Thanks for the reply.

Something between that and getting the reply made it go away, so I wasn't able to test it any more.
It's back again now.

No - there is nothing with a d: in the path - or any of my environment variables.

It faults with no makefile.
It faults with an empty makefile.
It still faults if I close the cmd window and a new one.

If I do a make -d - it pops up the message after printing "This program built for i686-pc-mingw32" but before "Reading makefiles..."

It doesn't fault with --help or --version

Does this help?

However - every so often make just pops up a window reporting that there
is no disk in drive d: (my CD)  - with the option to cancel/try
again/continue. None of them appear to work - and the make process crashes.
This happens whether or not there is a makefile in the current directory
( but not if I do a make --version)
I get the feeling that it's some wierd mode that my PC has got itself
into - I don't think it goes away unless I reboot it.

Could it be that some directory on D: somehow finds it way into your

If the above doesn't help, then please tell if the problem happens
even with an empty Makefile?  If not, what minimal Makefile do you
need to reproduce the problem (when it begins to happen)?
