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. 11). It is available in two versions, the free and commercial 5.5 versions of Borland C++ Builder. The free version is available on https://www.embarcadero.com/free-tools/ccompiler, 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.

* The 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).
