Error: Creating a static library archive failed

dds primarily works with static libraries, and the file format of a static library is known as an archive. This error indicates that dds failed in its attempt to collect one or more compiled object files together into an archive.

It is unlikely that regular user action can cause this error, and is more likely an error related to the environment and/or filesystem.

If you are using a custom toolchain and have specified the archiving command explicitly, it may also be possible that the argument list you have given to the archiving tool is invalid.

When archiving fails, dds will print the output and command that tried to generate the archive. It should provide more details into the nature of the failure.
