Hi Mark,

Yes, you will need the service pack before it works normally.

The service pack would normally be installed (after some time) by means of Windows Update.
It's better to do it manually.

I would advise also installing the .NET framework 4.51.
(.NET 4.0 will be installed with VS2010.)

Cheers,

Peter.

Subject: Visual Studio 2010 problem and solution

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:

>    Creating library Com.lib and object Com.exp Generating code 
> Finished generating code LINK : fatal error LNK1123: failure during 
> conversion to COFF: file invalid or corrupt

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.

Mark
