Linking warnings.

I've been getting some linking warnings that I don't know how to
get rid of.  The only way that I can get my program to compile
is to use \FORCE.  Has anyone else encountered the following
situation?

LINK : warning LNK4075: ignoring /INCREMENTAL due to /FORCE specification
MSVCRT.lib(MSVCRT.dll) : warning LNK4006: _malloc already defined in libcmtd.lib(dbgheap.obj); second definition ignored
MSVCRT.lib(MSVCRT.dll) : warning LNK4006: _fprintf already defined in libcmtd.lib(fprintf.obj); second definition ignored
MSVCRT.lib(MSVCRT.dll) : warning LNK4006: _realloc already defined in libcmtd.lib(dbgheap.obj); second definition ignored
MSVCRT.lib(MSVCRT.dll) : warning LNK4006: _free already defined in libcmtd.lib(dbgheap.obj); second definition ignored
LINK : warning LNK4098: defaultlib "MSVCRT" conflicts with use of other libs; use /NODEFAULTLIB:library

I've tried various combinations of using /NODEFAULTLIB
(including msvcrt.lib but not libcmtd.lib, etc, etc. etc) but each
of these results in more linking errors.

My program does run fine when I use the /FORCE option but it
does bother me that I'm unable to get rid of these warnings
altogether.

Any suggestions?

menu Project->Settings
"Link" tab
category "Input"
Object/library modules: MSVCRT.lib libcmtd.lib
Ignore libraries: MSVCRT.lib libcmtd.lib

YOu tell DevStudio to ignore both libaraies and specify them in correct order - MSVCRT.lib first.

The error caused with the functions presented in both libraries.

Ok, tried that and I get:

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You are probably trying to link multiple modules that have been compiled using different threading models. In Project Settings, C/C++ tab, Code Generation, change to a multithreaded model.

Yes, I've already got it set to
Debug Multithreaded.

The ordering thing is weird also.
According to Q148652, I need
to have it link
MSVCRT before LIBCMTD but when I do
that, I get a load of errors as
noted above.  If I do it the
other way (LIBCMTD first), then
I only get a few errors (first message).

Although the program runs fine with
the /FORCE, it is still a little
unsettling that I have to use this
in the first place.  It makes
me nervous when I can't get rid
of all of the warnings.

which have the same function defination
if u have includede malloc.h

just remove the include statement
