The file is corrupt.
The file is not a valid file type. An example of an invalid type is a 16-bit OMF object.

The error occurred since the project was created. I create the project and when I run it, without any changes, the error appears. So i don't think a corrupt file is causing this error.

In fact, the probably cause is corrupt files generated by VS 2012 RC. I assume this because I repeated the same steps in another PC without VS 2012 RC and it worked perfectly.
