  • Getting Error in Hilo project
    2 Posts | Last post July 28, 2015
    • Error	1	error MSB6006: "cmd.exe" exited with code -1073741511.	E:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft.Cpp\v4.0\V120\Microsoft.CppCommon.targets	170	5	Annotator
    • When I built it today I had the same issue.  Modifying the annotator project VC++ directories for executable directories to point to my 7.1A SDK install alleviated the issue.
      (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1A\Bin;$(ExecutablePath))

    • I found in the latest Hilo source code (Updated 4/18/2011),  no file of Flickr.wsdl.h was included in the project. Should this file be generated by our own or it's just missing to be included?

    • FYI for others.  If you have Win7 x64, do not accept the default path for the SDK 7.1 installer. It uses the "Program Files" directory.  You must install the SDK to Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1  Finally, there are 4 projects within the Hilo solution.  Change the Platform Toolset to SDK 7.1 ONLY for the Browser and Annotator projects.  The Platform Toolset for the Common and Registration Helper projects MUST remain pointed to v100.
      The Hilo solution compiles and runs.  It's beautiful.  Can't wait to start learning from it. 
      Microsoft should "fix" the SDK installer to detect x64 systems and set the default installation path accordingly.  Instructions about how to change the Platform Toolset also need to be included on this page.

  • Missing wsutil
    1 Posts | Last post May 14, 2012
    • I installed Visual C++ Express, then I installed Windows SDK v7.0, then I downloaded and unpacked the Hilo project.  When I attempt to build it I receive an error message essentially stating that wsutil was not found and the build fails. I attempted to run wsutil from the SDK command prompt and I receive a similar message, wsutil doesn't exist. I attempted to run setenv from the SDK command prompt and was informed that VC++ is using SKD 7.0xxx. I searched for wsutil from the Windows search box and it also comes up empty. I am using Win7 Home Premium x64.
      Can anyone help me?  I'd really like to get the Hilo project running. 
      Thank you.

    • there is an you error when i'm trying to run it it shows: "cmd.exe" exited with code 9009 
      what should i do to run the program ?
    • Hi,
      Did you try running it as an Administrator?
      Or the files may be corrupt.
      Try to download and install again.
    • Hey,
      Try to open Properties for Annotator (right click) and select Configuration Properties --> General. Then set Platform Toolset to "Windows7.1SDK" (need to install Windows SDK 7.1 first).
      Good Luck
    • That's right.  It looks like a problem with running a command during build.
