Error: Unable to start Baja.lib after successfull build

Dec 25, 2012 at 10:24 AM

Hi there,

After downloading the code and setting up the build I was able to compile an build successfully. But when I run the code I get an error popup which says " Únable to start program Baja.lib".

I am confused for I have done everything to make this work. Can anybody help.

I am using Microsoft VS express for Win8 and my os is win 8 64 bit.

Hi Bageera,

When you hit F5 or Ctrl+F5 from within Visual Studio, Visual Studio attempts to run the 'StartUp Project' in the solution. In this case, the Baja project is marked as the StartUp. However, it does not produce an executable - instead, it produces Baja.lib. So, Visual Studio emits the error you are seeing.

To fix the problem, you need to right-click the Journal project, and select 'Set as StartUp Project'.
