Now I'm trying to build Lazarus again (I tried different switch options):

  1. d:\Archive\development\lazarus_trunk_x64>make clean all OPT="-glw2" OS_TARGET=win64 CPU_TARGET=x86_64 CPU_SOURCE=x86_64 OS_SOURCE=win64

Now *.gdb files are no longer there, but when I try to start startlazarus, I get the same error %)

Might be stupid but try this: copy lazarus.exe into lazarus in the same dir (remove the .exe extension) and try startlazarus again. If still fail please check if run lazarus.exe directly could open the ide.

This may seem strange, but renaming lazarus.exe to lazarus (without the extension) solved the problem. Why? I got the feeling that startlazarus is trying to run an executable lazarus without expansion.

please check if run lazarus.exe directly could open the ide.
The launch of Lazarus.exe is also successful. But after each rebuild, the IDE launches startlazarus.exe and the situation repeats itself again.

I think it's a mistake of startlazarus. On Linux, executable has no extension. It's expecting the same thing on Windows. Might you file a bug report?

Startlazarus (really the TLazarusManager object it uses) always uses GetExeExt to build the filename so it shouldn't be looking for a Unix filename in Windows. Something else must be wrong.

Maybe I should post this question on the Lazarus mailing list?

I can confirm this very interesting issue.
GetExeExt does not work when used as used by startlazarus and compile with FPC trunk.

Does not work:
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. DefaultExe:=DefaultDir+'lazarus'+GetExeExt;

Does work:
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. DefaultExe:=DefaultDir+'lazarus';
  2. DefaultExe:=DefaultExe+GetExeExt;

Compilation with FPC trunk.
All other FPC versions work well.

Can you provide a reproducible, small example and report a bug, please?

@PascalDragon

Could you please explain ?
The code-sample shows a very simple way of testing this.
This issue has now been reproduced by some people.
Just build FPC trunk and Lazarus trunk. And build+look at startlazarus.

Reason for asking.

I am using GetExeExt on many places in my own code without problem. As does Lazarus. So, this issue is unique in its occurrence at startlazarus. And will be very hard to reproduce. But in startlazarus, it is very visible.

Frankly, I don't see how it can be faiing; after all GetExeExt is just:

Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. function GetExeExt: string;
  2. 349     begin
  3. 350       {$IFDEF WINDOWS}
  4. 351       Result:='.exe';
  5. 352       {$ELSE}
  6. 353       Result:='';
  7. 354       {$ENDIF}
  8. 355     end;

Maybe someone can test adding this to lazarusmanager.pas:
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. const
  2.   GetExeExt =
  3.       {$IFDEF WINDOWS}'.exe';{$ELSE}'';{$ENDIF}

Only way any of these would fail would be if either:
  • somehow WINDOWS is becoming undefined; or
  • Windows now has case-sensitive filenames ;)

Perhaps it's the compiler's fault.

Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. DefaultExe:=DefaultDir+'lazarus'+GetExeExt;

The compiler interpreted it as:

Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. tmp:=DefaultDir+'lazarus';
  2. DefaultExe:=tmp;

And forgot +GetExeExt.

It's just my stupid guess. Anyway, put the assembly produced by fpc trunk here and professionals will jump in to invest it immediately  :P

You said it yourself: stupid :D

I'm joking: it's actually possible (and would be a very serious bug) but if that were the case it would be failing everywhere and breaking quite a lot of code (if not all) since that's a very common construct --
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. SomeString := AString + 'constant' + AStringFunction;

But what we are seeing here is that failing just in startlazarus and not in any other program. Which is kind of really strange.

Hi Sven.

I built lazarus trunk x64 using fpcupdeluxe v.1.6.8m and got a similar error and the same "solution"

Important update:
I had doubts and began to experiment. I found the following: such errors DO NOT occur if you build lazarus (any revision) BEFORE the 44724 compiler revision. The error is probably due to changes in the compiler source code in any revision after rev.44724. This is true for any build x32 and x64.

Please someone check my assumptions...
