Delphi Not Using Project Settings in Compile

We are running Delphi 2007 Enterprise on Windows XP SP3.  I recently replaced my computer so I reinstalled Delphi.  Our company uses roaming profiles so all of my Delphi settings were applied to this new installation.  But, when I went to recompile some of our software, I got error messages about Delphi not being able to find certain DCUs.  The DCUs it could not find were based on units that are in the project search path and as I normally do a build all, the compiler should have found and recompiled the DCUs.  So I created a simple application and declared a 3rd party unit in the project source file (ExceptionalMagic in this case).  I tried to compile the program and got the error "[DCC Error] BuildAllTest.dpr(7): F1026 File not found: 'ADSISearch.dcu'".  

After toying with various settings for a couple of hours, I finally just uninstalled Delphi, manually removed any traces of it from the file system and registry and reinstalled from scratch.  I opened the little program I created and tried to compile it and got the same error.

So, I looked at the Target Core Compile command and this is what I have:
c:\program files\codegear\rad studio\5.0\bin\dcc32.exe 
-B 
-I"c:\program files\codegear\rad studio\5.0\lib";
  D:\Source\Delphi\\Imports;
  "c:\program files\codegear\rad studio\5.0\Imports";
  "c:\program files\codegear\rad studio\5.0\Lib\Indy10";
  D:\Source\Delphi\Common\Dcp;
  "c:\program files\codegear\rad studio\5.0\RaveReports\Lib" 
-LED:\Source\Delphi\Common\Bpl 
-LND:\Source\Delphi\Common\Dcp 
-O"c:\program files\codegear\rad studio\5.0\lib";
  D:\Source\Delphi\\Imports;
  "c:\program files\codegear\rad studio\5.0\Imports";
  "c:\program files\codegear\rad studio\5.0\Lib\Indy10";
  D:\Source\Delphi\Common\Dcp;
  "c:\program files\codegear\rad studio\5.0\RaveReports\Lib" 
-R"c:\program files\codegear\rad studio\5.0\lib";
  D:\Source\Delphi\\Imports;
  "c:\program files\codegear\rad studio\5.0\Imports";
  "c:\program files\codegear\rad studio\5.0\Lib\Indy10";
  D:\Source\Delphi\Common\Dcp;
  "c:\program files\codegear\rad studio\5.0\RaveReports\Lib" 
-U"c:\program files\codegear\rad studio\5.0\lib";
  D:\Source\Delphi\\Imports;
  "c:\program files\codegear\rad studio\5.0\Imports";
  "c:\program files\codegear\rad studio\5.0\Lib\Indy10";
  D:\Source\Delphi\Common\Dcp;
  "c:\program files\codegear\rad studio\5.0\RaveReports\Lib" 
--no-config   BuildAllTest.dpr   

Open in new window


In the directories/conditional settings of my project I have the search path set to "D:\Source\Delphi\Components\ADSISearch\Source" which is not included in the above compile command.  Other changes to the project settings don't seem to be reflected in the compile command either (such as output directory).

Anyone have any idea what I could try to fix this?

I should mention that I went back and compiled the same little test app on my old PC and I get the following compile command:

Other than the extra paths, you will notice the extra parameters for output directories and compiler flags are included.

I discovered a page which detailed what the issue is and how to fix it here:
https://forums.embarcadero.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1069&tstart=0

Apparently HP sets the "PLATFORM" environment variable (my new PC is an HP, my old was a generic clone) for its setup utility.  This environment variable messes with the Delphi build functions.  Deleting it fixed the problem.
