  1. Thanks everyone; I'll give the RCDATA thing a try and see how well it works for me.
  2. I've been using: unsigned char data[]={ 255,216,255,225,7,132,69,120,105,102,0,0,77,77,0,42,0,0,0,8,0,12,1,0,0,3,0,0,0,1,1,144,0,0,1,1,0,3,0,0,0,1,1,11,0,0,1,2,0,3,0,0,0,3,0,0,0,158,1,6,0,3,0,0,0,1,0,2,0,0,1,18,0,3,0,0,0,1,0,1,0,0,1,21,0,3,0,0,0,1,0,3,0,0,1,26,0,5,0,0,0,1,0,0,0,164,1,27, 0,5,0,0,0,1,0,0,0,172,1,40,0,3,0,0,0,1,0,2,0,0,1,49,0,2,0,0,0,31,0,0,0,180,1,50,0,2,0,0,0,20,0,0,0,211,135,105,0,4,0,0,0,1,0,0,0,232,0,0,1,32,0,8,0,8,0,8,0,10,252,128,0,0,39,16,0,10,252,128,0,0,39,16,65,100,111,98,101,32,80,104,111,116,111,115,104, ... }; But it is a large amount of data and I wonder if there is a better way?

    SHGetSpecialFolderLocation in FireMonkey

    Thank you - I disabled the warnings and that did solve the problem: #pragma warn -8026 #pragma warn -8027 #include <shlobj_core.h> #pragma warn .8027 #pragma warn .8026 I like that better than my other approach.

    SHGetSpecialFolderLocation in FireMonkey

    I found this page: https://docwiki.embarcadero.com/RADStudio/Alexandria/en/Standard_RTL_Path_Functions_across_the_Supported_Target_Platforms And then found this: UnicodeString us; us=System::Ioutils::TPath::GetPublicPath();
  5. I am trying to get the programdata folder. I've been using: cppbuilder 10.3.3 LPITEMIDLIST pidl SHGetSpecialFolderLocation(NULL, CSIDL_COMMON_APPDATA, &pidl) SHGetPathFromIDListW(pidl, APath) This works fine in a VCL application, but a FireMonkey application, none of it is recognized. I tried to include <shlobj_core.h>, but this gives 1500+ warnings about the below and then fails. [bcc32 Warning] shobjidl_core.h(26477): W8026 Functions with exception specifications are not expanded inline Full parser context mycode.cpp(33): #include c:\program files (x86)\embarcadero\studio\20.0\include\windows\sdk\shlobj_core.h shlobj_core.h(86): #include c:\program files (x86)\embarcadero\studio\20.0\include\windows\sdk\shobjidl_core.h shobjidl_core.h(26477): decision to instantiate: ACTIVATEOPTIONS |(ACTIVATEOPTIONS,ACTIVATEOPTIONS) throw() --- Resetting parser context for instantiation... I was using this function because this code has to run on some older compilers, but if I can't get it to work I can use something else.
  6. Interesting - I was reading the differences page and this came up: Clang-enhanced C++ compilers do not allow the use of sizeof in a preprocessor directive, such as #if sizeof(ATypeName) > 20. How can one then test for sizes if this is not an option - is there a workaround/alternative method?
  7. Three? clang classic What else?
  8. Yes, that is exactly what I am trying to do. >Can you confirm that you are using the clang32 compiler for your 32bit code (if not then first thing to try is to use the clang32 compiler - maybe it's name mangling will be the same as the clang64 (I haven't checked this)). I am using the classic compiler, I just have more experience with it so I stick with it. I would think the clang compiler would still mangle/underscore the names for 32-bit code.

    old BCB6 question about wmain

    Thanks for checking! I found the option -WU mentioned in the help and it works at the command line, but putting it in CFLAG1 in the BPR file did not accomplish anything.
  10. Sorry Remy; I saw the "General Help", but didn't look at its parent folder. I appreciate the help.
  11. No, it comes up with an error: [ilink32 Warning] Warning: Attempt to export non-public symbol 'CCfgClassNew' The problem is that 32-bit mangles the name with an underscore and 64-bit does not, which is why I am using the DEF file to unmangle the 32-bit version of the DLL so it and the 64-bit version have consistent names. ALSO, one more odd thing. if the DEF file changes in any way, this error is produced when trying to build: [ilink32 Error] Invalid command line switch for "ilink32". Parameter "ItemSpec" cannot be null. The way to fix it is to remove the DEF file and add the DEF file back again, then it will build without the error.
  12. Everyone, maybe I should have specified C++Builder. The DEF files are for compiling two different versions, 32-bit and 64-bit DLL's. 32-bit version top two lines: EXPORTS CCfgClassNew=_CCfgClassNew 64-bit version top two lines: EXPORTS CCfgClassNew=CCfgClassNew The 64-bit lacks the underscore, my goal here being to produce a DLL that uses the same name for the function no matter whether it is 32-bit or 64-bit. I want to access it as CCfgClassNew either way. Maybe there is no way to do this in a DEF file and I have to do different projects.
  13. I am surprised at this. Clearly it can't assign a value before it evaluates a value. I can put the increment on the next line to appease it. Isn't there a definition or design about evaluation order?
  14. I still have some projects in the old bcb6 that I need to compile sometimes. One thing I noticed is that if I create a new win32 console mode application, it doesn't let me replace main; int main(int argc, char* argv[]) With wmain: int wmain(int argc, wchar_t* argv[]) In cppb10 there is an option _TCHAR maps to where you can select char or wchar_t and this seems to clue the linker in to look for main or wmain. Is there an equivalent option for bcb6? (for anyone who remembers this old compiler!) I tried looking in the compiler/linker settings, but I am missing it or it doesn't exist.
  15. The line of code is this: AData[ui3++]=(AData[ui3]<<4) | (tow_lower(AString[ui1])-'a'+10); I know I am incrementing ui3 in the destination AFTER it is being set. I am using ui3 in the expression, but it shouldn't be changed until the end. Why the warning?
