Linker tools errors and warnings (LNKxxxx) in Visual Studio

Linker tools errors and warnings (LNKxxxx) in Visual Studio

Dealing with linker tools errors and warnings in Visual Studio? VC++ linker tools errors generally mean you have a problem compiling your code. And they can stop you from building your projects or even cause build errors.
In this article, learn about Visual Studio linker errors and warning codes that appeared when building C++ code in Visual Studio.


Linker tools errors

The LNKxxxx errors are produced when the C/C++ linker fails to find symbols required for linking within your code. The Cause: The C/C++ build process has several steps, including code generation and assembly build, where the compiler produces temporary files. Due to the nature of the build process, these temporary files don’t always get removed after they’re no longer needed.

The Linker tool messages (LNKxxxx) are not errors but warnings and can be safely ignored. When you know what the message indicates, the actual source of the problem may not be obvious, but it is usually easy to find with a few simple debugging techniques. In general, the LNKxxxx messages are related issues where the linker could not resolve symbols. These parallel references exist because, at some point in the development process, an object file or DLL line number was modified, which broke the exact coordination between debugging information and library code.
