Delphi: [BRCC32 Error] ProjectName.vrc(63): file not found: C:\Users\Public\Documents\RAD Studio\10.0\Styles\SlateClassico.vsf

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/10/17

The Delphi styling mechanism hard codes style paths for Delphi built-in styles.

During compilation, a .VRC file is generated for your project (in this example ProjectName.vrc which is a resource compiler script. This was introduced by Delphi 2007 (see: Pre-build trick does not work to circumvent [BRCC32 Error] xxx.vrc(1): error creating xxx.res (via: Embarcadero Discussion Forums & StackOverflow)), got extended over time and by now this script can includes at least:

  • version info
  • main icon
  • manifest reference
  • platform targets
  • supported styles

For the latter, you can get errors like this one:

[BRCC32 Error] ProjectName.vrc(63): file not found: C:\Users\Public\Documents\RAD Studio\10.0\Styles\SlateClassico.vsf

The solution to this error is simple:

  1. Go to your project options
  2. Switch to “All Targets”
  3. Go to node “Application”, then “Appearance”
  4. Look for the style named just in front of the .vsf extension (in this case StateClassico)
  5. Remove the checkmark.
  6. Press OK
  7. Rebuild

Using Windows API function MoveFile to check if a filename is valid…  – via Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/10/17

This has a really neat Windows API trick [WayBackdelphi – How can I sanitize a string for use as a filename? – Stack Overflow by [WayBack] Alex.

Via: [WayBack] Interesting use of MoveFile, with NIL as the first parameter. – Thomas Mueller (dummzeuch) – Google+

  function IsValidFilePath(const FileName: String): Boolean;
    S: String;
    I: Integer;
    Result := False;
    S := FileName;
      I := LastDelimiter('\/', S);
      MoveFile(nil, PChar(S));
      if (GetLastError = ERROR_ALREADY_EXISTS) or
           (GetFileAttributes(PChar(Copy(S, I + 1, MaxInt))) = INVALID_FILE_ATTRIBUTES)
         ) then
      if I>0 then
        S := Copy(S,1,I-1);
    until I = 0;
    Result := True;
