Built-in Delphi XE6, XE7 and XE8 Fast Reports have issue “F2051 Unit fs_iinterpreter was compiled with a different version of fs_isysrtti.TfsSysFunctions”

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/30

I’ve seen this compiler error in Delphi XE8 and others in Delphi XE6 and XE7 using a project depending on the built-in FastReports:

F2051 Unit fs_iinterpreter was compiled with a different version of fs_isysrtti.TfsSysFunctions

This will probably fail in more recent versions as well.

The easiest workaround is this:

  • Fast Report XE6 (4.15.10)
  • Fast Report XE7 (Version 5.1.5)
  • Fast Report XE8 (Version 5.2)

The problem could be solved with help of technical support (Paul Gursky).

The solution is to remove all pas files from:

  • LibD20 (XE6)
  • LibD21 (XE7)
  • LibD22 (XE8)
  • LibD22x64 (XE8)

The above is paraphrased from Fast Reports forum > Fatal Error F2051 when compiling under Delphi XE6 and XE7

The core of the problem is that Fast Reports stores .dcu/.hpp/.pas files in the same directory whereas Delphi itself stores the .dcu/.hpp/.o files in one directory (actually usually in debug and release directories for each supported platform like win32, win64, etc).

Note: the built-in Fast Reports limits a few features, for instance export to Excel is not supported.

An interesting power/tech thing about solar power and batteries

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/29

This is a small discussion of about 1 year old on G+ An interesting power/tech thing….

It serves as a reminder to myself: how far is the gigafactory and when will battery prices really drop.

csc.exe: prevent “does not contain a static ‘Main’ method suitable for an entry point”, use /target:library

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/29

Every once in a while I do Command-line Building With csc.exe.

When building libraries, it throws this error:

The reason is that by default it wants to build a program.

Change this default by adding the /target:library parameter.


via: c# – Program does not contain a static ‘Main’ method suitable for an entry point – Stack Overflow.

Storing binaries in your gists

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/28

At first you’d think that gists can only hold text files. That’s not true, and I hinted to this last week in Hosting an HTML gist containing JavaScript.

As gists are git repositories, you can put any file in it through git, even binary files, though the gist UI nor a lot of the tools – including gist(1) – support uploading binary files in a gist.

This post – though old, so the screenshots are not current any more, but the commands still are current – explains how to clone the gist and add binaries (in this case images): How To Upload Image / Binary File to Gist | Hanxue and IT

This is for instance how I created a gist containing openssl Darwin binaries to help solve
