I use the function SetLength at several places in one Delphi application, without any compilation errors
Now I add something like this :

procedure MyProc(var M:array of string);
begin
.../...
SetLength(M,0);
.../...
end;

and get E2158 System unit out of date or corrupted : missing @Clr !!!

var M:array of string
don't know much about pascal but would guess that the array passed was by reference. if so, it can't be shrinked (to 0 or at all) in case it is allocated on the stack. you may try to pass a dynamic array instead.

Indeed, looks to be that
I used a workaround that ... works !
I defined

TRecArray = record
  Elements:array of string;

procedure MyProc (var M:TRecArray);
begin
.../...
  SetLength(M.Elements,0);
.../...
end;

Works !
