This error occurs whenever the varargs directive is used with non-cdecl functions.

function test(): Integer; varargs;


To fix this error, you need to declare your function with the external and cdecl directives:

function test(): Integer; varargs; cdecl; external 'externalLibrary.dll'; //This imports functions from a dynamically loadable library.


Note: This only occurs by compiling with the Object Pascal Mobile Compilers (dccios32 or dcciosarm). Otherwise, the code produces E2277 Only external cdecl functions may use varargs (Object Pascal).
