the directory is correct and I see it in the string, but it still isn't written to the directory.

Look, you are /still/ not asking in the right place and I'm not happy being involved since I've not used Windows for years.

Stop the IDE. Start it again and tell us STEP BY STEP EXACTLY what you are doing. Make no assumptions and miss nothing out.

Thanks for your help. My only problem is that i can't save the .exe or .tpu. everything works without an error message. Saving .pas also works.

We know what your problems are better than you do and if you don't answer the questions then you don't get any help.

I checked yesterday evening and the fp IDE /does/ save executables. But I'm not taking the time to do a full-blown tech-writing explanation of how to do it: say what you're doing and (subject to OS differences) I and no doubt others will try to duplicate it and find what's happening.

Excuse me.
I have the PC WIN7 prof. 64bit. freepascal IDE has been reloaded. there are no error messages. unfortunately the compiled file DIA_TPU.TPU cannot be found. that's the only mistake. probably a switch is not set correctly.

Did you put Writeln(paramstr(0)); in your program?
What did it say after you ran it?

You can set the output directory of the executable in the options so there is no telling for us to where it is.
Only you can give that answer with the value of paramstr(0).

> DIA_TPU.TPU

Hardly surprising. What makes you think it's generating a file with that name?

it all worked fine in TurboPascal under WIN98, WINXP or old DOS. I only have to create a UNIT and cannot run the program like this.

You will get a .ppu somewhere. A .tpu is for Turbo Pascal. FPC generates .ppu files.

What do you want to do with such a .ppu file?
(It doesn't execute by itself)

Free Pascal does not generate TPUs. Instead the compiled variants of units consist each of a .ppu and a .o, so in your case look for a DIA_TPU.ppu and DIA_TPU.o (both are important if you want to store them somewhere).

[Chuckle] The problem is that we all interpreted what you were saying as that it didn't save a .exe anywhere... which is why I started off from the position of not even assuming that you were running FPC.
