I assume you are running this from some IDE ? The text mode IDE or the Lazarus IDE.
It would be instructive to try and compile from the command-line, this way
you'll get the complete error message.

In the case of Lazarus, start lazarus from within a console window. The
error messages of the compiler and linker will then also be displayed on
the console window.
