    Can you supply a little more information? What version of PAlib did you install? What version of devkitPro did you install? I know PAlib usually requires a specific version of DevkitPro to work correctly.

    It can also be that some of the path/environment variables aren't set up right.

    Look at the flag
    make is for Linux. Are you sure you're running the Windows version?

    no, make can be used for windows too. It's far more likely something isn't installed correctly.

    Go to your devkitPro folder and open installed.ini. Look for [devkitARM] and tell me what it says.

    Weird. That's the same version I have.

    There's a Makefile in the folder you're trying to compile right? I'm going to go ahead and assume so, since you're testing an example.

    I'm not sure how to help you now. You may want to go post this question on the PAlib forum. They can probably help you.
