less compiler problem on windows .
Does anyone have an idea?

lessc app.less --clean-css="--s1 --advanced" $(CSSDIR)write.css

I tryied many times
and finally I used some online tools , but for app.less I needed multi less convert to one file.

and I removed less version 4 and installed 3.5.3
npm install -g less@3.5.3

Its worked
