That's my trouble: I made some mess with my PC date, and compiled my project when the date was six monthes forward; now I've set the right date, but every time I compile DevStudio rebuilt every object file, the unchanged too (and takes so much time...).
How can I solve this (without changing the PC date)?
Thank everyone can help me

there is a utility out there called "touch" - borlandC has it for instance.
use "touch" on all the files so that the date is set back to today.

should be easy enough to find a freeware version.

try www.zdnet.com downloads section for starters...

regards,
mike.

Great!
I downloaded Touch32 from the address you gave me, and it works!!! It just has some trouble with access date of file, but DevStudio doesn't care about it.
It seems to works.
Thank you
