I have a team of 4 working on several different Fortran projects in a code repository. I can successfully build all of the projects. My coworkers cannot. They each get a link error that says "Cannot open bufferoverflowu.lib." A quick search of the internet shows that this used to be an issue when mixing versions of visual studio because bufferoverflowu was removed from the windows SDK. Each one of the projects has only ever been compiled with Intel Composer XE 2013 Update 3 using the visual studio 2010 shell. When I view the verbose linker output everything looks identical, except their machines have the line "Processing DEFAULTLIB:bufferoverflowu.lib." If we change our project files to ignore this library, everything builds fine. What could be causing this? I am completely puzzled. Are there some compiler options that would force this to be included by the linker? An environment variable? How is DEFAULTLIB set? Unfortunately, I can't post any logs or files, so I understand if no one can help. Thanks.
