Don't know what I have done but the Delphi 2007 Report Builder 14.08 is giving me an error when compiling

It Adds raCodMod to the uses section attached it the screen shot

It was OK Last week but now it has this error
I have a large amount of reports that use Report Builder

Should this
C:\DELPHI7\CodeGear\RAD Studio\5.0\RBuilder\Source

not be
C:\DELPHI7\CodeGear\RAD Studio\5.0\RBuilder\Lib ?


The bottom line is that somewhere the compiler is picking up the older version of that dcu. As I said before it could be under your environment settings or it could also be under your project options. You need to figure out where it is.

Try a rebuild instead of compile.

Hi Pierre

unable to find a rebuild option

I was referring to build. I just meant you should try to build it again. Semantics.

Have you recently updated the component? I have had those errors before when updating a component. Try removing the component from delphi, and adding it again. Build the component again if you have the sources.

My understanding of the issue (I will try explain best I can) is that at some point a certain unit was compiled (and dcu created) and now another unit is relying on that unit but the source it links to is different to that used when the dcu was created. Most likely Delphi is finding an earlier compiled dcu from your search path i.e. in a different location to the one you intend to use (latest component version). You should also look at your library paths.

no comment intended I am not savvy with the Delphi structure

The component has not been updated in 12 months

Is there any other option than removing and reinstalling

I have the original component but do not know how to remove and reinstall

Please do a search for all raParser.dcu on your computer and post results here.

From that screenshot it is clear you have 2 different versions of the dcu. When using Delphi7 be sure that the path to your dephi5 is not included in the library path nor in the search path.

Pierre CorneliusCommented:
I don't have Delphi 2007. On my Delphi 2009 it is under Tools menu, Environment options, Delphi Options, Library - Win32

And then also under Projects menu, options, DElphi Compiler, Search Path.
