DCPIL Insanity

If you are using one of the CodeGear Delphis for .NET and are using an assembly made elsewhere, perhaps in C#, and something in that assembly has changed, say the visibility of a method, you may occasionally run into a case where no matter what you do, the Delphi compile does not seem to recognize the change at all.

It can drive you completely mental.

It turns out that there is a wrapper that you have to delete in these particular cases, and such wrappers have the extension .dcpil. They may be stored in a dcp directory, possibly under C:\Users\Public\Documents\RAD Studio\5.0\dcp if you have a Vista box.

Delete them, rebuild, and all will be well.
