    Can't assign app icon

    Hi, I had icons assigned to one of my projects and now all of the sudden delphi doesn't use them. Instead, when the FMX app runs I see the generic icon from windows. When I go to App Options, my icons appear there. Then, I click on Default, the icons change in the Options dialog but again not used when I execute the app I get the generic icon again. I've checked the .dprog file and deleted the entries with icons and reassigned them in the IDE. Sadly I can't seem to be able to assign icons to the app.

    How to restore Windows Store

    @Kas Ob. Yeah...there must be something seriously wrong. I tried the app you sent but it says that win store repair is disabled because win store frequent changes I then downloaded an updated win store repair wizard I found online and it is asking me to login to my email account. But when I try to add an email account the popup window shuts down. So the whole installation is damaged. I will not avoid a clean install. The only thing I am bored of is the installation of all delphi packages Gkrrr....10.4 is far, right 🙂

    How to restore Windows Store

    Neither sfc nor dism fixed anything although they said they completed successfully. wsreset sadly fails. I've tried many times before. It says "You'll need a new app to open this ms-window-store link" That's why I believe I need a fresh installation

    How to restore Windows Store

    @Kas Ob. I think I tried DISM before but I get some errors saying that the manifest files are not correct. I will try sfc Thanks

    How to restore Windows Store

    Well, the experiment was 1 year ago and I recently concluded that this must be the reason windows eat CPU load.... Sadly, no backups are avail.

    How to restore Windows Store

    By any chance, does anyone know how to restore windows store? I had this idea to get rid of all the unnecessary apps that come with windows and I removed them and windows store from Win 10 via PowerShell. Now, Windows consumes 100% CPU and I can see that processes like wsappx and the like get stuck so I assume that totally removing windows store is not a good idea at all. I tried to reinstall it via PowerShell, Creator Disk to fix Windows Installation and other methods but no luck at all. Before I do a clean installation maybe someone has a tip on this? Thanks

    Apple Pay / Google Pay - get card token for PayLane

    I have the impression that you can get the tokens from paylane. Other APIs have an endpoint. Maybe you can ask them

    Apple Pay / Google Pay - get card token for PayLane

    @TomDevOps Have a look at the parts about tokens in this guide: https://epayments-api.developer-ingenico.com/c2sapi/v1/en_US/index.html?paymentPlatform=ALL Maybe it helps

    Finalization section not called unless main form shown

    Is this a VCL app or FMX? Where does the code appear? In the proj file? if so, it does not really remove the form from being auto created. You just don't use the feature in the IDE Try creating the form using the default way: frmMain:=TfrmMain.Create.... and then assign it to the Application as the MainForm

    Anyone successsful with 64bit Android Debugging?

    I always had problems debugging in Android. I only remember a handful of times it was successful. Try to make the device available via adb outside the IDE rather than relying on the IDE to connect. Maybe it will work

    Cross-platform solution to forcefully end a thread

    Professor Lee is an amazing academic simply because he proves the difference between academia and practice. We need both sides though. Out of curiosity, does the comment in SQLite site implies that they do not use threads internally in the database?

    Triggers from Bluetooth Beacons

    Yes, it looks like it resets the manager. But need to test with more beacons to see if it is a viable solution.
