Since FlagShip translates the Xbase code
to C code as an intermediate step and requires object compatible
libs during the linking stage, the used C compiler, utilities and
libraries must be chosen with great care, otherwise upredictable
errors may occur. See further details
here and the
difference between the C compilers here.
FlagShip8 with the Borland BCC32 (*) compiler creates native 32bit objects and exe files, executable on 32bit and 64bit MS-Windows (Wndows-XP, 7, 8, 10.

you only need to register
by yourself. If the link does
not work, click here. When already installed, check the version
by invoking "bcc32" at command
prompt, it should be 5.5.1 The alternative BCC32C compiler (aka BCC101 = Embarcadero C++ 7.20) is not compatible to BCC32 and is hence incompatible to FlagShip.
FlagShip8 with the Microsoft Visual Studio (*)
2022, 2019, 2017 or 2015 creates native 64bit (or 32bit) objects and exe files (Windows-10
or Windows-11). It is available as a free (Community) or commercial (Professional, Enterprise) license, please read the corresponding license terms.
C compiler and linker from BCC32 or from MS-Visual Studio is required in the developing phase to create the exe file, it is not required
for the user of your application, which only needs the by FlagShip
produced executable (i.e. your own .EXE file).
