When you get “TfsScript.Execute” throwing a “Unregistered version of FastScript.” MessageBox

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/12/29

In recent Delphi version, FastReport version 5 ships. But for parts of FastReport, it’s a trial. This includes the FastScript part. The trial is very close to the real FastReport 5 thing. So real that when you compile you don’t see a difference, not even when trial and official things are mixed.

The only difference is that the trial will have a ShowMessage result like this:

ShowMessage('Unregistered version of FastScript');

ShowMessage(‘Unregistered version of FastScript’);

[Window Title]

Unregistered version of FastScript.


This occurred when I tried to move a the build process to a build server; a very tiny program will show this:

program FastScriptExecute;

{$R *.res}
  fs: TfsScript;
  fs := TfsScript.Create(nil);

The build server had Delphi installed but not FastReports 5. I put all the sources in version control and fiddled with the project search paths until it built on the server.


Since the trial is so close to the real version, it will compile even if you don’t include all directories. In fact some permutations of the FastReports source and Delphi XE8 FastReports trial DUCs build perfectly fine.

Remove from a Git repository without deleting it from the local filesystem – via: Stack Overflow

For a file:

git rm --cached mylogfile.log

For a directory:

git rm --cached -r mydirectory

Thanks bdonlan for answering that: Remove a file from a Git repository without deleting it from the local filesystem – Stack Overflow
