    VS C++ 2008 failing o.O

    Ok, I tried compiling this project which has compiled fine in two other PCs, but in this one it gives me...
    Code:
    Project : error PRJ0002 : Error result -1073741819 returned from 'C:\Programmer\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\bin\mt.exe
    anyone know why? the only difference I know of, is that I downloaded DirectX SDK personally for both the other PCs, dunno if it's installed in this one... I'll try that
    But the error lies in Microsoft SDK... So anyone know exactly what's happening?

    Find out what this program does, where it is applied in your build process, and why it could fail on your input.
    Also, google the error message (minus the specific path).

    Not the project, the specific failing program, this mt.exe.

    Does a rebuild help?
