Why do I get this compilation error when trying to build my project?
"command line error MIDL1004 : cannot execute C preprocessor cl.exe"
I have changed the computer on which I work on. It's a project that's been going on for more than a year so this error must have something to do with the change of computer. There are no codechanges.
We use SourceSafe so what I did before changing pc was to check in all files and then set a new working folder on my new pc before building and getting the above errmess. Another thing is that when I tried this at home last night, there was no problem. The build succeeded... I was logged on as a local admin when it worked and today when I'm logged on as a user who's network domain admin as well as local admin on the new pc it doesn't work.
This is so strange, can anyone help me out??? I have to make it work quickly...
Thanks for your help
