LAMW projects do not compile anymore
« on: May 06, 2021, 06:18:35 pm »

I have not compiled a LAMW project for a while. After pulling the latest LAMW + ugdating FPC&Lazarus (fixes branches) with the latest  FPCUpDeluxe now I am getting this error even for a freshly created LAMW GUI project:

Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. Compile Project, OS: android, CPU: arm, Target: C:\A\Test\AppLAMWProject2\libs\armeabi-v7a\ Exit code 1, Errors: 1
  2. Fatal: Cannot find system used by controls. Make sure all ppu files of a package are in its output directory. ppu in wrong directory=D:\fpcupdeluxe_fixes\fpc\units\arm-android\rtl\system.ppu..

What settings should I check?

PS: I have read about LAMW Manager, but I prefer&use Windows 7 which is not supported by that.

To answer my question:

FPCUpDeluxe earlier had  default options for android cross compilation which were suitable for LAMW.
It is not the case any more, but it's setup  includes a "Cross build override" edit box. So the solution generally is to add the necessary options needed for your LAMW project.

These worked for me:

"Select CPU" = arm
"Select OS" = android
"Cross build override"  = -CaEABI -Xd -CfVFPv3 -CpARMV7A -XParm-linux-androideabi-  (maybe not all of them is actually necessary)
"ARM target" = armhf

"Compiler options" --> "Custom options" =$(IDEBuildOptions) -CfVFPV3 -CpARMV7A

An alternative to Fpdeluxe:

  I use Lazarus 64 bit v 2.0.2 (Windows) and I have cross-compilers working that way:

1- Install fpc-3.2.2.win32.and.win64.exe
2 - Install .exe
3 - Download zip and extract only the fpcsrc folder to FPC folder
4- In Tools\Options change Compiler Executable and FPC Source Directory
5- LAMW Android Project Options\Build change to ARMV7a+VFPv3

It was the fastest way to compile Win32 Win64 Android ( with ANT or Gradle)

LAMW and FPC is a mystery to be solved.
I tried to play it on a friend's pc, exactly what I did and it works on my pc. Result: Fail.
  Now I'm investigating why this works for me. When I find out I'll do an update here.
