I have a problem building the source of qgis1.8.0 in Windows 7 64bit. i am trying to follow this instructions in this page: http://hub.qgis.org/wiki/17/Building_QGIS_from_Source?version=2#Building-on-Windows the dependencys are all installed succesfully and the generation of qgis1.8.0.sln is succesful too. but in the release solution configuration build, always Microsoft Visual C++ crash without problem report.

Anybody know how to fix the problem with Microsoft Visual C++?


It's a bug with the MS C++ linker. Do a search for the error number and there is a hotfix for it.

  • Do you know how to find error number outside MS C++? – fkili mohamed Oct 18 '13 at 13:50
  • There should be a error code in the console when it crashed, just google for that. – Nathan W Oct 18 '13 at 14:08
