RB 21.04 unable to find daDBBDE

I had a hard drive failure and had to start again. reinstall everything.

Windows 10
Delphi 10.2.3
BDE Installed
Reportbuilder 21.04

I have a project that built previously but now it stops with unable to find daDBBDE

There is no .dcu for that file in RBuilder\lib\Win32

The project was building prior to the reinstall, but I may have had Reportbuilder 20.04 Previously.


  • Hi Steve,

    RB installs only source units related to BDE

    Add RBuilder\Source to the library path or copy the unit from RBuilder\Source to RBuilder\Lib\Win32

    Best regards,

  • I guess this is a rights issue?

    [dcc32 Fatal Error] daDBBDE.pas(1653): F2039 Could not create output file 'c:\program files (x86)\embarcadero\studio\19.0\RBuilder\Lib\Win32\daDBBDE.dcu'
  • Thanks. All fixed now, granted rights to folder.
