You did not say which version of Indy you are actually using.

The OnBeginWork event used Integer, not Int64, in Indy 9 and earlier, so I
assume that you are using Indy 10 instead.  However...

.... TIdComponent.BeginWork() in the snapshot version of Indy 10 also uses
Int64, not Integer, which suggests you are using an older release of Indy

You should should consider upgrading your version of Indy to something more

Then you are not compiling a clean copy of the latest version, as Indy 10
does not use those files anymore.  They do not not exist anymore, so you did
not update some of your files correctly, and are compiling older files
