option enabled in File -> Preferences.

Godswill, the error is with the code.... Are you getting the same problem even when compiling a bareminimum sketch? Try the blink program for instance.

Also its not possible to help you with errors if you are not posting the code

i would recommend to update the arcuino ide or if you have updated then uninstall the arduino ide and remove all files left behind  by the arduino ide. Do a fresh installation and see if the problem is gone. mainly the error 1073741515 code comes because of some stray in the system files. please follow steps and see if it helps. i had faced this issue a long back and followed the above steps and it had gone.
