LNK1112: module machine type 'X86' conflicts with target machine type 'x64' in Visual Studio RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

       I have a project that will not compile for release. I read posts like this, but could not find a solution that works for me.

    1. my machine type is x64
    2. my configuration in project manager is x64
    3. paths are questionable, for linker they look like this:
    4. I looked for AdditionalOptions in vcxproj files but section is not present in any of them

    Projects are created for VS2017, but I am opening them in VS2019 while they use installed toolset for VS2013.

    Project uses WDK 7.

    Error message I receive is:

    LNK1112 module machine type 'X86' conflicts with target machine type 'x64' [...] \MSVCRT.lib(MSVCR120.dll)

    Thanks in advance

  • I changed $(VCInstallDir)lib\$(PlatformTarget); to $(VCInstallDir)lib\amd64 and it works now.
