LNK1104: no file specification

As I browse the LINK errors, most posters with LNK errors have the problem:

LINK: fatal error LNK1104: cannot open "xxx.lib". So the file can be addressed.

In my case, the error message is always:

LINK: fatal error LNK1104:                         so I have no idea which file is missing.

Any setting I need to change to fix this difference?

Many thanks!

Can you give more information

Can you give more information about the problem that you are seeing?   For example, can you post the line you're using to link, or a build log?

          thanks -

Dear Lorri,

Dear Lorri,

I was using the VS (not command line) to build the project. The build log shows:

Linking...
Link /OUT:"Debug\MoorDynF.exe" /INCREMENTAL:NO /NOLOGO /MANIFEST /MANIFESTFILE:"E:\NWTC\MoorDynF\Debug\MoorDynF.exe.intermediate.manifest" /MANIFESTUAC:"level='asInvoker' uiAccess='false'" /DEBUG /PDB:"E:\NWTC\MoorDynF\Debug\MoorDynF.pdb" /SUBSYSTEM:CONSOLE /IMPLIB:"E:\NWTC\MoorDynF\Debug\MoorDynF.lib" lapack_win32.lib "Debug\slasrt2.obj" "Debug\fftpack4.1.obj" "Debug\dlasrt2.obj" "Debug\SingPrec.obj" "Debug\NWTC_Base.obj" "Debug\SysIVF.obj" "Debug\NWTC_LAPACK.obj" "Debug\NWTC_ScaLAPACK.obj" "Debug\NWTC_Library_Types.obj" "Debug\NWTC_IO.obj" "Debug\NWTC_Num.obj" "Debug\ModMesh_Types.obj" "Debug\ModMesh.obj" "Debug\ModMesh_Mapping.obj" "Debug\NWTC_Library.obj" "Debug\NWTC_FFTPACK.obj" "Debug\MoorDyn_Types.obj" "Debug\MoorDyn_IO.obj" "Debug\MoorDyn.obj" "Debug\MoorDyn_Driver.obj"
Link: executing 'link'
LINK : fatal error LNK1104:

MoorDynF - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)

I fixed it. I was using the Chinese version (MS official) of VS2012. I installed the English version and the message came back normal (so I can see which file exactly is the linker complaining about). Seem that the Chinese version VS is not well integrated with Fortran/or other linker.

Thank you very much!
