      Description

      Aras reported that after he installed SourceTree, his Visual Studio 2010 builds (aka 'work') all started failing with the error:

      LINK : fatal error LNK1123: failure during conversion to COFF: file invalid or corrupt

      This is described in this thread: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10888391/link-fatal-error-lnk1123-failure-during-conversion-to-coff-file-invalid-or-c

      And this one: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/da-DK/vssetup/thread/d10adba0-e082-494a-bb16-2bfc039faa80

      Both claim that Visual Studio SP1 fixes the issue, but Aras already had SP1 installed. He fixed it by uninstalling .Net 4.5 and re-installing .Net 4.0, but this means that SourceTree will no longer work.

      This is a major show-stopping issue, we cannot allow the install of SourceTree to break a developer's working environment.

      Note: this only affects C/C++ developers because the issue is in compilation of native resource files (.rc)
