SYMPTOMS

I receive the following linker error when I link my RTX166 program.

*** ERROR 124: INTERRUPT NUMBER ALREADY USED

What causes this message and how can I correct it?

CAUSE

This message is caused when the linker detects that there are two interrupt service routines for the same interrupt trap.

RESOLUTION

Refer to the Interrupt Procedures section of the linker MAP file and look for interrupt procedures with the same interrupt number:

INTERRUPT PROCEDURES OF MODULE:  vsfd (MAIN)

As you can see in the above listing,

The NMI_trap, STKOF_trap, and STKUF_trap interrupt service routines are created when you include the TRAPS.C file from the c166lib directory. Remove this file from your project and re-compile your program.
