When compiling a project in PG5 1.4.300 the error 41: Multi defined symbol appears.

FAQ #100999

The project could be compiled in PG5 1.4.200 without any error. In PG5 1.4.300 an error appears and it is not possible to compile it anymore.


After a update from PG5 1.4.200 to 1.4.300 the program cannot be compiled anymore. The error 41: Multi defined symbol appears.

This can happen because PG5 1.4.300 is a bit more restrictive than PG5 1.4.200. If the addressing of symbols has been realised as explained below this error will appear on build:

Symbol       Address
Register1    Register2
Register2    Reg3+3

It will work again if the definition of Register2 is moved up.

Symbol       Address
Register2    Reg3+3
Register1    Register2

If you need an urgent fix ask the support team for a bugfix. The next patch or the next version of PG5 will contain this correction.
