Visula D fails to build after Windows updates
Hi,

After a recent Windows update cycle the Visual D projects now fail to 
build - it can't find the D source files - the output from compiler is 
below.

===================================================================================

OPTLINK (R) for Win32  Release 8.00.12

OPTLINK : Error 118: Filename Expected
Path=C:\D\dmd2\windows\bin;C:\Program Files\Microsoft 
SDKs\Windows\v7.0\bin;C:\Program 
Files\GTK+-Runtime-3.4.2\bin;C:\D\dmd2\windows\bin;C:\D\dm\bin;c:\MinGW\;C:\Program

--- errorlevel 1
Building Debug\dgen.exe failed!

====================================================================================

This has occured on 2 PCs, one Vista and one Win7 straight after recent 
updates. Has this occured to anybody else and whats the fix for it?

Thanks.

Regards, Mike.

I don't know what the error would have to do with Windows update, but it 
might be caused by this:

Oops, didn't notice that this had already been mentioned in the other 
copy of the post :-(
