FIX: Makeimg crashes when an application is built with AppBuilder in Windows Embedded Compact 2013

This article describes an issue that occurs when an application is built with AppBuilder on Windows Embedded Compact 2013-based devices. An update is available to fix this issue. Before you install this update, all previously issued updates for this product must be installed.
Assume that you create a "hello world" application on a Windows Embedded Compact 2013-based device, and the Monthly Update (May 2015) is installed on the device. Incremental linking is enabled for this application. In this situation, when the project.bib file includes an application that's built by using AppBuilder, the makeimg process fails.
