    Try turning off Whole Program Optimization and Link-time Code Generation
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    'Optimization' has been set to 'Disabled' and 'Whole Program Optimization' is 'No'. For 'Link Time Code Generation', I've tried 'Default', 'Use Link Time Code Generation' and all three 'Profile Guided...' options. No change.

    However, when I copied over the directories, it did let me re-compile a project that had already been compiled on the other computer. I got a linker warning about either 'vc90.obj' or 'vc90.pdb' was missing and couldn't be found. After that one successful compile, it stopped letting me compile anything at all, giving me the same error as it has been.

    I had copied everything from Program Files+AppData+Documents over.

    I guess it has something to do with that 'vc90.*' file, so at least I have somewhere to start looking now. Anyone have any ideas about this?

    Well I still can't figure out what the problem is. And judging by the threads on other forums of the few other people that's had this problem there isn't any real indication that they ever solved it either.

    I guess I'm done with this. I am so screwed

    Thanks to everyone for trying to help.

    But, this person is doing VS9 not VS10.

    VS9 works fine on Win7 SP0 too.
