- Microsoft LINK for OS/2 5.01.21
This article was previously published under Q50702
LINK Version 5.01.21 does not support the combination of using the /PACKCODE switch and having code segments declared as IOPL (i.e., as having I/O privilege).
When combining segments as directed by the /PACKCODE option, LINK 5.01.21 will combine the IOPL segment(s) with other segments that do not have I/O privilege. The result is an invalid executable that returns the system error SYS1059 when it is invoked.
The lack of ability to combine these options is a limitation of this particular linker version. LINK Version 5.03 allows the combination of /PACKCODE and IOPL segments without a problem.
