I am trying to use the NMAKE build utility in Eclipse for my Project .I have configured an external tool where the NMAKE.exe location is specified. The NMAKE utility requires a MAKEFILE to execute. Also I have linked resources in my project. How do I point my external tool to use the MAKEFILE when i run the NMAKE tool . Right now it is not able to find the MakeFile when the command is executed.

Have you tried setting the argument to ${workspace_loc:/projectname/yourmakefile}

Yes I did , but i get an error message saying unable to expand workspace_loc. Also the Makefile does not reside in the workspace directory of eclipse but it is on my local file system . My project is part of the eclipse workspace and it needs to refer to the Makefile when build is performed using NMAKE tool.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
