I got that error while trying to compile my hello.cpp beginnres program.  It
made a .obj file, but still had that error.  I went ahead and linked the .obj,
and it came up with quite a few link errors.  I ran the program (yes, I know it
was stupid to do so) and it froze my comp when I didn't close the error message
fast enough.  Any thoughts on this latest error?  Is it just a case of "User
error: Replace user"?

optlink doesn't do well with embedded + symbols in filenames. Try putting
\dm in the root directory, instead of off of \c++.

It WAS a replace user error after all...
