LNK2005 error

MS Development Question

Another link error:

nafxcwd.lib(afxmem.obj) : error LNK2005: "void * __cdecl operator new(unsigned int)" (??2@YAPAXI@Z) already defined in LIBCMTD.lib(new.obj)
nafxcwd.lib(afxmem.obj) : error LNK2005: "void __cdecl operator delete(void *)" (??3@YAXPAX@Z) already defined in LIBCMTD.lib(dbgdel.obj)
.\Debug\foo.exe : fatal error LNK1169: one or more multiply defined symbols found

So LIBCMTD.lib is a standard C runtime library, multithreaded and Nafxcwd.lib is afx, debug version

I have the /MTd option in Project Setting -> C/C++

Suggested solutions to this problem that I've seen elsewhere on the net involve changing options on the Project Settings "Link" tab, which I have do not have

Using VC++6
