Failed with fatal error LNK1181at the mfc samples

I do my first steps in OpenCascade and I failed at simple MFC-Samples.

My situation:
- Win XP SP 3
- Visual Studio.NET (version 7.1), tested with own projects
- logged on as an administrator

I loaded the actual win32 version of OpenCascade 6.3.0 down and installed it as an administrator on an partition D:\ :

Then I opened in the Visual Studio the example:

After starting the compililation I get the linker-failure:

fatal error LNK1181: Eingabedatei 'TKVrml.lib' kann nicht ge÷ffnet werden

fatal error LNK1181: inputfile 'TKVrml.lib' can not be opened

I processed the D:\OpenCASCADE6.3.0\ros\env.bat.
I get the same failure.

What is going wrong in such a simple thing ?

Thanks for your help !

after a little bit of frusted playing I solved that problem:

I changed the name of the folder :


to (!!!) :


After that I loaded


and rebuilded all projects new.

After that every single project works promperly.
