Simple Application, Error 216 on one WinCE Device
« on: July 15, 2014, 11:35:42 am »
Hello,

This simple program:
Code: [Select]
program _simple;

var
  tmpstr:string;
  tmppchar:PChar;
  buf: array[0..2] of Char;

begin

  buf[0]:='A'; buf[1]:='B'; buf[2]:=#0;
  tmppchar := @buf[0];
  tmpstr := tmppchar;

end. 

... works on most WinCE devices except one I have. Windows Embedded 6.0 core, ARM Mstar 2531.
I have got "Runtime Error 216". I have tried different options like optimalizations levels and different target processors without luck.

Any ideas?
Ubuntu 64bit

Which FPC version, and what processor was the RTL compiled for?

Tried FPC versions: 2.6.4 and 2.7.1, crosscompile: i386-win32 -> arm-wince.

Did you have some success with your Mstar 2531 device? I have troubles with a navigation system with the same processor.

A year later- I wonder if wince support is still developed? If so, maybe it is worth trying to build a simple app again and try if it will work on my device.

@CM630: from my experience applications developed for WinCE (LCL and non-LCL) platform works fine on current/3.0 FPC and Lazarus/trunk. That`s pretty cool if we consider when WinCE platform was active in mobile segment.

Exception is FPC/trunk after 32803 commit - apps refuses to run on ARM CPU (which WinCE devices usually uses). There is some hidden bug which prevents applications to start.
