    error PRJ0003 : Error spawning 'rc.exe'

    Hi,

    My application was building fine before but when I created a '.pan' file in my application to handle panics, it started giving error as "error PRJ0003 : Error spawning 'rc.exe' ".
    Now, it is continuously giving this error even if I removed this file. I have also included the file path for rc.exe file in the path variable of user and system but nothing working.

    Plz Help.

    And have you installed any application recently? This might been because of a missing or overwritten environment setting.

    [have you tried restarting your system? I suppose yes ;)]

    And have you also removed the reference to it?

    Hi,

    I have removed from any includes in other files. Also there is no mention to it in .mmp file. what are the references you are talking about.

    Can you send us the output near the error from the console when you are compiling?

    Well, for some reason Visual Studio calls the Windows resource compiler - that should never be called? Not sure what file types trigger that one, but apparently there is some file in your project that does trigger it, perhaps a file with an name like xx.rc or similar? You can find the offending file by looking at file properties, the one that has as a tool "Resource compiler tool" is the guilty party if my suspicion is correct.
