    I have converted a project from VC++ 6.0 to VC++ 2010, and these are the steps I went through when I compiled the project:

    • Clean Solution
    • Rebuild Solution or
    • Build Solution (The 1st time)

    Here is the error I get when I follow those steps above:

    error MSB3073: The command "regsvr32 /s /c "C:\SourceControl\MyProject\.\Debug\MyProject.dll" echo regsvr32 exec. time > ".\Debug\regsvr32.trg" echo Execute mtxrereg.exe before using MTS components in MTS

    :VCEnd" exited with code 3. C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft.Cpp\v4.0\Microsoft.CppCommon.targets 183 6

    However,  immediately after getting that error where I do just a "Build Solution" ONLY I get Build succeeded

    Under Project > Properties > Configuration Properties > Custom Build Step I have Command Line:

    regsvr32 /s /c "$(TargetPath)" echo regsvr32 exec. time > "$(OutDir)regsvr32.trg" echo Execute mtxrereg.exe before using MTS components in MTS

    Does anyone know why this happens and how I can resolve it?

    NOTE:  I do have VS 2010 set to "Run As Administrator"

    Thanks
