Error_1_error LNK1104: cannot open file 'LIBCMT.lib'_ RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have downloaded VS Express With Update 2 RC, in order to add a new Windows Phone project into an existing Windows Store project. Unfortunately, compiling soon after re-targeting my project to Windows 8.1, I got the following error.

    Error 1 error LNK1104: cannot open file 'LIBCMT.lib'

    I have searched a lot the internet, including this forum, but could not solve this issue. I also copied the lib from 2012 to 213 folder, but failed as well. I also deleted VS 2012, then VS 2013, then re-installed VS 2013. But all failed.

    Will appreciate your any help or information very much.

    My PC is Windows 8.1 Pro, 64 bit.

    Thank you very much!

  • Windows Store apps and Windows phone projects only support using DLL-based versions of the CRT (/MDd /MD).

  • Hi, many thanks.

    But where does the error message come from? I can not find out where I use this file. Furthermore, the project was correctly compiled before re-targeting. 

    How to remove this lib without error. I add command "/NODEFAULTLIB:libcmt.lib", but failed again.

    Any further help?
