...one of the most highly
regarded and expertly designed C++ library projects in the
world. — Herb Sutter and Andrei
If you have several versions of Visual Studio installed and trying to build the library with Visual Studio 2010, the compilation may fail with linker error LNK1123. This seems to be a known problem caused by some conflict between Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4.5, which is installed with Visual Studio 2012.
The suggested solution is to upgrade Visual Studio 2010 to Visual Studio
2010 SP1 or overwrite
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual
Studio 10.0\VC\bin\cvtres.exe" with the one of Visual Studio
2010 SP1 or 2012.
