Compiler Error C3171

Error Message

'module': cannot specify different module attributes in a project

module attributes with different parameter lists were found in two of the files in a compilation. Only one unique module attribute can be specified per compilation.

Identical module attributes can be specified in more than one source code file.

For example, if the following module attributes were found:

// C3171.cpp
[ module(name="MyModule", uuid="373a1a4e-469b-11d3-a6b0-00c04f79ae8f", version="1.0") ];
int main() {}

And then,

// C3171b.cpp
// compile with: C3171.cpp
// C3171 expected
[ module(name="MyModule", uuid="373a1a4e-469b-11d3-a6b0-00c04f79ae8f", version="1.1") ];

the compiler would generate C3171 (note the different version values).
