Working around [Fatal error] F2084 Internal errors like AV101E53EB-R0000000C-0

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/03/17

A few notes from my response to [WayBack] [Fatal error] F2084 Internal error : AV101E53EB-R0000000C-0 I’m getting this when trying to do some code completion. Any idea ? – Stéphane Wierzbicki – Google+:

This compiler related error usually made it go away for me either when it occurs during project compilation or when using code completion: Close the IDE. Delete your DCU files. Then restart the IDE.

Starting fresh gives a high chance if fixing this unless it is indeed a compiler related error in which case it returns. For that you need to trim down your code to see under which circumstances.

Reasoning (please shoot at it when things are wrong/missing):

Both the IDE code completion and the project compilation use the compiler. The DCU cache is shared between these compiler instances. The DCU cache depends on internal memory structures. Various pointer related errors (both from the IDE, compiler and 3rd party extensions) can damage this cache.

Especially weak IDE uses of the compiler are the find symbol and rename symbol functionalities. I’ve stopped using those about a decade ago.

Sometimes the F2084 (which I often mistype as F2048) is indeed an error in the compiler. Over the years, some of them have been fixed too. See my earlier articles on F2084.
