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.

Working around “[dcc32 Fatal Error] F2084 Internal Error: DBG3133” or “[dcc32 Fatal Error] F2084 Internal Error: MA1243

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/05/30

Since Google has a hard time searching G+: [WayBackAnyone ever encountered a “[dcc32 Fatal Error] F2084 Internal Error: DBG3133″… – G+ – Jeroen Wiert Pluimers:

Anyone ever encountered a [dcc32 Fatal Error] F2084 Internal Error: DBG3133 in XE8 or newer?

I get it in XE8 version 22.0.19908.869 intermittently on a huge* project when compiling or building.

If it occurs, I have to:

  1. restart the IDE
  2. delete all DCU files
  3. build

Without deleting the DCU files, even a build throws the error after restarting the IDE.

The project never throws an AV while compiling as described in [WayBackQC #127380: F2084 Internal error AV0B8A47D2-R3E1D3CF8-0 when compiling project unless the IDE runs out of memory (which I now resolved with DDevExtensions).

Every now and then on compile it also throws [dcc32 Fatal Error] F2084 Internal Error: MA1243.

For the other error, the same solution applies: if you don’t, then the next one is a [dcc32 Fatal Error] F2084 Internal Error: DBG3133.

Both errors occur during the Linking stage.


*huge as in that I needed DDevExtensions to work around [WayBack] Is there any tool that clears the Delphi memory overhead when a “build all” switches to the next project in a project group? XE8 constantly runs out of memory… – Jeroen Wiert Pluimers – Google+

Delphi XE8 [dcc32 Fatal Error] dcc32_F2084_C2359.dpr(30): F2084 Internal Error: C2359

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/10/05

Fails in Delphi XE8 with a nice [dcc32 Fatal Error] dcc32_F2084_C2359.dpr(27): F2084 Internal Error: C2359

It is fixed in Delphi 10.0 Berlin, but of course a C2359 search does not reveal that as Quality Portal is behind a wall. So for future reference the bug: [RSP-13471] Int64 for loops can generate Internal Compiler Error – Embarcadero Technologies. Thanks +Stefan Glienke for mentioning the issue.

program dcc32_F2084_C2359;

  TNumber = Int64; // UInt64; // fails too; other numeric types do not fail. Fails in a unit as well.
  TNumbers = TArray;
  TNumberRange = record
  strict private
    function GetLowerBound: TNumber;
    function Numbers: TNumbers;
    property LowerBound: TNumber read GetLowerBound;

{ TNumberRange }

function TNumberRange.GetLowerBound: TNumber;
  Result := Default(TNumber);

function TNumberRange.Numbers: TNumbers;
  lValue: TNumber;
  for lValue := LowerBound to LowerBound do

Workaround for Delphi 2010 error Fatal : F2084 Internal Error: AV00434055-RA37CCB72-0

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/09/24

Often in Delphi 2010, you can get an error like this:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\RAD Studio\7.0\Bin\CodeGear.Delphi.Targets(136,3): error : C:\Users\Developer\Versioned\Spring4D\Source\Base\Reflection\Spring.Reflection.pas(1647) Fatal
: F2084 Internal Error: AV00434055-RA37CCB72-0

There is a very simple workaround:

  1. If you are in the IDE: quit the IDE
  2. Delete all .dcu files the project generates
  3. If you were in the IDE: restart the IDE and reload the project
  4. Compile the project again


Sometimes it pays off back-porting to Delphi 2010: the generated executables are a lot smaller than more recent Delphi versions which can make a huge differenec when uploading many versions of bootstrap binaries to a version control system.

Delphi 2007: reproduction and workaround for “[DCC Error] ….pas(26): F2084 Internal Error: AV21BCE0AC-R00000000-0”

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/07/31

Just in case you come across this error ([WayBackQC 108189):

[DCC Error] CompilerAVUnit.pas(26): F2084 Internal Error: AV21BCE0AC-R00000000-0

I had this error in a really complicated unit that I tried to backport from Delphi XE2 to Delphi 2007 (as there was some non-unicode compliant app that needed this).

I could not find it searching for F2084 Internal Error, so I sat down and trimmed it down to the CompilerAVUnit below.

The workaround is simple: remove the static; from method Outer and it compiles fine.

I will post more details on the static keyword in Delphi in a future blog post. For now I’ll keep it at this: Read the rest of this entry »
