    Hi Chris,
    looks like you have not (successfully) compiled the 'DCLUSR.LIB' project.
    The fact, that you have the project files but not the *.lib is a strong
    indicator. Try opening the .bdsproj (I can't tell you which IDE uses .bdsproj,
    but you probably know, since you have the files on your box ;-).
    Once you have successfully compiled the Lib, place it in your Lib-Path and
    your original project will hopefulle not produce the above error any longer.

    Cheers,

    Hi,

    I get a box come up when I try to compile it,

    "Personality CPlusPlusBuilder. Personality is required to load this project and is not loaded."

    What does this mean?

    I feel like bart simpson when he sold his soul to milhouse.

    I found a .bpk file in another directory and that successfully built from a cpp file.

    I have now gone from having one compile error to 124.

    Don't be alarmed by the 124 count. You simply miss a one or more header files/ .lib files that are needed in the project.

    In general, always fix the first error that the compiler finds (and then re-compile if the next error is not clearly unrelated). In .net, leaving off a terminal } for a function can create so many errors the compiler stops with a "too many errors found" error... fixing the top error will often fix the next several, or in extreme cases, the next several hundred.
