I am currently working on a mid-scale project and compiling and linking worked perfect until now. I played around with my resource files and the linker won't eat my object files anymore:
LINK : fatal error LNK1123: failure during conversion to COFF: file invalid or corrupt
I already deleted the resource file, the resource header and made them new about 5 times, I removed all possibly deprecated object and pch files and restartet Visual Studio countless times, but it still won't work.
Never seen that before, I can only assume there is some corruption elsewhere on your system. Looking at some of the Google finds for that Link error I noticed a number that suggested either a system restore, or the use of a special recovery tool or both. you may wish to research some of those suggestions yourself. As a last resort you can always try the Microsoft Development Q&A - I don't have the address but I have used it in the past and got some useful feedback.
i try to open a *.chm File with a HtmlHelp() API this part works if i want to go to specific topic this all works fine.
I have a problem if i want to open my *.chm file with a HH_DISPLAY_SEARCH option.
I open my file and the "search" tab is selected, but search routine is not started?
On MSDN site http://support.microsoft.com/kb/241381[^] says that this don't work yet.
Does any one know a alternative for this?
Or is there any way to do this with hh.exe and "mk:@MSITStore:"??
