I thought we passed /DYNAMICBASE:NO directly , but I don't see that in the code. A look at the git logs shows that we disabled it in 7f3e17b48 by emitting <RandomizedBaseAddress>false</RandomizedBaseAddress> in the MSBuild project. That'll pass /DYNAMICBASE:NO to the linker. See https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb384887.aspx It's rather better than the old registry hack, but it's a compat option we're likely to lose at some point. -- Craig Ringer http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
