    MSVC behaves strange

    I canīt figure out why MSVC is acting so strange and I would need some advice before I deside to reinstall MSVC. I can compile and run programs but it is giving me some wierd erros and warning. E.i

    Every time I modfy a file I need to press the save button twice because the first time a get an error messsage that says
    "Path'
    Cannot save file. The file may be in use by another application".
    This is very annoying because every time a compile a new file I need to do it twice.
    Another problem is that a canīt open a project file proper. When I double click an *.dsw file a get an error message that says
    "Cannot acces the ClassView infomation file. ClassView infomation will not be available".And when a try to compile it it says "cannot open program database 'c:\code\c++\test\debug\vc60.pdb'.

    Is the only alternative to reinstall MSVC?

    You need to apply the service pack 6 which is a 129-ish MB download from Microsoft - http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...-US/vs6sp5.exe
    Also I've been told that Visual C++ is affected like that from Norton Antivirus, and if you disable it, it may stop. However I'd download SP5 if I were you.

    I been rackin' out my brain
    It don't matter how we make it
    'Cause it always ends the same
    You can push it for more mileage
    But your flaps r' wearin' thin
    And I could sleep on it 'til mornin'
    But this nightmare never ends
    Don't forget to call my lawyers
    With ridiculous demands
    An you can take the pity so far
    But it's more than I can stand
    'Cause this couchtrip's gettin' older
    Tell me how long has it been
    'Cause 5 years is forever
    An you haven't grown up yet

    Iīve already installed that patch and still experiating the same problem. However I have Norton Antivirus installed and to my big surprice it affects MSVC (I would NEVER find out it be myself). When I disable it and donīt need to press the savebutton twice . I also cannoīt grasp why the compiler cannīt open the file patch/debug/vc60.pdb because it there and exist. This code is written in WindowsXP/MSVC6.0(with patch)/FAT32 and I try open it in Windows2000/MSVC6.0(with patch)/NTFS. My (wild) guess would be that the two differnt filesystem is causing this trouble...

    Any thoughts on this subject is appreciated

    I think it has to do with scanning on file access -- this messes up some other programs (including the XP kernel itself with certain combinations of factors).

    Try another version of NAV?
