what files specifically do you mean by system files?

as God_Ares said you'd need the source files to trace into them ,only have to put them in your path.

Make sure that under the Compiler settings, check everything (except for Use Debug DCUs, I guess), then do a Build. It should then stop correctly (unless you do not have the VCL source in the first place?)
