#6 Unable to build .rc file from project

I am just trying to figure this product out & am happy
with its potential, but I am unable to build a .rc
file which primarily consists of dialog resources that
we are stuck editing in Borland C++5.02 and I believe
are built with the help of Delphi normally. I was able
to make separate projects out of a string-only .rc
file and another small .rc file which has one dialog
in it, but this most-important file will not build.
The project gets created fine and you can edit things
fine, but when you go into the FDPA and try to build
it it says "Fatal Error: Error building project". The
documentation is no help--the file is not read-only
and no error.txt file is created. If I'm doing
something wrong I would love to find out what it is! I
think it would be great to be able to use this product!

    BTW this is 5.71 I'm using...and after I dismiss the fatal
    error warning, it tells me my project has been built (which
    it has not!)

    Have you tried to build the project direct from the
    Project->Build menu item; rather then using FDPA?

    Yes, it comes up with the same fatal error.

    Strange.

    I'd be happy to have someone debug this for you if you
    send me the project. I can be reached at
    jonathan_clark@users.sourceforge.net

    This problem is fixed using the 5.7.3 release of the
    ForeignDesk ITE.
