Well, then why is the compiler building this just fine without even 
throwing an error?!?!?
As mentioned, I do not get the error at the .Create call, but at 
anything after that...
I do not have a working Delphi system at hand right now, but I am sure 
that this would have compiled and worked on anything up to Delphi 2006 
just fine.

I will change this and see if this makes a difference, thanks
