FAQ 345: Error Message 'No such file or directory'


The build process of one of the following components aborts:

  • A Simulink model (with RTI)
  • An application (with ConfigurationDesk)
  • An SIC (with VEOS)

The following error message is displayed:


Build with RTI:

<modelname>.h:<XX>:<XX>: fatal error: brtenv.h: No such file or directory
 #include <brtenv.h>
compilation terminated.
gmake: *** [<modelname>.obj] Error 1


Build with ConfigurationDesk:

DSMAKE: mdladapter_mdlfunctions.cpp:<XX>:<XX>: error: <modelname>_dsrtmdlfcn.h: No such file or directory

DSMAKE: Compilation was not successful. (1)
The make phase failed for the following application process: <application process name>.

==== Build process aborted ==================================


Build with VEOS:

COMPILING "…\SicAppFrm_FunMod_generated.c"
In file included from …/SicAppFrm_Cfg.h:<XX>:<XX>,
                 from …\SicAppFrm_FunMod_generated.c:<XX>:

…/SicAppFrm_Cfg_generated.h:<XX>:<XX>: fatal error: <modelname>_dsmpbap.h: No such file or directory
 #include "<modelname>_dsmpbap.h"
compilation terminated.
COMPILING FAILED. See …\SicAppFrm_FunMod_generated.err for details


Similar error messages might be displayed with different file names.

Why does the compiler report this error message although the mentioned files exist in the file system?
