it would seem that you are opening the .exe in Delphi.
Close it, and open the .DPR

If opening the DPR leads to this, I don't know what you have fucked up but probably you'll have to recreate the project and add the units.

It appears it was saved in Unicode.
Open forma.dpr with a text editor that support Save As Ansi. It should fix if that was the reason.

epasquier, it does not appear like the .exe file if we are seeing from the start of it. The EXE signature is not there. For me. forma.dpr was saved as Unicode.

hi epasquier, nice to see you.
hi Geert; I know your holding a beer.

Yes, it's not an .Exe format, its just an .exe file overwritted,  but not also saved as Unicode.
It's just an .exe file that was overwritten into a formed of hexa-code.

Cleanup your Delphi files; using this console commands; or make a batch file to automate the deletion;
del *.exe /s
del *.dcu /s
del *.res /s
del *.~* /s
del *.cfg /s
del *.bdsproj
del *.bdsproj.*

After that commands,  rebuild your project, make a new project, add all your necessary .pas files to the project.
