Attachment #8566819 - Attachment description: patch → change MaxILKSize to 0x7FF00000
I should have mentioned this is happening with Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Express with all the latest Windows updates applied.

I think the intent of the fix for bug 1133384, was to ensure MaxILKSize was less than 0x80000000, so this patch should still resolve the issue there.
OH and Visual studio 2013 express is a supposed officially supported build environment.
Oh and also checking the compiler version is clearly NOT sufficient to determine the linker version.
