Please help.

Tanks in advance.
The issue does not appear to be in the JDE_CG section of the jde.ini file. Check the BSFN Build section. It should be as follows :

OptimizationFlags=/FD /Gz /O2 /Zi /MD /W4 /EHsc /Gy /Oy-
DebugFlags=/FD /Gz /Od /Zi /MDd /W4 /EHsc /Gy /D "_DEBUG"
CompilerFlags=/nologo /c
LinkLibraries=jdekrnl.lib jdel.lib jdenet.lib jdeipc.lib owver.lib jdeunicode.lib v_verify.lib xerceswrapper.lib xmlpublisher.lib

I had this exact same issue and it took uninstalling and reinstalling VS2008 and SP1 to fix it. Once I re-installed both VS2008 and then SP1, the "DoTheLink" error went away and the builds completed successfully. The overall issue I believe was that certain SDKs were needed that were installed that were upon the reinstall.
