Visual Studio 2008
Advises the operating system to load the program only at its preferred base address. If the preferred base address is unavailable, the operating system does not load the file.
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine.dll)
|/FIXED:NO is the default when building a DLL, and /FIXED is the default for any other project type.|
|When /FIXED is specified, LINK does not generate a relocation section in the program. If the operating system is unable to load the program at that address at run time, it issues an error message and does not load the program.|
