  1. This is a bin directory, not a file.
  2. Search for bin in the installation directory of your VisualStudio.

    There should only be one bin directory.
  3. I say well in the installation directory of your VisualStudio, it is not necessarily c:programs\microsoft visual studio8\ .

  1. I did a search but there are several bin directories that appear,
  2. Note: I need to do this in order to start working in my Glomosim simulator.
  3. I did a search on the internet and they choose the path according to what you want to do.

  1. I do not know it is the first time that I use visual c++ and I do not even know how the simulator really works I just followed the installation steps, the path of the simulator is good I did it remains the visual c++

    I think it is the compiler because there is a step after that says:

    for compiling the simulator must be done……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

  2. I wanted to know something I am on vista and instead of program files I have a folder named program files as you may have noticed but when I want to install something and I choose the directory I have program files which looks so for the path what should I write program files or program files??
  3. It’s the same with W7. In fact, the name Program Files is localized for each version: it will be another name for the Croatian version, another one for the Chinese version, etc. When you specify a path, Program Files must be used. To make sure: since Win4 (95, NT4), an environment variable stores the folder where the programs should be installed. This environment variable is %PROGRAMFILES%. You can use it to define your folders.

  1. Me, on a machine with VS2005 and VS2008 I have a lot of them :

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Shared\VSA\8.0\VsaEnv

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Shared\VSA\9.0\VsaEnv

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0Common7IDE

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Team Tools\Performance Tools

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\bin\amd64

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\bin\amd64
  2. Normally, with VS2005, we do not directly call cl.exe.

    If you want to compile from the command line, remember to use the Visual Studio 2005 Command Prompt menu item in the VS2005 Start menu tree.

    By going through this menu, you have a console with correctly initialized environment variables.

  2. I want to install vs2005 to see, in your opinion I uninstall vs2008??or should I leave them both? From what I understand, you’re working with both of them.

  1. It is perfectly possible to work with both installed.

    But installing one isn’t going to fix the other.
  2. Do you compile, yes or no on the command line?

  1. Actually I have to work with a simulator and to create the .exe I have to execute a .dat file and that’s where the error appears.
  2. Compile in command line or not I don’t know yet because the simulator is not ready.

  2. Compile in command line or not I don’t know yet because the simulator is not ready.
  3. To run cl.exe, whether on the command line or otherwise, you must be able to find mspdb.dll. When you use the IDE, it’s already done. Otherwise, you must specify your repertoire in the PATH : A:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE for VS9, to be adapted for other versions.
  4. You can add it in the global variables (Computer > Properties > Advanced system settings > Advanced system settings > Environment variables): this way, the file will be accessible from anywhere. If you use several versions of VS, it is not recommended, since the versions of the files used are different between VS versions.

  1. That’s the point of going through the Start Menu>M$VS2008>VS Tools>VS Command Prompt

    This launches a console after running the bat that updates these environment variables.

    This way, you don’t mess up my machine configuration and the environment variables always correspond to the version of VS you want to use.

    it works no more problems with cl.exe, but I still can’t create my executable I must have made a mistake somewhere!!
