problem with linking a CUDA project as a static library

Hi all,

I am migrating a visual studio 2008 solution to 2010 and got stuck at linking the Cuda project as a static library. The expected .lib file is not being generated for some reason while all .cu.obj files are there and there are not errors reported in the output window. I searched a bit online and
this link from NVIDIA forums is the only reference that i could find, but it has no solution to my problem. Did anyone have a similar issue?

Thanks in advance
