    LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file '/.exe'

    Suddenly I started getting this error below. I'm using visual studio 2010 professional and it worked fine till today. I get this error for everything. projects that used to compile perfectly before and also new projects that I've created to test what's wrong with it. I've also tried uninstalling, cleaned registers, reinstalling twice already. HELP PLEASE!
