My LNK file is as follows

MAP WINFred.MAP
PERMIT_DUPLICATES
NOSIZEWARNING
DLL
LO C:\Fred.BETA\OBJ\*.OBJ
LO G:\Fred\BETA\RC\WINFredRC.OBJ
LO G:\Fred\BETA\DLL\FredWNTAB.DLL
LO G:\Fred\BETA\DLL\VERSION.DLL
LO C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DK2WIN32.DLL
LO G:\Fred\BETA\DLL\AVIFIL32.DLL
LO G:\Fred\BETA\DLL\MSPORTS.DLL
EXPORTALL
FILE WINFred

For many years now, this has not caused a problem.

All of a sudden, the LO C:\Fred.BETA\OBJ\*.OBJ statement comes back - in my MAP - with

*** Could not open: C:\Fred.BETA\OBJ\*.OBJ

The only clue I have is that this folder now has just over 1400 OBJ files.

Is this a problem ?

It could be but if it is then you may be running out of memory.

Is the failure delayed when you reduce the number of obj files in the folder?

Thanks Paul

I have removed a few OBJ that I know are not required and...SLINK works fine. Memory does not seem to be an issue, so I wonder if the number of items is the problem.

This may be the time to split the system into smaller DLLs ?

If your build stopped because of a limit on the number of OBJ files input to SLINK, you could combine a couple of hundred OBJ files into a static LIB file, and use the LIB file instead of those OBJ files. If this works, you will be able to use the same number of DLLs (1 ?) as at present.
