If Release==Release Build Error

    Question

  • I'm a complete newby with repect to Visual Studio - I was brought up on VB6.

    With that said, I'm trying to make a small change to a VB project that one of my co-op students worked on.  When I try to compile, I get the following error:

    The command "If Release==Release C:\Users\...\compil32 /cc" c:\Users2\...\InstallerCompilers.iss" Exited with code 3.

    I used the QuickFind tool, and cannot find this code anywhere in the project.

    Can anyone tell me where to look?

  • Hi BorgWarnerNVH,

    Which version of Visual Studio do you use?

    According to your description, you open the VB6 project in a high version Visual Studio and make any changes in this project, is it right?

    Please try with following steps to troubleshoot this issue that can help us confirm whether this related to the project or the Visual Studio version.

    1. Upgrade your VB project with high version Visual Studio without do any changes.
    2. Build your VB project to check whether it can successful.
    3. Make the changes in your upgraded project and build again.

    If it builds successful in step 2, the problem should be related to the changes that you make. Please check your changes that you have done.

    If it build failed in step2, I'm afraid that this issue should be caused by the upgrade from VB6 to high version Visual Studio. Please refer to the document about Upgrade a Project from Visual Basic 6.0 which provide how troubleshooting upgrade issues.
