Default Error spawning cl.exe

Hello,
When I try to compile my files, even the example files of visual C++, I receive this error message : Error spawning cl.exe

Hello,

I think this is useful to you.

Check your path settings under Tools->Options->Directories.

Make sure the paths listed for the executable is correct for where you have
vcspawn.exe and CL.exe installed to.

You can also attach the <ProjecName>.plg file to this post. This is the
build log file, and it tends to have more information.

I'm having the same problems, and it seems to have come on all of a sudden, as I don't recall changing any of my previous settings. I have followed all the advice in karthik79_mca mail, but I'm still haveing the problem

u want to say that in directories and executible files must be directories where are cl.exe. and vcspawn.exe so like this

D:\VCPLIUS\VC98\BIN << there are cl.exe
D:\VCPLIUS\COMMON\MSDEV98\BIN << vcspawn.exe

and some others directories in here so everything is ok imho
where are theese diectories but then trying to compile program it says the same no effect

I've the same problem as above, yet my cl.exe and vcspawn.exe files are in the correct diretories and I still get this error. What else could cause this?

This error may come from a path structure not welcomed by vc.
Check that your path is clean (eg. no "-" in path names).
