    rc.exe

    hi, today i was building a program with VC++.Net and suddenly the compiler game me the error PRJ0003 : Error spawning 'rc.exe'. so i loaded another project and tried to compile, but it gave the same error. then i restarted the computer but no good. then i tried to reinstalled the IDE, but the installer program refused to copy the 'rc.exe' into the computer. i tried to manually execute/copy rc.exe from the cd, but it says that i don't have 'appropriate permission' to execute/copy the file. but im on my machine with the administer account. anyone know what's going on here? i can't use vc.net without re.exe. please help!

    thanx.

    when you try to delete rc.exe off your machine - you get "permission denied"?

    Do you have any antiviral software? Try scanning rc.exe and see what you get . . . .

    Other than that, try googling for the error. http://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&q=...G=Search&meta=

    Hi, there's no rc.exe to delete or scan now, cos i uninstalled vc.net (it's only in the .. \ vc7 \ bin directory right?). when i try to install the ide again, windows refuses to copy rc.exe from the cd. but earlier the compiler refused to execute rc.exe so i think if tried to delete it, it'll give the error.

    it tried googling, there were some links. found that reinstalling the sdk or just rebooting will fix the problem. i did both but they didn't work. so i installed a 2nd copy of the os and installed vc.net in it and now ofcource it works now. but i still like to run the ide on the 1st os, so anyone know a solution please reply.

    thx.

    Do you use AVG?

    Is a false positive with rc.exe in AVG latest virus def file (in my 2003 install and on my install DVD).

    I found this from a search of the free forums at AVG (grisoft IIRC).

    I found that as I had quaranteened rc.exe already I could not just disable the houristic scanning to fix. I had to uninstall AVG, copy the rc.exe from the DVD.

    Luckily I use a different checker at work (my home system had the issue).

    Yes, very.

    rc.exe was not in mine either.

    Try uninstalling AVG (replace the rc.exe from your install disk) and see if the issue goes away, it did for me.
