Linker error




I'm hoping this group might be able to provide some insight to the
problem I'm encountering. I appreciate in advance any feedback that is

We have been compiling our source code with the following
MS VS C++ 6.0
MS XP 2002 (sp1) desktops,
source control in CC (2003.06.00)
Symantec 8.1.1 (RTS)

Until now we have always used dynamic views, with local view storage,
and everything was building fine (I don't know the historical reason
for using the local view storage)

We are migrating to some newly developed tools, which require the
developers to use remote dynamic views. Considering the "local view
storage" to "remote" view change being the ONLY change involved, the
compile of a very specific subsystem/project is now failing (Error

After hours trying to debug the project makefile, reading MSDN
knowledge base and general google'ing, I haven't been able to come up
with anything specific. But then I remembered that real time virus
scanning can sometimes cause problems, so I disabled the RTS on my
desktop, and it worked!! Unfortunately, corporate policy requires us to
have the virus scan running, so I was looking for an alternate

Has anyone ever run into a similar problem? Again, I appreciate any
