How to get .deh files to work?

Ok, here is my problem: I have a TC that comes with a deh patch. Vavoom does not support deh patches anymore, so I have to compile these into progs. I downloaded the progs package unzipped it into Vavoom directory. Reading the docs I know i have to use the hack_d2 directory since it is a TC for Doom 2. I also put vcc.exe in there. Then i copied the .deh from the TC into that directory and changed the filename inside that batch file so that it points to the new deh. Then i ran the batchfile - looking in the log it creates, it tells me, that some things are not found, like monsters and stuff. But it creates some text files. Everything fine until here (if those "not found" messages are not an error, which i assume). When I run compile.bat it tells me that it cannot find the includes. I looked into it to check the path and it is correct. I thought, maybe there's a space missing, so i inserted it after the -I and vcc displays the options. So the space is ok, but maybe it does not like the "../" in it. I then copied the common and doom directory into hack_d2 (yes, compile.bat refers to the Doom dir, not doom2, maybe an error, too). I changed the batch file so that it refers to -Icommon and -Idoom/client and vcc complains again, that it cannot find the include files. I changed it back again, tried another thing (exchange / with \), but it just spits out the error. Now I am helpless <!-- s:cry: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_cry.gif" alt=":cry:" title="Crying or Very sad" /><!-- s:cry: --> Maybe it's a bug, maybe I am just to dumb. <!-- s:oops: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_redface.gif" alt=":oops:" title="Embarassed" /><!-- s:oops: --> The OS is WIN98 on a PII-350 I would try it with WIN2k but vcc.exe, acc.exe and vlumpy.exe do all crash with an "Exiting due to signal SIGILL" error.

Currently all .deh and .ddf file support is completely out of date. I'll try to find time to update it.
