You may see a link error when linking a very large DLL on Windows with Microsoft Visual Studio 2003.  The error will take the form:
      "Absolute symbol '@comp.id' used as target of DIR32NB relocation LINK"


Cause



This is a bug in the Visual Studio linker that occurs when you try to link a DLL that has more than 32,767 exports.


Action


See Microsoft article #831995 for more information ( http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;831995 )
