Fatal Error Question

I am restoring Delphi 4 after a hard disk crash. When I compile some projects I get the error "File Not Found UCrpe32.dcu". This file comes from Crystal Reports which is not used in any of my projects (I removed it years ago). Nowhere in  any of the .pas (or any other files) is CRPE (Crystal) being used. It is not in any "Uses" statements or anywhere else yet the compile keeps looking for it. Has anyone run into anything like this?

It must be used in one of your units, otherwise Delphi would not attempt to look for it.
Possibly you have an old .dcu file somewhere in the search path which was compiled with this dependency. Check your library path and search path; search your hard disks and delete all unneeded .dcu files.

Thanks TOndrei. You hit the nail on the head. I was naive enough to think that Removing from Project actually did just that.
