Regarding RHIDE crashes: there's nothing we can do about that, we didn't 
create nor do we maintain it. It's a completely separate project done by 
other people. You should tell them about RIDE crashes.

You could try a 1.0.5 snapshot, though I've heard that the Win32 
snapshot of the IDE is currently broken.

You should set it to c:\pp\bin\win32 (replace "c:\pp" with the actual 
directory where you installed FPC), it is used to find the binutils I 
believe (which are put there by the installer).

Again, you'll have to ask the RHIDE maintainers about that.
