Visual Studio 2008: Microsoft Incremental Linker is buggy

Visual Studio's C++ linker is a piece of shit, or at least it is on Vista/Win7. I've been playing around with it for creating x64 apps and as LStucki mentioned, it doesn't seem like Microsoft is eating their own dog food very much.

A temporary fix for this would be to disable the embedded manifest.

  1. Project
  2. Properties
  3. Configuration Properties
  4. Manifest Tool
  5. Input and Output

Set "Embed Manifest" to "No".

Props to Juan Baez (Tux`) for that!
