Article: Q43529 Product(s): See article Version(s): 4.00 4.00b 4.50 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | SR# S890411-6 B_BasicCom | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 14-DEC-1989 A program compiled with Microsoft QuickBASIC Version 4.00, 4.00b, or 4.50, with Microsoft BASIC Compiler Version 6.00 or 6.00b, or with Microsoft BASIC PDS Version 7.00 hangs if it is linked with LINK.EXE Version 5.02.05 using /E for EXEPACK. This version of LINK.EXE is bundled with Microsoft COBOL Versions 3.00 and 3.00a and is not meant to be used with products other than Microsoft COBOL. In general, we recommend that the linker provided with a product be used with that product. The linkers provided with QuickBASIC and with the BASIC compiler work correctly with those products. The linker provided is tested with the product during its development and may also contain features or options that are specific to that product.
