LNK1104: cannot open file 'LIBC.lib'

If upgrading a C++ project from VS2003 to VS2005, you might run into this error. LNK1104: cannot open file ‘LIBC.lib’

I resolved it by doing the following:

Project->Properties->Configuration Properties->Linker->Input

Ignore Specific Library: libc.lib

I guess VS2003 has there by default, from what I have been reading.
