C+ Builder Linker Error

I am getting a linker error when compiling an application with Embarcadero C++ Builder XE10.1 .
The application is a 32 bit windows VCL application (Web application). I can usually fix the error by re-booting the PC and running the compiler before any other application but recently this doesn't fix the problem.
The PC is a Dell precision 7710 with an Intel i7 2.7 Ghz processor and has 32 GB of RAM. the operating system is Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.
Looking around on the web, the issue would appear to be a buggy Embarcadero Linker which isn't going to be fixed any time soon.
Is there any solution to this ?

I have added the following option in the C++ Linker Additional options:   -GHtds=0x0F000000 and have also checked the  "clear state before linking" box in the C++ linker advanced options, neither of which actions has had any effect.

Any help appreciated.

Provide your exact list of commands executed + exact errors emitted.

With this additional detail, likely someone can assist.

In the future, cut + paste text + wrap in CODE directive in comment menu.

This appears to be a problem with heap memory being overrun.

Likely fixes, pass a ilink32 (whatever that might be) an option to use a larger heap value during linking.

Best to post the entire command sequence + entire output of all messages emitted.

Also... ilink32 suggests you're doing a 32 bit link. This might or might not work on 32bit architecture. This depends on many factors, including if you've arranged to only link with 32bit system libraries or a 64bit library has leaked through to your linking.

Mixing 32bit + 64bit code during linking will produce various special effects, like oddball link errors.

Take a quick look at suggestions I made in my previous post about additional options to pass your link command.

Only someone with access to ilink32 + a duplicate of your runtime environment, can attempt to fix this problem, so likely best if you go through you ilink32 docs + run the experiments I suggested above.

Likely providing a larger heap space, as a linker option, will be the fix... or at least part of the fix...

I found the solution that works for me on the embarcadero discussions forum Embarcadero Discussion Forum
The relevant instructions are as follows :

1. download LAMARKER from the website http://cc.embarcadero.com/Item/30459
2. unzip it into C:\Windows
3. go to Administrator's command prompt
4. key in as C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\16.0\bin>lamarker.exe -M -Filink32.exe <ENTER>
5. done.

The issue is not due to the project source files but an issue with the linker.
