    fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'mfc42d.lib'

    I need to edit a program.
    The source code is in Microsoft Visual C++.

    So I tried express edition, and I get this error.

    After searching forums I found out that I needed the full professional edition.

    So I ordered the 90 Day Trial of Visual Studios 2005 Professional Edition.

    After installing(FULL install), I ran, and wow! same error!

    I've downloaded SDKs but all they have is 64 bit mfc42d.lib files, Using these just gives me a compatibility error. I need the 32bit/x86 junks.

    Anyone know how to fix this, or where to find this file? It's not on the computer or DVD, I've searched.

    I'm so stuck >_<

    Thank You,
    Dave
