    VS2008 having trouble 'spawning cmd.exe'

    Alright now I have no idea what is wrong with VS2008. Last night I was trying to compile and run code and it was telling me it was having trouble 'spawning cmd.exe'. I did a repair on it last night and ran a quick test and it worked fine. Today I go to use it and am immediately running into the same error. Have no idea why. Does anyone have any clue why this would be?

    I'm trying to post this problem on the m$ forum and it is set up so horribly I'm not messing with that. I'll send them an email if I can find an email to use.

    looked this error up:

    Code:
    1>------ Build started: Project: logical shift search, Configuration: Debug Win32 ------
    1>Embedding manifest...
    1>Project : error PRJ0003 : Error spawning 'cmd.exe'.
    1>Build log was saved at "file://c:\Documents and Settings\Cruisin'\My Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Projects\logical shift search\logical shift search\Debug\BuildLog.htm"
    1>logical shift search - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)
    ========== Build: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========
    Search results say one of the main causes is low system resources. I got a 4 gig system here. Hmm. I did just update the BOINC client. That may be causing the problems.
