3. Include path configuration

Open, modify to fit your import path.
The global include path is supposed to be set in scite4d\, the first line contain the include paths for libraries that all of your projects use (like Phobos or Tango). It is a list of paths separated by ; for example:\dmd\src\phobos;c:\dmd\tango
To change it, modify the line above accordingly and include it in your user options file.

4. building method Configuration

Open ...\ybud.conf, modified the make method to fit your needs.
The default make is Windows port of GNU make(mingw32-make.exe):

You may modified it e.g. make=make to fit your needs.

The default Makefile name is "Makefile":

The default Windows bat file name is build.bat:

You may modified it e.g. "building.bat" to fit you needs.
I recommend you that using dsss to build library, using GNU make to build binary.
