I am getting several kinds of errors seemingly related to the manifest settings.
For some projects (on some machines but not others), enabling the manifest gives the "Error PRJ0019: A tool returned an error code". This one took quite a lot of time to figure out as the message is a little vague.. Eventually trial and error indicated it can be removed by disabling the manifest.
In some other projects requiring DLLs, disabling the manifest gives a runtime error due to inability to find MSVCR90D.dll. Enabling the manifest, or specifying /lib:static removes the error.
I also read in a post by Steve that the manifest is useful (required?) for correct mixed language interaction.
If this manifest is indeed needed, is there some way of avoiding these seemingly inconsistent errors?
thanks in advance, dmitri
