Today’s computer hatred brought to you by INTERNAL COMPILER ERROR

Generally, I really love working with computers. I can’t imagine what else I’d do as a profession if I wasn’t doing what I do. However, there are some bugs on some days that just piss me off so much I need a place to vent. Good thing I have a blog.

Anyway, it looks like if you’re trying to compile things on Windows XP SP2 using Visual C++ with pre-compiled headers turned on and your code is hosted on a network drive hosted by samba, you’ll cause:

(compiler file ‘f:\vs70builds\3077\vc\Compiler\Utc\src\P2\p2symtab.c’, line 1609)

This is probably one of those bugs that is half samba’s fault and half VC++’s fault. That being said, I also found a report that looked similar, but with win2k and offline files.

  1. Thanks a bundle. I have been banging my head against this same problem for a while. Knowing it is a bug and not my code is a real nice break for me.

  2. I’m using Microsoft C compiler for my “mex” of Matlab, and experiencing the same problem. To overcome this error I’m compiling with “-g” switch. But I’m seeking the solution.
    The question is how I can set the compile settings through the Matlab.

  3. Thank you so much!
    I was trying ot compile cppunit on a samba network drive and – just as you did – I got sooo pissed off …
    – additionally there were plenty of:
    fatal error C1001: INTERNER COMPILERFEHLER
            (Compilerdatei ‘msc1.cpp’, Zeile 2701)
             Wählen Sie im Menü ‘?’ von Visual C++
             den Befehl ‘Software Service’, oder öffnen Sie die Hilfedatei für den Software Service, um weitere Informationen zu erhalten.
