 I had seen some mention of that hot fix on the internet but not in enough locations or by enough people to really cement in my mind that was the problem. Only because I installed VS2010 updated to SP1 and compiled and didn't have a problem. My collaborator (on a different computer) did the same and had problems. But seems like the hot fix really was the problem. THanks for verifying.
