Problems with LazBuild and windres
« on: January 28, 2009, 09:52:16 am »
Hi,

I suddenly get a strange error when I try to build project within the lazarus ide and when I try to build it using lazbuild. At first I thought it is a problem with windres as the error message is (using the IDE):
Code: [Select]
windres: preprocessing failed.
bla.lpr(20,1) Error: Error while compiling resources
bla.lpr(20,1) Fatal: There were 1 errors compiling module, stopping

But compiling the RC-file with windres worked without any errors.

Using lazbuild I get the following output:
Code: [Select]
> \dev\Lazarus\lazbuild.exe bla.lpi
TCompiler.Compile WorkingDir="Z:\Dev\Projekte\bla\" CompilerFilename="Z:\Dev\fpc\2.3.1\bin\i386-win32\fpc.exe" CompilerParams=" -MObjFPC -Sc

Then I used the compiler commandline on I found in the lazbuild output and I got a surprise:

Suddenly it worked. But only when I do not use the IDE or lazbuild.

Can you try to compile the project with the -vd parameter, I think it will show how the compiler calls windres exactly.

I noticed this:
You start from here:
> \dev\Lazarus\
and it calls
Z:\Dev\MinGW\bin\windres.exe
and fails

You start from here:
Z:\Dev\fpc\2.3.1\bin\i386-win32\
and windres succeeds.

Is it possible that in the last case the actual windres.exe is in Z:\Dev\fpc\2.3.1\bin\i386-win32\ (the one that came with Lazarus or fpc) and the first one is a different one?

I only do have the windres installed in the Z:\Dev\MinGW\bin\windres.exe directory (which is in my $PATH). After I installed MinGW I moved all files that won't get built with the source code to the MinGW directory (and deleted those which already came with MinGW).

I did. But there's no difference in the command lines (I attached the output)

Do you have windres.h file in Z:\Dev\MinGW\bin\?
If yes, make sure it is the same as Z:\Dev\fpc\2.3.1\bin\i386-win32\windres.h

I do not have any windres.h on my hdd. And on another computer I do not have it either but there I can compile my projects with lazbuild without getting any error by windres.

One interesting thing is, when I call lazbuild using tcc.exe by JP Software instead of cmd.exe I do not get any error either. But that's not an option as I do have to run lazarus from tcc too (a double click on startlazarus.exe or lazarus.exe end with an error too) for not getting an error while compiling a project. I compared the environment of tcc.exe and cmd.exe and they are both the same.
