"System could not make the output file".
This occurs when I am testing a program and have to abort it.
Then make a change to the program and try to compile and
I then have to reboot the computer to get the compile and link to work



You'll commonly get that error if the .exe you are working on is still a running process.  Open task manager and end the process.


Thank you Satpro.
That has to be what the problem is.


It can also happen when using GoBug and the process is finished running, but the file is still in use by GoBug - in this case just close GoBug before the re-compile and link.
