    Visual C++ 6.0 : linking / compiling problems

    it seems almost everytime i make a change to my code then re-compile, the compiler gets stuck compiling, and im unable to press stop build. the only way i can get out, is to save, then ctrl+alt+del, to close the program.

    once i get back in, ill try to press build rather than compile, and then it gets stuck linking........

    does anyone know why this is?

    I would guess you possibly have a bad install. Otherwise, you might be on a really bad computer.

    Also, I know people would probably recommend you get a new compiler, such as MinGW's g++, or something similar.

    It's probably screwed up one of it's data files along the way and is generally making a mess of dealing with it.

    Quit VC6, if it's running.

    Create a backup of your current project, say add top-level dir to a ZIP file.

    Delete the "Debug" and "Release" directories.
    Delete "proj.ncb" and "proj.opt".

    Restart VC6 and do "Batch build", select all the boxes and then click "rebuild all".
    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.
