More MFC Linker Errors in VC++4.0 (LNK2005)

I am having fits trying to link the simplest MFC app.

First of all, I can't get even an AppWizard-generated shell of a program to link dynamically using the mfc40d.dll. So, I
can't try some of the suggestions others have made to do
this in order to solve my LNK2005 problems. I would prefer
to link dynamically, if I could.

Here is the error I get, running with /verbose:lib and with
the included libraries of - mfc40d.lib msvcrtd.lib
3dPlusd.lib, in that order. No excluded libs.:

=== begin linker output ===
Linking...
LINK : LNK4073: cannot create map for .ILK file; linking
nonincrementally

    Searching H:\MSDEV\LIB\msvcrtd.lib:

LINK : error : Internal error during Pass1
link.exe terminated at user request.
test2.exe - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)
=== end linker output ===


Next, I tried to link statically. This worked for my AppWizard
tiny program - a single TextOut statement in the view window.
But, when I tried to remove some classes, and insert some code
into CMyApp::InitInstance(), I get the LNK2005 errors.

Below is a sample, linked with included libraries
nafxcwd.lib libcmtd.lib 3dPlusd.lib (in that order), and
by *Ex*cluding mfc40d.lib and msvcrtd.lib.:

=== begin linker output ===

This is my first foray with an MSVC version > 2.0, after a
couple of years of UNIX development. I have looked at the other
posts regarding this (or similar) problem(s), and tried the
suggestions - no success. I've also tried suggestions I found
in Books Online, shipped with MSVC, also no help. What am I
doing wrong? I hear that people actually *do* create apps
and make money using MSVC, right? I'm wondering how right now.

Sorry this post is long, but I believe in being thorough.

Please help.

This could be due to several reasons :
- Disk space .
- Clash between two libraries viz libc . libcmt or msvcrt.
- This could be also due to some corruption of obj files.

If the above things don't work tell me which version of VC++ are you running ?
