    WTF is up wit my Visual C++?!!

    Ok, i had this problem with VC++ 6.0 out of nowhere about a week ago, at which time it was installed on my d:\ drive(hard disk).

    So i uninstalled and reinstalled on my c:\ drive and its STILL doing it.

    It says for any and every program when u try and compile:

    --------------------Configuration: hello - Win32 Debug--------------------
    Compiling...
    Error spawning cl.exe

    hello.obj - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)
    And thats ALL it says, WTH?!?!

    whoa... I've never got that error, and I certainly don't like the sound of "Error spawning cl.exe"

    Have you installed anything else lately? Sounds like something's corrupted.

    Did you ever have a previous version or previous installation of this version of VC++?

    Odd. cl.exe is the actual compiler running underneath the IDE. Whenever I've had this problem reported before, I have advised de/re-installing. Of course, de-installers are notoriously bad at removing everything.

    I would suggest deinstalling, then reinstalling where it was originally.

    I talked to R-or-D on AIM... apparently, this is what he did...

    He had VC installed pn D:\... then he MOVED IT to C:\... and changed the shortcut targets! lol!

    AND, he's running a terrabyte raid with FAT32 using XP Enterprise! geeeezuz boy!

    Not quite, i had it on d:\. Then the hard drive that was d:\ became e:\ cuz i moved it two secondary master rather then prim slave.

    So then i took all the d:\programfiles\...... and made the "d:\" "e:\" :P

    Then i made a new install on c:\ after del'n the obvious registry entries.

    As far as the FAT32 it was a rush install to get a paper done, and i used fat32 cuz it formats faster. I intended to make it ntfs very soon after but, ya know. I gotta wipe in the next day or two now *shrug*.
