The s call in the message line was converted to a "pointer(s)". I found the
FPC_INITIALIZEUNITS at Main, in the ASM output and understand now that the
compiler handles this fully and that FPC_INITIALIZEUNITS could not be the
issue. Perhaps this thread will help others new to FPC to know this too on
the chance they may research it. Thank you. Present code is at bottom to
thin down the thread.
Tomas below, may be onto it, as a threading issue. Thanks still for your

1) Current function is below, due to pruning the thread.
1) Clearly I was off course on FPC_INITIALIZEUNITS
2) You're understanding is correct C++api > C+wrpr > Pascal as callback
The wrapper is actually C code in a .cpp, for functionality
3) The API is multi-threaded, having dl'd a thread monitor, showing as many
as 5 threads spawened to the API and accompanied executable. As well, a
call back occurs by default from the API, at runtime, suggesting it fires
off a single dummy callback event.
4) Can you suggest an approach on the Pasacl Initialization to the thread
and/or some of the areas I should be looking up toward doing the work?
Google is my friend. ;-)
Thank you again. Mike
