Solution :

It seems your problem is mostly that the shell is unable to locate your make program. If you want to use it from "anywhere", then you must do the following :
e.g.
"c:\program files\gnuwin32\bin\make.exe" option1=thisvalue option2=thatvalue

Please note the gnuwin32 is used to provide useful "linux-world" packages for Windows. So please check details on your provider for make.

So to avoid the entering of the path you can add the path of make to your PATH environment variable. 

It will certainly solve your issue.
