I am having this problem too. I followed your advise (svn export) and 
the compilation went without problems. I am using the newest Fpc and 
Lazarus versions from SVN.
But now, Lazarus wont start. When I start Lazarus with "Lazarus.exe" 
(what is "startlazarus.exe" for? does it only show the splash screen?) 
it terminates immediately (I checked it with my process explorer, it 
does launch) No error messages :/.

OS: WindowsXP
Fpc and Lazarus: newest from svn

Thanks in advance.
