    [Linker Fatal Error] Fatal: Expected a file name

    I had created a path: "C:\c++\.." and had my source in there.
    BCB 6.0 came up with the above error.
    To fix it:
    1. Close BCB
    2. Clear the ENTIRE registry of all references to the path "C:\c++"
    3. Delete all the most recent config files in \bin, \lib, \projects in the bcb install folder.
    4. Open BCB and create a new project

    Couldn't find the solution anywhere, so when I solved it, thought I'd post it!!

    Ciao,
    Checco

    And in doing so, trashed your installation

    How about reinstalling it, and trying a "hello world" program?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
