Where can I edit the $PATH settings in the MCUXpresso IDE 11.2.0 for Windows x86_64 ? I've just installed this latest version of the IDE, tried to build one of my old projects and got this error:
Program "make" not found in PATH.
I've double checked my installation and found "make" in the directory where it is expected to be:
So clearly PATH is not correctly. How one can edit it ?
You can see all the variables in the build section (right-click project => Properties => C/C++ Build => Build Variables and make sure to tick "Show system variables"). However, given the fact that this fundamental thing is not working in your case, you'll probably run into some other problems after fixing the path variable.

I followed (right-click project => Properties => C/C++ Build => Build Variables and make sure to tick "Show system variables"), found the "Path" variable and appended the path to the "make" utility which was missing, namely "C:\nxp\MCUXpressoIDE_11.2.0_4120\ide\buildtools\bin;". I applied the changes and then I restarted the IDE and tried to build my project. It failed the same as before with this message:
Error: Program "make" not found in PATH
PATH=[C:/nxp/MCUXpressoIDE_11.2.0_4120/ide/jre/bin/server;C:/nxp/MCUXpressoIDE_11.2.0_4120/ide/jre/bin;C:/nxp/MCUXpressoIDE_11.2.0_4120/ide/jre/lib/amd64;C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Windows\System32\OpenSSH\;C:\Program Files\Hummingbird\Connectivity\14.00\NFS Maestro\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Hummingbird\Connectivity\14.00\NFS Maestro\;C:\Program Files\PuTTY\;C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin;C:\Program Files\dotnet\;C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\130\Tools\Binn\;C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\Client SDK\ODBC\170\Tools\Binn\;C:\Users\212476878\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WindowsApps;;C:\nxp\MCUXpressoIDE_11.2.0_4120\ide;]
But the PATH in the error message still does not incorporate my latest addition, "C:\nxp\MCUXpressoIDE_11.2.0_4120\ide\buildtools\bin;". And the variable I edited through the menu was "Path" while the one in the error message is "PATH". So the question remains - how do I edit "Path" (or "PATH" ?) so that the IDE recognizes my changes ?
I think you need to change in a different place:
MCUExpresso IDE->Paths and directories
and edit the 'Additional Path directories' to ensure it contains paths to your files.
