Resource Compile Error when using Alternate Delphi Compile Location

When using an alternate Delphi compile command, the resource changes cannot be compiled. I have both Delphi 5 and 6 installed and sometimes I need to use Delphi 5. If I set the Override location of the compiler to the Delphi 5 directory, the call to brcc32.exe (The resource compiler) fails. It looks like it is missing a quote mark. Here is the output from using the override compiler location, followed by the default compiler location. The first step exits with a message "Failed to create process: The system cannot find the file specified". What prints shows a missing quote after brcc32.exe.

Is there anything I can do to fix this?

Thanks

It appears that the 'Override default...' field (or macro referenced by it) on the Options tab of the Make Delphi action starts with a double quote. If you remove any double quotes from that field/value, it should work ok.

Thanks,

It was a macro that was quoted - A hold over from when the Delphi Compile command was not there and Delphi was invoked using the Run Program command.
