Cannot load evaluator : Comp32p.dll in Delphi 6

Hi,

I am using Delphi 6 Enterprise, and having been using for a couple of months now, and all has been OK.

The last week, I have been getting an error re: cannot load evaluator : Comp32p.dll whenever I run a Delphi App through Delphi.

I found a possible solution via the Internet, which said to change a value assigned to [HKEY_CURRENT_USER]\Software\Borland\Debugging\6.0\Evaluators - Comp32p.dll to 1 within the Registry.

I checked this, and it is already set to 1. I then checked for the file Comp32p.dll on my hard disk, which does not exist.

I therefore deleted the line with the Comp32p.dll from the Registry, but it keeps reappearing.

I have not installed any apps within the last couple of months, and so am a bit stumped.

If anyone could offer some assistance, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I found comp32p.dll in my <Common Files>\Borland Shared\Debugger\Bin directory which is also listed in my environment PATH variable.

See if you can find it in that directory (if not I think you'll find it on your Delphi CD); make sure that the directory is included in your PATH.

Try to restore the registry setting to the previous state.

Another idea: it's also possible (if you have more versions of Delphi/C++ Builder installed) that the other product(s) have their own comp32p.dll installed somewhere else (e.g. BCB5\Bin) and that directory is in your PATH before yours; that could have the effect that Delphi is trying to load the (incorrect) other product's comp32p.dll. Check this and make sure that your <Common Files>\Borland Shared\Debugger\Bin is in the PATH before others.

TOndrej,

I do not have the file comp32p.dll ANYWHERE on my hard disk, and am unable to find on the Delphi CD. Also, I have never installed C++ Builder on my pc, as I do not have it, and I only have Delphi 6 on my pc, no other version.

It's installed together with the Remote Debugger Server.
You didn't find it on the CD because it's compressed in the setup .cab files.
Just install Remote Debugger Server from your CD and all should be fine.
