    When I opened the solution on VisualStudio 2005 and Build the solution we are getting the following error.
    "Error    1    fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'build\tmp\fwBase_debug_shared_32\fwBase.dll'    fwJPEG"

      Please go to into the Tools->Options->Projects and Solutions->Build and Run and set the max number of threads to be used for parallel builds to be 1. If not, Visual Studio tries to invoke two (or more) SCons builds in parallel on some machines, leading to some of the builds failing since SCons would build the fwBase library first for every project if it isn’t already built.

       
    • SCons already takes care of the threading, so despite this change (changing threads down to 1), you'll still be getting full multi-threaded builds!

       
    • maybe because the FwHeaderConvert_win.exe is not executable?
