Is there a virus scanner on your system?

If a compilation with Coco fails for unknown reasons, one possible cause can be a virus scanner. If the scanner for some reason considers the CoverageScanner as an unknown and dangerous program, it will stop it. The result can be an error message like this:

error MSB6006: "link.exe" exited with code -1073741790

The solution for this problem is to deactivate the virus scanner, or at least preventing it from considering CoverageScanner a dangerous program.
