Problem :

I have recently installed the Visual Studio 2012 Release Preview, and it works fine, however now when I want to use Visual Studio 2010 to compile my C++ projects, I am facing below error message:

LINK : fatal error LNK1123: failure during conversion to COFF: file invalid or corrupt

I have also tried repairing my Visual Studio 2010 by using Add/Remove programs and after that rebooting however no change.

I also face the same error if I try to use Visual Studio 2012 RC to compile my C++ projects whenever I try to use the Visual Studio 2010 toolset.

I have also tried to uninstall my Visual Studio 2012 and rebooted my box but the problem still persists!.

Does anyone has any solution on it.

Solution :

Please follow below approach to resolve your issue :

Step : 01

Project Properties

   -> Configuration Properties

       -> Linker (General)

          -> Enable Incremental Linking -> "No (/INCREMENTAL:NO)"

If the Step 1 is not working for you then try Step 2

Step : 02

Project Properties

   -> Configuration Properties

       -> Manifest Tool (Input and Output)

          -> Enable Incremental Linking -> "No"

If the Step 2 is also not working for you then try Step3 Copy file one of:

Step : 03

a)   C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\VC\bin\cvtres.exe

b)    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\VC\bin\cvtres.exe

c)    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 13.0\VC\bin\cvtres.exe

Finally replace to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\bin\cvtres.exe With me, do 3 step it work
