LINK.EXE is a utility used in the creation of the EXE process. It is either missing or corrupt.

There should be two of them in Visual Studio, one in VB and one in VC++.

VB's is in: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\LINK.EXE
VC++ is in: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\Bin\LINK.EXE

You can try copying the one from VC++ to VB.

Actually, you have it slightly backwards. TASM as do all the other compilers, compile the source into binary modules. LINK links them together and with library modules into an EXE or library.

Otherwise, it was a very helpful post. Thank you for clarifying the fact that Link needs to exist on the computer.

Great! They deleted "Microsoft", so I'm arguing with myself! :)
