/MACHINE (Specify Target Platform)

/MACHINE:{ARM|EBC|X64|X86}

Remarks

The /MACHINE option specifies the target platform for the program.

Usually, you don't have to specify the /MACHINE option. LINK infers the machine type from the .obj files. However, in some circumstances, LINK cannot determine the machine type and issues a linker tools error LNK1113. If such an error occurs, specify /MACHINE.

  1. Open the project's Property Pages dialog box. For details, see Set C++ compiler and build properties in Visual Studio.

  2. Click the Linker folder.

  3. Click the Advanced property page.
