Delphi “F2039 Could not create output file” on drc files

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/01/19

I had this error when building my Delphi app and needing detailed MAP files.

Somehow, then Delphi also tries to generate .drc files and fails.

Performing the “F2039 Could not create output file” drc – Google Search didn’t reveal much.

So I fired up Process Monitor and looked for file access patterns (see dump below), that all were OK.

Then I opened Windows Explorer and saw freshly generated .DRC files marked as some type of VLC Player file. I’ve had loads of trouble with VLC in the past, but I inherited this PC so I didn’t notice VLC Player was installed by the previous developer.

Lesson learned: when starting a gig, always request a fresh PC

So I uninstalled VLC Player and now everything works fine.

Oh btw: .DRC files are Delphi Resource String files.

An exponential back-off implementation I used somewhere; probably room for improvement, but it works good enough.

I will probably need this again somewhere in the future: An exponential back-off implementation I used somewhere; probably room for improvement, but it works good enough.

It’s Delphi, but I’ve not seen practical implementations in C# either.

Visual Studio: In TFS how can I correct the links to work items on an existing changeset – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/01/17

This is still one of my gripes from Visual Studio: when a changeset is linked to an incorrect work item, you still have to change this from the work item side:

You cannot change it from the changeset UI, but you can change it from most work item UI’s. You can just add a link to a the specific changeset and the changeset will show the link as well.

You have to be careful with the steps too:

  1. Link it from the correct work item as a changeset link
  2. Unlink it from the wrong work item

If you do it in reverse order, and get the changeset number wrong, you will have an orphan changeset.
