Installation errors

Note that the new installers are more sensitive to handling errors during installation. Linker errors, SDK issues related to macOS, iOS, Android or platforms other than Windows will be detected. By default the installer will try to compile for each platform available in the IDE, whether or not it is properly configured. If you are not using the above platforms, you can safely ignore the error messages during installation. If you are unsure, please open the log file and check if there are messages related to:

macOS, iOS, Android

  • error MSB6004: The specified task executable location "C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\20.0\bin\dcciosarm.exe" is invalid
  • error MSB4018: The "CreateAndroidManifestFile" task failed unexpectedly
  • Fatal: E2202 Required package 'rtl' not found
  • ld: file not found: /usr/lib/libiconv.dylib
  • error F2588: Linker error code: 1 ($00000001)
  • error E2597: Linker error related to incomplete or incorrect SDK. Please make sure to import the macOS / iOS SDK and restart the installation.

The log file should provide with sufficient information indicating the issue. Typically, the issues are related to a misconfiguration of the IDE, the SDK for the target platform. The steps to take, if you want to use FNC for the above platforms is to make sure the application/package can be compiled in the targeted environment. If you are not using the targeted platforms, please ignore the error messages and proceed with the installation.


The installer will compile and install for Windows 32 bit & 64 bit, errors in this area cannot be ignored as this will lead to compiler issues in your application, missing BPLs and errors during the RAD Studio startup. Please inspect the log file and see which errors there are. Errors can vary, below is a list of the most common ones.

  • Fatal: E2202 Required package 'rtl' not found
  • Various source file related compilation issues

In this case, this is a severe issue with the RAD Studio installation and the library path setup, please make sure to install in a clean environment, potentially reinstalling the IDE will help solve the problem.

Please check the following link for other / similar install related issues.

Maybe have an option on the installer like "Ignore errors for missing platforms", along with a link to the above info?

Cheers, Bob

Good idea! Thanks for the input.
