  • Hi Shobin Mathew,

    Thanks for your post.

    Although I see one case which may related to your issue:


    It is hardly to decide where your thread belongs to.If it is the same error with the thread I pasted here.

    Please try the solution there especially this thread:

    "It seems that resgen.exe installed by some version of VS2010 may be corrupted. My solution is to copy the resgen.exe from a machine that does not have this resgen issue to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0A\Bin. And problem is gone. corflags indidates that 32bit flag is not set in resgen.exe which works."
