Visual C++ 6.0 problem - getting stuck while creating browse info file

I'm using Visual C++ 6.0 for some time now, but with my roots at unix,
I've never gotten to really understand it.

After a long time that everything worked fine, VC started getting stuck
while creating the browse info file. I can't even stop the build - all I can
do is shut down VC from the task manager and restart it.
There are no error messages - I just get:
"Creating browse info file..."
and that's it.

Thanks in advance

David

Be sure that you have enough disk space - browse info files take a lot of space.
Install the latest service pack both for Visual Studio and Windows. Try to reinstall Visual Studio.

Before this just try Rebuild All.

As a quick-fix, you can alos turn off generation of the BrowseInfo... I've never found it really useful.

Hmm, that was foolish of me, not to try the service pack first.
Problems seems to be solved.

And a good idea by DanRollins too, although not necessary anymore.
