nmake fatal error U1077

So, I was getting this error:

Microsoft (R) Program Maintenance Utility Version 6.00.8168.0
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp 1988-1998. All rights reserved.

link RasBaud.obj Tapiinfo.obj kernel32.lib user32.lib rasapi32.lib tapi
32.lib -out:RasBaud.exe
link: too many arguments
Try `link --help' for more information.
NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'link' : return code '0x1'

At first I thought I was running out of virtual memory, but several reboots bore that out as a false assumption.

Turns out the problem was that I had installed cygwin before I had installed Visual Studio 6. Due to path ordering I was getting gnu link not win32 link
