First I'll admit that to load several items without testing each in turn is stupid, so please don't remind me of that. (I guess I'm too trusting with products that say 'nothing can go worng'.
Today I downloaded components from DelphiFreeStuff and from GExperts.
I installed these - TAlarm, TPlayWav, TExitWindows, TLog, TTrayIcon.
They installed without any (obvious) problems.
I also installed TGifImage (and added VCL40 because it said I needed it.).
I also compiled GExpert3 because the site said that with D3.0 I would have to download the source and compile it.
That failed because Delphi could not find QRPT30.DPL. (Perhaps if you're feeling generous you could also tell me where I can find it, the Borland site was no help.)
I'm now left with Delphi not able to compile anything. Not even my existing applications. I even started a new application with just a button on a form and even that wouldn't compile.
The error is "Cannot find SYSTEM.PAS".
I have found SYSTEM.DCU but that's as far as it goes.
Can you please tell me where I can find system.pas and where I need to put it ... please.
Or what I need to do to remove whatever is looking for system.pas ... please.
Please, please, I'm desperate ... time is ticking by and my dear old Delphi has been killed.
