Here is the error: ConfigFile is a variable, not a type. You cannot
create the variables themselves, only a type instance. You should either

  with TInifile.Create(ChangeFileExt(ParamStr(0),'.INI')) do

in which case, you do not need the ConfigFile variable. Or:

  ConfigFile := TIniFile.Create(ChangeFileExt(ParamStr(0),'.INI'))
  with ConfigFile do

These are the proper ways to use a TIniFile.
