Q62375: Fatal /nologo and /e Switch Interaction
Article: Q62375 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.20 | 1.20 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | buglist1.20 | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 22-JUN-1990 Using the /nologo switch in conjunction with /e switch can cause ILINK version 1.20 to fail. The problem will occur when an incremental link cannot be performed and the command specified by the /e switch is performed instead. If the /e switch is preceded anywhere on the command line by /nologo, then the link will fail. For example, the following command line ILINK /nologo /e "link hello;" hello.exe where hello.obj exists but hello.exe doesn't, will produce the following messages: Microsoft (R) Segmented-Executable Linker Version 5.10 Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp 1984-1990. All rights reserved. LINK : fatal error L1089: : cannot open response file ILINK : warning L4252: file '/e.exe' does not exist ILINK : performing full link ILINK : fatal error L1233: 'link' returned 2 Placing the /nologo switch after the /e switch on the command line will alleviate the problem. Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem with LINK version 1.20. We are researching this problem and will post new information here as it becomes available.
