Consider the following scenario:
In this scenario, the build is broken. Additionally, you receive the following error message:
Unhandled Exception: System.InvalidOperationException: The environment block used to start a process cannot be longer than 65535 bytes. Your environment block is <’nnn’> bytes long. Remove some environment variables and try again.

NMAKE : fatal error U1077: C:\WINCE700\public\common\oak\bin\i386\SysgenMake.EXE: return code '0xe0434f4d'
When you include clone modules in an OS design, SysgenMake.exe checks the environment block size for all modules. This process occurs when the NMAKE/RES2RES process is called during the OS design build. For some modules, such as the Coredllhs.dll module, the environment block size increases beyond the maximum allowed size (less than 64 KB). This causes the build to break, and then the "fatal error U1077" error message is generated.
