LNK1123: failure during conversion to COFF

I need help trying to fix the following error message:

1>------ Build started: Project: Starting_square, Configuration: Debug Win32 ------
1>LINK : fatal error LNK1123: failure during conversion to COFF: file invalid or corrupt
========== Build: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========

I am have a Win 7, 64-bit Win computer and followed the Guide to Installing OpenGL for Windows, through the download section of at www.sumantaguha.com. I installed Visual C++ 2010 Express, glew, freeglut and glext.h files in the suggested places. I then used the Property Pages of Visual C++ to indicate where to find the added include and library files. I tried running the following sample code, for which I will only show the first few lines. Thanks for helping me to get started.

// square.cpp
// OpenGL program to draw a square.
// Sumanta Guha.

#ifdef APPLE

include <GL/glew.h>

include <GL/freeglut.h>

include <OpenGL/glext.h>


include <GL/glew.h>

include <GL/freeglut.h>

include <GL/glext.h>

#pragma comment(lib, “glew32.lib”)

// Drawing routine.
void drawScene(void)

I was able to solve the “LNK1123: failure during conversion to COFF” by installing
Visual C++ 2010 service pack 1

Hopefully this may be of help to other beginners.
