In order to build an MTA archive from a project's source code in a Windows environment, install GNU Make 4.2.1 on your machine.

You can download the executable from a source that you trust according to your processor (32-bit or 64-bit) to a local folder (change the file name to make.exe) and then add the folder to the PATH environment variable. For example, you can download the tool from here.

Alternatively, you can use Chocolatey to install or upgrade GNU Make.


If the build fails because make cannot run, you might have to install the Command-Line Tools. See the troubleshooting topic for more details.
