error MSB6006: "AL.exe" exited with code 128 RRS feed

  • Question

  • On trying to upgrad my build to MSBuild 3.5 and VS2008, I am getting the following error:

    (GenerateLocFiles target) ->
      C:\SX.V2SV0\tools\MSBuild\Targets\OfficeLive.Common.Targets(130,4): error MSB
    6006: "AL.exe" exited with code 128.


    Any ideas what's going on?

    This is caused by an installation problem -- perhaps caused by a previous 3.5 beta not being uninstalled correctly. If I remember correctly, it's because the correct alink.dll is not next to al.exe. If you have a working machine, you could try copying it there. Otherwise, you'll have to uninstall 3.5, cleanse as much as you can, and reinstall.


    There's probably steps somewhere on the web if you search for this message.
