    Delphi 10.3 Update 2 available

    You can remove the error message by disabling the problematic fix: Tools -> Options -> IDE -> Environment Variables In the "User System Overrides" add a new Variable "IDEFixPack.DisabledPatches" (without the quotes) For the value, enter "CodeGenMod.Win32.FastFuncProlog" (with the quotes) Save and restart the IDE Remember to remove this entry if a new IDEFixpack version is installed 🙂

    Saving a large project takes soooo Loooonnnnggg..

    Hello Ian, Just a shot in the dark: Disable "TrackingSystem250.bpl" from the "Known IDE Packages": Close the Delhi IDE, run Regedit.exe and navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Embarcadero\BDS\19.0\Known IDE Packages". Find the entry named "$(BDS)\Bin\TrackingSystem250.bpl", and change the value (not the name!) to start with an underscore _ char. Close Regedit and try again with your project. HTH Achim

    IDE Fixpack 6.4.2 hangs Delphi 10.3.1

    Delphi 10.3.1 Enterprise with IDE Fixpack 6.4.2, DDevExtensions 2.85, GExperts, Bookmarks 1.6, Navigator 1.6, JCL, JVCL, ... When shutting down the 2nd instance of bds.exe, there is an access violation: Project bds.exe raised exception class $C0000005 with message 'access violation at 0x50067e88: read of address 0x122e72dc'. But after that bds.exe exits normal.

    Code completion stopped working on my project

    Any IFDEFs in your code? I guess you already restarted the IDE...

    Using dxgettext on Windows 10

    Did you had success in contacting Lars Dybdal? I'm using gnugettext.pas and the dxGetText shell extensions a lot (Extract translation to template, Merge template). Depending on the some config options, several GetText-tools spawn other tools like ggMerge.exe calling msgremove.exe, but using "bash.exe" as environment, which requires cygwin.dll to run on windows. I guess when porting GetText to Windows, the need for bash.exe was ported, too. However, I don't see a reason why bash.exe needs to be called at all. Using cmd.exe (from comspec environment variable) or plain CreateProcess() can give the same results. A very useful option in xgettext.pas to *not* include lines numbers (very helpful when storing po/pot in version control) in the po-file is not available in the configuration dialog. And why does extracting translations from source create a .po file instead of a .pot file? In my local fork I've addressed some of this issues and more, i.e. ignore component captions if they are the same as the component name like Label1=Label1, Button5=Button5, Action1=Action1, respecting Windows fonts, removed XPMan.pas use Delphi's manifest, etc. Thomas, do you have write access to the dxGetText project on sourceforge? I would like to send you some patches then. Achim
