[error spawning link.exe] & [error spawning cl.exe]

P: n/a
I hav previosuly had VB.NET 2003 Standard installed on my machine and it
works great. Yesterday I installed C++.NET 2003 Standard and starting
playing with it. Hardly surprisingly it also worked and I started playing
around and compiling C++ code.

I revisited that same code after a reboot and some of the solutions compile
without error, two others don't compile and give either "error spawning
link.exe" or "error spawning cl.exe" errors.

I have no idea what can be cuasing this.I have tried reinstalling C++.NET
and VB.NET but this has made no difference.

Please Help

Hey Russ. I know it's been a year (minus a day) since you posted your
question in all the forums, but after having the same problem for a few
days, I came up with an answer. Other people posted that to fix the
"error spawning link.exe" problem, you had to change the directory of
the "include" files or whatever. I tried that, but it didn't work. I
also reinstalled C++ twice, but I didn't have any luck with that
either. After trying to figure it out for a while, I finally decided to
see if my antivirus programs were blocking a program that needed to run
(the link program). So, after disabling Norton and Zone Alarm (I think
it was probably Zone Alarm that was doing it), my program started to
run. So try disabling any antivirus programs you have and compiling
your program again. I hope this helps someone else who comes across the
same problem.
