The ilk file extension is associated with Microsoft Visual Studio. The .ilk files are used for incremental link files.

When linking incrementally, LINK updates the .ilk status file that it created during the first incremental link. This file has the same base name as the .exe file or the .dll file, but has the ILK file extension. During subsequent incremental links, LINK updates the .ilk file. If the .ilk file is missing, LINK performs a full link and creates a new .ilk file. If the .ilk file is unusable, LINK performs a nonincremental link.
