Visual Studio cannot debug because <x> is not an EXE file

I am trying to port a compaq FORTRAN app to Intel v11.  No compilation error, the app runs from the cmd prompt.  There was a topic that is now closed but looked similar.  No luck.

Help would be appreciated

So what is the problem?

I cannot debug the app.  I uploaded a screen capture of the message.

Do a full rebuild and post the buildlog (a html file) which will show what has happened.

I already tried but saw nothing obviously wrong. Log attached with txt extension.

So it does not run under the VS IDE with either Debugging or Without Debugging?

Any possible settings under Properties > Debugging > Command that might be at play?

Nope.

I just tried a test program (same default settings) that uses the same libraries (that I suspected could give me trouble) but it works fine.  It looks like VS is choking on the size or complexity of the app.

It is, quite likely, too big.

I see that you are using /libs:static.   Can you try linking against the DLL libraries instead?  That should make your executable smaller.
