LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file ‘LIBC.lib’

Problem: Building the your sample VC6-lib static project with VS2008 did not succeed due to this following link error.
LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file ‘LIBC.lib’

Solution:

It is advisable for your development team to ignore the libc.lib by following steps below:
In Visual Studio Menu-> Project->Properties->Configuration >
properties->Linker->Input->Ignore Specific library -> Add libc.lib

This is because our library compiled in VC6, and it use default library libc.lib.

For Visual studio v2005 and above version, due to it abandon single thread
library, libc.lib is one of it. That’s why we need to ignore it.
