Can you save the project before you compile/run it?

Yes, but the message on the compilation is Error: Can't open resource file.

In what directory did you save the project?

Depending on your localization and windows version,  that path may contain spaces. What is the full path? Can you save the project in a path without spaces?

unitprincipal.pas(362,1) Error: Can't create resource file: C:\lazfilesplitter\lazfilesplitter\source\source\WINRES.RES

Without spaces. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

I don't have any suggestions, except to disable manifest and version info.

Solved. The exe name had spaces.

Typo, can you create a bug report for the problem with the exe name with spaces? That way it won't be forgetten and it will be fixed in the future.

Sorry or the hijack but this is the only thread I can find that is even close to my problem. I'm very very new to Lazarus - still looking at examples to figure out what's going on. I can't get a sample project, containing a res file to compile at all. I do have quite a bit of Delphi experience.

I'm using the latest release [0.9.26.2 beta] and trying to compile the example:
E:\Lazarus\examples\trayicon
I keep getting:
wndtray.dpr(42,1) Error: Can't create resource file: E:\Lazarus\examples\trayicon\magnifier.res

The reason I'm posting here is that it looks like it is possible but I just can't figure it out and expect it is some setting I have yet to find.

I've been searching the internet all morning for a solution and decided to try here. Nothing else has worked. I'm a bit frustrated that examples that don't compile are shipped - but then, as I've indicated, it's probably some setting I have yet to find.

Thanks,
Dave

I had the same issue a while ago, but unfortunately I cannot remember how it was solved.
What OS are you using? 32 or 64 bit ?
