    How to resolve linking errors?

    Why is it that when I compile syntactically correct code for the first time(right after I open the compiler) the compiler says it has 0 errors, but every subsequent time the compiler says there is a linking error? Currently, I resolve this by closing the file and my compiler and then reopening each of them. It becomes a hassle to do this every time. What is the best way to approach this?

    I used to have problems with that too. Sometime if i steal code from another program i've built with different header files it tends to look for them. But i do not need them or forgot to add mopre code to my program from an outside header file. Anyways, i try compiling it which links them all together which seams to work 99% of the time BUt i have had to cut n paste then delete that file just to recreate it again. It works great afterwords. BTW, R U using MV C++?

    Microsoft visual c++ 6.0 standard edition is the one that giving me that error. Here is what it says:

    "C:\Windows\assign2p3.cpp(31) : warning C4101: 'fixed' : unreferenced local variable
    Linking...
    LINK : fatal error LNK1168: cannot open Debug/assign2p3.exe for writing
    Error executing link.exe."

    sometimes it happens to me if i run my program, and it crashed. then it is still running sometimes, and you can't run another.
