Coff file format for '*.o' is out of date or invalid
Important MPLAB C18 and MPLAB IDE Compatibility Note
MPLAB versions - v7.22
Compiler versions - C18 v3.00
There has been a change in the COFF file format starting with MPASM v5.00 and MPLINK v4.00, which is being shipped with MPLAB IDE 7.22 and C18 v3.00.
If users are not aware of this change, they could inadvertently cause an incompatibility between the assembler/linker and compiler tools.
Below is a matrix of scenarios that may help in keeping track of tool compatibility.
Information regarding the change of the COFF file format can be found in the MPLAB IDE/C18/MPASM/MPLINK readmes.
The error message that will be received will be similar to:
MPLINK 4.00, Linker
