Ever since I changed OS from w98 to wXP I've had some trouble with compilation in MS VC++. Most of the time (not always) when I'm compiling a program that has some syntax error in it VC crashes. Well, not the actual IDE but rather the compiler. I can still access menues and such, however I can't stop the compilation. It just freezes and won't stop. Like if it enters some kind of infinite loop. And I can't exit the program cause "a compilation is still in progress".
It get kinda tedious after a while that you have to Ctrl+Alt+Delete to quit the program then start it again to make another compile attempt.
Does this problem sound familiar to someone? I've reinstalled MS VC several times but the error is still there. It's version 6.0.
