The most common reason for the linker (LNK9038) not to be able to produce an image is because one or more of the input files (modules) to the linker was not compatible with the safe exception handlers feature. A common reason for a module to not be compatible with safe exception handlers is because it was created with a compiler from a previous version of Visual C++. And these may created the error LNK2019.
After reference the latest lib, I still have errors related to the IMEX20.LIB, my coworker told me that he got "imex20.lib" from older version ""Conduit Development Kit". That is the reason I download the latest release; however, I could not find IMEX##.LIB at all in the 6.0.1 release.
