SYMPTOMS

You use the Microsoft Common Object File Format (COFF) Binary File Editor (EDITBIN.exe) to set the base address of your application executable file by using the /REBASE option. When you specify an invalid base address, no error message is returned. You expect to receive an error message that is similar to the following:
LINK : fatal error LNK1175: failed to /REBASE test.dll

CAUSE

This problem occurs when Editbin calls the Image Help Library (Imagehlp.dll). The library does not return the error code when the REBASE operation fails. This problem does not occur in Microsoft Windows Server 2003. However, this problem occurs in earlier versions of Microsoft Windows.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
