Fatal Errors LNK1123 and U1077 Related to Windows C++ Compiler

I'm trying to compile a simple model into a DLL file to run in a HIL simulation, and get an error during the process:

### Build procedure for model: 'Compile_Model_Example' aborted due to an error.

Initially I had thought that the error was showing due to C++ Express being in the "C:\Program Files" file and did not like the space in the folder name. I uninstalled the compiler and reinstalled it into a new folder with a name that did not contain any spaces. After restarting MATLAB and running mex -setup (no issues finding the installed compiler), the error still shows when attempting to Build.

I've read that this version of compiler might be choking on .rc files, and the solution is to install a C++ 2010 Express Service Pack to correct it, but I'm not entirely sure if this is related to my issue. I can at least give it a try in the meantime. Any help is appreciated to solve this issue.

Thanks!

From my reading at:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10888391/error-link-fatal-error-lnk1123-failure-during-conversion-to-coff-file-inval

it also sounds like an RC file issue. Did upgrading Visual Studio resolve it for you?
