

I don't know how you're implementing internally, but I know that
GetFullPathName() will canonicalise such things
