I'm trialling the icl and have been using v6 for a while. I tried v7 this morning and have two problems.
1/ Compile times:
MSVC6 2 minutes
icl6 3 minutes
icl7 45 minutes !!!!! (using the same options ans V6)
2/ icl executables:
2a/ The v6 compiler was called icl.exe and everything worked.
2b/ The v7 compiler is also called icl.exe but VS tries to execute xicl6.exe so I renamed icl.exe and everything works.
2c/ Switching back to use V6 still uses xicl6 (the V7 compiler) so I appear to have lost V6, even though it's still there and the option to select it is under the tool menu.
Any ideas anyone, as we got a 30% improvement in our application performance with V7 and I need to finish my comparisons with V6.
