The current Windows tools don't support Fortran 9x, just Fortran 77. If you have your own Fortran 90 compiler, you can enter it into MkRules (either by enabling the GCC4 macro, or entering it directly in the F95 macro).

But you should have got an error about the compiler not existing, not an error about no source files.

Are you sure you named the file *.f90? I get a check warning about no source files if I name the file test.F90, but not for test.f90.
