That was the original problem, so I removed the versions from both 
locations. In the output you see that the new version is build as 

the '.\lib\x86_64-win64\x_service.res' is not build, hence my question, 
why is it tried to link that one ?

I do have a {$R *.res}, iirc this should link x.res (which you can see 
in the files passed)
