VS6 project fails to build after .NET 03 install

P: n/a
NMA
I have a Visual Studio 6 project that was building correctly.
I took a day off of that project to install .NET 03 for another
project,
then returned to my VS6 project the next day. Without any modifications
made
to the code, the VS6 project now fails to build.

I am seeing the following:
error C2653: 'XXXXXX' : is not a class or namespace name

for the first class constructor that the compiler encounters, and many
more
errors after that.

My include directories are correctly set to my VC98\Include directory,
and
using the /P option, I see no reference to any .NET install directory.

When zipped and built on another machine without .NET 03, the project
builds
correctly.

Any thoughts are greatly apperciated.

Several thoughts come to mind. First, this is off-topic, since your
question is about products and not about the language itself. Second,
try to understand what is different. You installed a different system
or compiler between those two events (it built, then it didn't build).
Somehow the second installation must affect the first.

No, since it's off-topic here, I cannot even venture any guesses as to
what might be going on. I'll just say that on my machine three VC++
IDEs coexist perfectly peacefully, v6, v7.1, and v8 Beta. So, for all
I know it must be possible.

Go to 'microsoft.public.vc.ide_general' or another 'microsoft.public.vc'
newsgroup and ask there. Those forums are specifically for Microsoft
Visual C++ products and very knowledgeable people frequent those NGs.
They will be able to help.
