  --base_file <basefile>
  --file-alignment <size>
  --heap <size>
  --image-base <address>
  --major-image-version <number>
  --major-os-version <number>
  --major-subsystem-version <number>
  --minor-image-version <number>
  --minor-os-version <number>
  --minor-subsystem-version <number>
  --section-alignment <size>
  --stack <size>
  --subsystem <name>[:<version>]
