I have Visual Studio 2005 installed. I tried to compile MFC80.DLL by typing the following lines in command prompt:

        cd C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\bin
        vcvars32.bat
        cd C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\atlmfc\src
        nmake /f atlmfc.mak MFC LIBNAME="MFC80"

The compiler runs for about 20 minutes and this is the error message that appeared at the end:

        Microsoft (R) Program Maintenance Utility Version 8.00.50727.42
        Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.

                if not exist INTEL\$udll.w mkdir INTEL\$udll.w
                link.exe @C:\DOCUME~1\james\LOCALS~1\Temp\nm1C2.tmp
        LINK : fatal error LNK1256: ALINK operation failed (80040414) : Error reading key file 'finalpublickey.snk' -- The system cannot find the file specified.
        NMAKE : fatal error U1077: '"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\BIN\link.exe"' : return code '0x4e8'
        Stop.
        NMAKE : fatal error U1077: '"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\BIN\nmake.exe"' : return code '0x2'
        Stop.
        NMAKE : fatal error U1077: '"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\BIN\nmake.exe"' : return code '0x2'
        Stop.

I'm wondering if anyone knows how to avoid this error?

Thanks!!

finalpublickey.snk contains strong name for this library. If Microsoft doesn't provide this file, it is impossible to build this Dll.
Make search in the src directory for ".snk" word. You will find two files with "finalpublickey.snk" string. Try to remove this string and build again. But even in this build succeeds, I think that resulting library cannot be used, because it doesn't contain strong name.

Thanks for your help ~

I tried removing all lines with the .snk words but still could not compile it. However, I got around the problem and I don't need to compile the library anymore. =)
