Troublesome compiler error

Troublesome compiler error

Somewhere along the way I began to get the error code 'error PRJ0019: A tool returned an error code', quite frequently when compiling. An immediate retry always works OK. I cannot correlate this code to anything in particular with the code I am compiling. Any ideas to help track it down?

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

Are you using any pre or post build commands? This is the kind of error I get when one of these fails.


That error occurs when either a custom build step fails, as David suggests, or one of the Microsoft tools invoked as part of the build fails. The Manifest Tool (mt.exe) is a common culprit. You would need to examine the full build log to see which step in the build gives the error - it won't be the compiler.
