How to fix Delphi error message program or unit recursively uses itself?

I'm getting the following error message:
[Fatal Error] Program or unit 'ImageDisplay' recursively uses itself.

I tried to "Build" the project, but that did not work.

The program is an automation server with the following pas files:

ufrmImageDisplay.pas -- main form, see image in zip file
ufrmMagnify.pas --  this is a popup window on the main form, see "flying magnifier" on image in zip file.
ImageDisplayIntf.pas -- automation server module where methods can be called.
ImageDisplay_TLB.pas  -- defined methods for external programs to call.

The attached zip file contains the complete pas files, dpr and a screen shot of the program.

Geert GruwezOracle dbaCommented:
rename you dpr unit to something else

you are using a library ImageDisplay allready in ImageDisplay_TLB.pas

if you really want to name your exe file ImageDisplay.exe
you can do this afterwards.
