LC.EXE exists with an error

Today I experienced some strange error with LC.EXE of Visual Studio 2005. So far my project was always building just fine, but all over sudden I was getting an error, that LC.EXE was existing with code -1. So what the heck is that supposed to mean?

Well, after checking everything in my code, and what I did in the last couple of days.

So one or two hours later it came to me … the license.licx was referencing to an assembly that did not exist (anymore). After cleaning out the invalid assembly every worked like a charm again.
