fatal error C1001: INTERNAL COMPILER ERROR (compiler file 'msc1.cpp', line 1794)

I tried to compile a project with Visual Studio 6 SP6 and got the following:

usbcore.h(18) : fatal error C1001: INTERNAL COMPILER ERROR
(compiler file 'msc1.cpp', line 1794)
Please choose the Technical Support command on the Visual C++
Help menu, or open the Technical Support help file for more information


Line 18 of usbcore.h contains the include directive:

18: #include "usbiface.h"


Empty or non-existing usbiface.h produces the same error. I commented this line and got the same error but for the next include file.

To sum this up: the compiler error occurs for each
#include
directive that refers to the common project headers.

I figured out what caused that error. One of the include paths (passed to a compiler with the /I switch) had a trailing backslash.

The compiler cmdline is: CPP /nologo /MT /W3 /GX /Zi /Od /I "$(ZLIB_PATH)" /I "..\headers"

and ZLIB_PATH had a trailing backshlash. Removing that backslash solved the problem.
