"COFF: file invalid or corrupt" .NET4.5 can break VS2010, fixed

After installing NTVS1.3 it failed to run complaining that .NET4.5 was not installed. After installing 4.5 it ran. Unfortunately, non-android builds started to experience a linker crash with the warning “LINK : fatal error LNK1123: failure during conversion to COFF: file invalid or corrupt”

Here is a discussion of how 4.5 can break VS2010 and a fix that worked for me: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/SRCTREEWIN-108

Basically, you need to grab a copy of C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\bin\cvtres.exe from a good install that was not broken by .NET4.5

hi corysama,
thank you for your sharing. .net4.5 the prerequisite for NTVS1.3.
