The code below gives an error on  FindClose( rec );
rec is of type TSearchRec
The error : incompatible types integer and Tsearchrec
In the help i find that the parameter of Findclose should be of type Tsearchrec. What am i doing wrong and is there a solution for this  

for i := 0 to langs.Count - 1 do
      res := FindFirst( fullpath + '\*.RTS' , faReadOnly or faArchive , rec );
      while res = 0 do
         files.Add( fullpath + '\' + rec.Name );
         res := FindNext( rec );
      FindClose( rec );

FindClose is also an API call (the same name), but it's parameter is a handle, which is an integer, not a record.

You have to write then SysUtils.FindClose( rec ) instead.

Good luck, Matvey
