Hi Nalini,

Nowadays the main culprit for inconsistencies between Windows and Linux is the ‘long’ data type, which is 32-bit in 64-bit Windows (at least with MSVC) and 64-bit in Linux. Not sure if this is the case here or not.

Silent production of an invalid TIFF file would of course mean a bug which should be fixed. As others have explained, the fix might be an error return with “strip too large”.

Regardless of above, writing multi-gigabyte strips is not a good idea and should be avoided even if it worked.

Cheers
