I use Visual C++ development tool for standard c++.I created a Win32 console project.But sometimes i cant build the project.Note:just sometimes.It says"linking",but however much time i wait,it's still linking,but when i try to close the workspace a dialog encountered saying "You cannot close the workspace while a build is in progress. Select the stop Build command before closing the workspace.",i want to know why?Does anybody know?
thanks in advance!

    I get that problem with VC++ 6.0 occasionally too. Just have to use task manager and kill the application.

    personally if your using visual C++ for native develope your silly. It is easier to use the ide from http://www.bloodshed.net/ plus it is actually free for commercial use too. Personally me dont like visual C++ if your developing for .NET it is easier to use the language VB.NET or C# than using visual C++. Simply because your code is far neater in either of these two languages.

    Since when is VB.NET neat!?! VB was a mess before they added OO, exception handling etc to it, now it is even worse. It might be the most horrible language I've ever seen, it is totally inconsistent and you spend more time looking at the help files than at your code. It is one big "guess the syntax" competition, no matter if you know VB6 or not, you end up with trial & error until you get it right. No serious professional developer would use that language.

    I wouldn't say "never" -- VB makes office automation projects pretty easy to code.

    I'm talking about VB.NET, not VBA. One is forced to use VBA when dealing with MS Office since that's the language MS included in it.

    I too would say that all BASIC and it's descendants are yucky languages, I was more refering to C# than VB.NET.

    It may help to go to [Projects] [Settings...]
    tab [Link], Category: [Customize]
    There deselect
    [ ] Link incrementally
    [ ] Use program database
    tab [C/C++], Category: [Precompiled Headers]
    There select
    (o) Not using precompiled headers

    Or

    Use a Virtual machine
    either Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=04d26402-3199-48a3-afa2-2dc0b40a73b6&DisplayLang=en

    or Sun http://www.sun.com/software/products/virtualbox/get.jsp

    Then install Windows 2000 on that virtual maschine and compile and develop there.
