    Unhappy Getting 'LINK : error : Internal error during SetupPhase' when I execute in VisualC++

    I've written a small program that stores information from a list in a .txt file to a structure, which can then be looked up through an array of pointers.
    I finished writing a basic test version of this and compiled it: 0 errors 0 warnings
    Then when I tried to execute the .exe file I got this error:

    --------------------Configuration: lab1 - Win32 Debug--------------------
    LINK : error : Internal error during SetupPhase
      ExceptionCode            = C0000005
      ExceptionFlags           = 00000000

      NumberParameters         = 00000002
      ExceptionInformation[ 0] = 00000000
      ExceptionInformation[ 1] = 00000018

      Dr2    = 00000000  Dr7    = 00000000
    Error executing link.exe.
    Tool execution canceled by user.
    I'm using the Microsoft Visual C++ compiler, anyone know how I can fix this problem?
    I've executed plenty of programs before without this happening. This error is now happening whenever I try to execute any .exe file i've made.

    Well pasting the error message into a search engine, and doing a bit of reading suggests that you probably need to apply the latest service pack for your compiler.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
