I was hoping this latest version would work but no dice. Does this utility still work for anyone for the latest version of MAME 0.237? I'm getting this error.

Thank you!
Glad to assist.   :cheers:

If anyone needs an older version, check for an Internet Wayback Machine backup between that version's release date and the next version's release date.

Latest backup of Headkaze's Mame Compiler 64 page to check release dates . . .
https://web.archive.org/web/20200812223145/http://www.headsoft.com.au/index.php?category=mame&page=mc64

. . . then go to https://web.archive.org/ and plug http://www.headsoft.com.au/index.php?category=mame&page=mc64 into the search field.
- There are over 100 backups between 13 Oct 2009 and 12 Aug 2020.   ;D
- The download link for that date's version is at the bottom of the MC64 page backup.
- Protip: "Blue dot" links are better than the "green dot" links.

MC64 and MAME release version numbers appear to have been synced since MC v2.0.161 and MAME 0.161.

MAME 0.197 was released on 25 Apr 2018 so MC64 v2.0.197 probably came out around 3.5 years ago.

To compile MAME, you need a C++17 compiler and runtime library. We support building with GCC version 7.2 or later and clang version 6 or later. MAME should run with GNU libstdc++ version 7.2 or later.

Starting with the December 2020 development cycle (after the anticipated release of MAME 0.227), we will switch to compiling MAME as C++17.

Bottom line:  MC64 v2.0.197 probably works with MAME 0.197 thru MAME 0.227, but anything newer is definitely out.

Bummer, thanks for clearing that up.
