Compilation of the PortableApps.com Platform

I downloaded the sources of PartableApps.com Platform and I know how to compile them.
When I compile the platform I have : "[Fatal Error] dialog.pas (7): File not found: 'pngimage.dcu' "

you spelled developer wrong in your username

and the only program you can use to compile PAM is Delphi 2010 (which is not free). All free compilers will fail. Sorry Sad

Ok thank you

I tried with Delphi 7 but I'll buy XE Delphi (Delphi 2010 is no longer available)

It would be nice if

It would be nice if the source were ported to a different language compiler, preferably an open source one, instead of being tied to the commercial compiler Delphi.

While I don't have experience with this, I would think that there should be a compatible compiler that JTH could use. I've seen references to Lazarus as a comparable IDE, that uses many of the same type of components as Delphi.

Isn't Peazip created with Lazarus?

Just my 2c

I made this half-pony, half-monkey monster to please you.

The problem is the libraries

The platform uses some libraries that ship with the paid-for compiler which do not currently have any equivalent free versions.

Unless it was significantly refactored to approach things in a different way, just changing compiler wouldn't help matters.

What I meant

Of course, you can't just change compilers. That's why JTH would need to approach this, to modify the code to work in a different compiler.
I only suggested Lazarus because it is similarly based on Pascal, so maybe the amount of refactoring could be minimalized.
