Hi,

I'm using the 13.12 binary release with MinGW bundle.

For now I'm using the workaround with two compiler setups, one for lib and one for exe. Not ideal but it gets the work done.
Let me know if there's another version I can test. Would that be latest nightly?

Best regards
Emil

When the next release comes out likely in about a month or so; try it and post if your problem is fixed.

Edit: I just remember 15.12 RC1 has been released; please try that and see if it fixes your problem.

I am going to have to use the normal Watcom Compiler and see if it work OK; likely be several weeks before I learn enough to decide where the problem exists or even confirm positively what the problem is using the Watcom Compiler. From looking at the code it was never written to support DOS compilation.

Hello,

Unfortunately the problem is still present in 15.12 RC1. Setting up two separate compiler profiles (one for console executables and one for static libs) is still the workaround I have to use.

Best regards
