    Compiler Stops Compiling

    Hi. I have a problem. Whenever I try to compile a program in Visual C++ 6.0, the compilation stops. It doesn't give me an error, or tell me that I made a coding mistake...It just stops. I haven't done anything in options, and this everything is basically set to default. Here's a picture of when it stops. I'm still able to work with the program, change code, etc, but the compilation just stops.

    What type of program are you trying to compile. Windows console app, console app, or dll, etc...??? If its a windows console with API, check your task manager, see if its frozen, that has happened to be a few times. MSVC++ does not freeze, but of couse the program does.

    MSVC crashes sometimes when you try to compile. Occasionally, you'll even have to copy the source files over and make a new project for them, and then everything will work correctly.

    Also, don't click on any menus while compiling.

    This has happened to me a few times with MSVC++ 6, everything compiles ok but then it hangs when it starts the linker.
    The stop build doesn't work either, the program is still responsive but won't let me close or anything because it's still building.

    Something like that happens to me at least once a month with VC++ 6.0. Sometimes it compiles only a few of my files, even though it looks like it compiles them all. Then i think something is wrong with my code because the new code i'm adding has no affect on the program. I come back later and it decides it wants to compile again. MS, sigh.

    It happened to be today, only with win apps.

    Clean your .ini files. That always helps.
