LINK: fatal error LNK1123: failure during conversion to COFF: file invalid or corrupt
it wouldn't let me even compile the program.... I looked into the web and found out one simple thing:
1. go into project | properties | Configuration Properties | Manifest Tool and then make sure Embed Manifest is turned to No instead of Yes.
I did this and it worked perfectly... so my question is this:
Why does my project compile now that this simple project property is changed? What does this do? Will I run into problems if I continue to leave it turned to No?
Please let me know if you need any more information on this matter.
Thanks in advance!

I recently solved a problem by adding an exclusion to my virus scanner for my programming directory. It was screwing with the files as they were being compiled -- specifically the manifest generation part for some reason...
