Question:
I am getting runtime error 255 when using BCB 3. 
What does it mean?   

Answer:
This error is reported if there is a hardware or other
 exception that isn't caught (and that is not one of the 
errors listed  below). As of this writing, Error 255 in 
Delphi 3 [BCB3] appears to  be caused by certain video drivers,
 and by workstations using  the AMD NexGen x586 CPU. 
Changing driver configuration, getting a newer video driver,
 or using the generic S3 drivers provided  by Microsoft or 
S3 Inc. usually solves the problem. In the case of the 
AMD NexGen x586, AMD no longer officially supports it, but 
there is a "tool" reported as fixing this error with 
Delphi 3 [BCB3] available from their web site at:
 "http://www.amd.com/products/cpg/nx586/support/toolbox.html" 
 called "winid20.exe", packaged in "updtpi31.exe".
