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.
