hi

I think this is a bug in Delphi 5, coz since I started using it and this error "Unable to invoke code complation due to errors in source code" appears......

notice that when the source of the unit "Small" this error doesn't appear but if the source "Big" it appears :)

I don't get it on any of our stupidly huge units (15000+ lines).  Try doing a build instead of a compile and see if you get any errors then.  Maybe the error is nested in a unit which doesn't need compiling.

had also no problem with this,
and if i get such a message,
then there was also a little syntax-error,
means the message was correct

the strange is that after i get this message i"m doing a compile and then its looks like the code competion works.
But after i make a small change (like just press enter) i re-get this message.
Any way its not a solution to make every time compile just to active the code completion for a short time.

Mm.  Sounds like a classic case of uninstall and reinstall again.  Something's definately gone wrong..

One case when this happens is when you invoke code completion on a unit which is not used by your currently active project (whether your project compiles or not).
