    Hi Jony,


    Just checking, are you using Visual Studio 2010 or Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1?  I'm on SP1 and I'm not seeing this link error.  And are you using the Premiere Pro CS6 release 2 SDK, with the Visual Studio 2010 sample projects?

    This topic is a bit old, but I have the same problem. My english isn't perfect so I don't understand everything in the pdf guide.

    I just started, and I would like to build the Export project, which is in the Exemple directory. (I took the cs6 premiere pro release 2)

    I did this part of the guide : "On Windows, to specify where you want the built plug-ins to go, set a user environment variable

    (right-click My Computer > Properties > Advanced > Environment Variables > User variables)

    called PREMSDKBUILDPATH to the desired path (e.g. “C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\

    Plug-ins\[version]\MediaCore\”)", and I also put the exemple directory on  “C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\Plug-ins\[version]\MediaCore\”.

    Then, I opened the SDK_Exporter file with visual studio 2010 (from “C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\Plug-ins\CS5\MediaCore\Examples\Projects\SDK_Expor ter\"), and tried to debug it with the x64 debugger.

    I obtained this error : "LINK : fatal error LNK1123: failure during conversion to COFF: file invalid or corrupt"


    May someone help me to build this?

    Thanks for your help!
