I found the same thing as well - it seems to be an issue with the newest version of .NET.

When building base on 64-bit windows, I install .NET 4.0, then the Win7 SDK to get VS2010 (and the necessary 64bit compilers, for some reason these are not included with VS.).

Folks,

We recently installed some Windows Updates on our machines, and found that Visual Studio 2010 then failed to build DLLs when building EPICS base, for example:

Andrew Johnson found a Web page discussing this problem, which contained the solution.

The solution is to install Visual Studio 2010 SP1.  I am not sure exactly which Windows Update caused the problem, but it may be an update to .NET.

I'm posting this to save others needing to rediscover the solution.
