FAQ788C.txt   Invalid OMF record
Category   :Linker
Platform    :All
Product    :C++Builder  1.x

Question:

If I link to a .lib created with BC5 or BC5's implib, I get
an error message complaining about "Invalid OMF record."
What am I doing wrong?

Answer:

There is a difference in the object file format between
BC5 and C++Builder. This difference was deliberately
introduced to prevent problems when statically linking,
and was necessitated by changes in the exception handling
mechanism.

If you have a .DLL, you need to use C++Builder's implib
to create a new .lib, which you can link to. If you have
a static .LIB, you must recompile the source with C++Builder
or wrap the .LIB inside of a .DLL, and then run the new
implib on the .DLL.
