That error message indicates that your PATH variable is not setup correctly. LINK is an executable that is part of Visual Studio and you need to make sure your Abaqus cmd window has the proper PATH variable setup.
Also, you might want to check that Abaqus checks the compiler versions that you have installed. I don't recall which compiler versions are recommended. (It is often possible to use more recent versions but it may take some effort to make it work).
