I'm trying to get a very large Visual Studio 2013 solution to compile (100+ big projects). All of the projects are being compiled with the /fast flag. After waiting around 20-30 minutes for the solution to compile, the linker chokes with:
xilink: : error #10014: problem during multi-file optimization compilation (code 1)
I can see the RAM usage in Task Manager, increasing very quickly when linker starts running. It runs up to +2gb, and then drops back to where it was before. This is on a system running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit with 16gb of RAM and an Intel 3770.
I think I turned off the interprocedural optimizations with /Qip- and /Qipo-, so the complete flag listing is
/fast /Qpi- /Qipo-
Hopefully, that will let the solution compile and link (it's building right now).
Is there a way to let the linker use more RAM so the interprocedural optimization can be enabled?
