I've been having this annoying problem for a while now..almost to the point I'm scared of pushing that execute-button in VC6 :)
Still as a very very beginner in programming, only SOMETIMES when I press the compile/building OR execute button, VC6 (under XP Pro) hangs while displaying or "linking...", or "creating browse info file..." or "Relinking while applying changes (etc)..."; the building button at that time remains pushed (even when I didn't press it myself beforehand, this is happening when having pressed either one of the above buttons beforehand), and whenever I'm press the stop build button, there's no reaction, it remains pressed, and the only way out is for me the Ctrl-Alt-Delete solution. I have formatted my pc recently because I had this similiar problem before already while I was programming in C++ (now I'm programming in MFC) in the hope that would solve the problem, but no it's back here to stay again... The annoying thing for me is I really don't know what triggers it because only sometimes it hangs, and sometimes not..rebooting and running only VC6 are no solutions either. Is this a corrupt dll-related problem or so? I have no idea, can anyone please help me out here?
