Q40362: Programs LINKed with Incorrect Version of LINK.EXE May Hang
Article: Q40362 Product(s): See article Version(s): 4.00 4.00b 4.50 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | SR# S890106-58 B_BasicCom | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 15-DEC-1989 Programs developed in a particular version of Microsoft QuickBASIC or Microsoft BASIC Compiler may yield unpredictable results during run time if they are LINKed with a version of LINK.EXE other than the version that was shipped with the product. The behavior where a program runs correctly in the QB.EXE environment but performs incorrectly or hangs in the .EXE executable version may be the result of using an older or NEWER version of LINK.EXE. This information applies to Microsoft QuickBASIC Versions 4.00, 4.00b, and 4.50, Microsoft BASIC Compiler Versions 6.00 and 6.00b for MS-DOS and MS OS/2, and Microsoft BASIC PDS Version 7.00 for MS-DOS and OS/2.
