Error: Unresolved external: FPCRT


This will be a quickie. If you get the following error while building (linking phase) your solution in WinCE 6.0 Platform Builder in Windows x64: Error: Unresolved external: FPCRT
You need to apply the execute the following statement in your console:

regln-x64.exe "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Platform Builder" "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Platform Builder"

regln-x64.exe is a command line tool that allows registry symbolic links.

The above error comes from the fact that our ‘beloved’ Platform Builder doesn’t play very nice with newer systems (x64). Above command line also solves the problem with remote tools that might not work.
