you need zlib and freetype to install fpreports. It's in the manual
Lazarus 1.84 (32b) / FPC 3.0.4

If you see that screenshot you should know that when installing package!

Which wiki do you refer? Is that a frickin clear instruction? Holy moly.
You're trying on Windows, just give up already, that wiki never work.

He means a search for fpreport in the FPC/Lazarus Wiki and, for good measure, in Google (or whatever your favourite search engine is).

Please, do note that for most FPC/Lazarus users English is not their mother-tongue so instructions may not always be "fricking clear" :)
