When building a Visual COBOL project the following error is produced:
LINK : fatal error LNK1248: image size (D3B7A000) exceeds maximum allowable size (80000000)
This is a limit of Windows not the compiler. The Microsoft linker has determined that the size of the output file will exceed the largest possible size for a program image. The largest possible size for a program image is 2 GB.
The solution is to reduce the size of the program image, for example this large array would cause the error, reducing the size of the occurs would resolve the problem.
