You get this message becaus you're trying to use an uninitialized pointer, probably a pChar.

Do a Search|Find Error, and type in the address you got. If delphi manages to locate the line, then you at least know where it happens.

I'll need code samples if I shall be able to help you out more.

I tried you suggestion and could not find error.  Search/Find Error returned 'error address not found'.  I looked for uses claues that may have circular reffernces but found none.  I'll keep fool'in with it.  I may stumble accross the error.
