.NET 4.5 requirement breaks VS2010 x64 C++ compiler - with solution


(Menno Deij - van Rijswijk) #1

Today I thought I’d give Rhino WIP a spin. Installed .NET 4.5 Framework and Rhino 6 WIP.
Unfortunately, installation .NET 4.5 breaks the VS2010 C++ compiler with error LNK1123 - unable to convert to COFF The problem is related to cvtres.exe which is broken after installation of .NET 4.5

This is a known problem: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2757355

The solution I used is described here https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/topic/391305
