Long link times


Just recently (last day or two) my link times (a mixed mode VC++ project)
have gone up a lot. It was previously taking a minute or 2, but is now
closer to 10, and I don't think I've added anything to cause it. Watching
task manager I'm seeing that link.exe is taking very little processor time
(between 0 and 6%, but mostly hovering between 0 and 3%) and gradually
consuming memory. This happens while "Linking... " is displayed. After this,
I get a "LINK : warning LNK4075: ignoring '/EDITANDCONTINUE ' due to
'/INCREMENTAL:NO' specification" warning, which I've always had, and then
link.exe's processor usage jumps to 95%, though this stage seems to take
longer than it used to. Does anyone know of any possible causes of this? 10
minute link times are ridiculous on a 2.5 GHz machine, even if the (single)
project is fairly big.

Hi all I have used knowledge base article 112747 to improve my subforms performance. I am using Access 97. I have a main form where i put an extra textbox which concatenated TeamID WeekNum Weekday, ie value might be 15Monday. I then put in a field in my query behind my subform which held the same info and used these fields to link the mainform to the subform.

Hi, I have a vc++6 project I migrated to vc++7 .NET. If I only migrate without using managed extension, link step takes 8 seconds. If I check "use manage extensions" in project properties, link step takes 4 minutes. I use incremental link. Why such a difference? Thanks steph

Hi, Sorry to repost, but this is becoming aggravating, and causing me a lot of wasted time. I've got a reasonably large mixed C++ project, and after a number of builds (but not a constant number) linking (and sometimes compiling) becomes immensely slow, and task manager shows that link.exe (or cl.exe) is barely using any processor time, but an awful lot of RAM (around 150-200MB). I'm going to keep an eye on page faults since I can't...
