Hello Mike,

1) the output of clang --version is:
clang version 10.0.0
Target: x86_64-pc-windows-msvc
Thread model: posix
InstalledDir: C:\Program Files\LLVM\bin

2) The output of lld-link --vrsion is:
LLD 10.0.0

3) cmd.exe
Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.17763.1217]
Note, I'm just using the standard cmd.exe not the VC developer console or any other scripts to modify it.

Please find attached the minimal Tupfile.lua and the main.cc
On my System I put them under C:\tuptest\
Since clang on Windows doesn't ship it's own C++ STL it's a bit messy, especially the paths.

When running tup I do get the following output:

C:\tuptest>tup
[ tup ] [0.000s] Scanning filesystem...
[ tup ] [0.000s] Reading in new environment variables...
[ tup ] [0.000s] No Tupfiles to parse.

tup error: File 'C:/tuptest/test.exe.tmp1a7550b' was written to, but is not in .tup/db. You probably should specify it as an output
-- Delete: C:/tuptest/test.exe.tmp1a7550b
*** Command failed due to errors processing the output dependencies.
[ ] 100%
*** tup: 1 job failed.


The test.exe file is created by clang.

By the way I'm using "Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise 2019 LTSC" just in cas it's important.

Best regards,
Christoph

Thanks, this seemed to be the part I was missing. I was still running clang 6...

The problem was that clang now creates 2 temporary files, one of which it sets delete-on-close with NtSetInformationFile using the FileDispositionInformation data, and the other one it renames to the final output with NtSetInformationFile using the FileRenameInformation data. Tup already handled the rename information (as part of supporting older versions of clang), but it did not handle the FileDispositionInformation as a method of deleting files. So it saw the file being created, but not that it was delete-on-close, and flagged it as an error.

I believe this is now handled properly in http://gittup.org/tup/win32/tup-v0.7.8-38-gd1a99c15.zip - can you give that a try? Hopefully we're getting closer :)

-Mike

Hello Mike,

thank you! That fixed it.

With the new version it works with the test project as well as my own project.
The error is no longer shown.

Best regards,
Christoph
