Please compile this in DEBUG mode and trace through the steps.

When the program fails, copy the error message and paste it here.

If the program will not compile, please copy the error message you get from the compiler and paste it here so we can see it.

     Char *buf1 = "aaa", *buf2;int ptr;
      buf2=InputBox("Veri.","password","Default");
      ptr = strcmp(buf2, buf1);
         if (ptr >0 || ptr <0)
           {ShowMessage("Wrong! ");
            Application->Terminate();}
         else {};

  buf2=InputBox("Veri.","password","Default"); ????

I'm not familiar with AnsiString.
Try
Session->AddPassword((char *)secret)
