  1. Just wondering what solutions, if any, people use to monitor a program then restart if it locks up or gets an exception ?

    Monitor Windows application and restart if needed

    Ah right I see what you were meaning now

    Monitor Windows application and restart if needed

    Yes for one of applications we do a similar thing with TEvent function to watchdog driver threads which works well for created threads. However the issue becomes when there is a main thread lock up which additionally needs to be monitored and then restart the whole application if it goes into that locked state. As you suggest, this is to maintain the program running while any such issues are resolved. It can take time to narrow down whats going wrong and where, hence the need for this type of watchdog on the main thread.
  4. Yeah the release in my case was a small app and it wasn't in v12 it was v11. Only just trying v12 today which has been a whole day of finding constant issues. I stopped when v12 decided to quit all on its own while trying to run CodeInsight. In most cases with static libs I've always had to re-compile them all, in the end I changed those libraries to just add the code directly so gets compiled with the main project
  5. Lol.....yeah I was going to suggest that but realized it was not running as well while typing. Yeah I do think its worth it. Its just frustrating these things aren't consistent, maybe reporting it would help next time it happens. I think I had the exact style you mentioned but no time to think about copying things across as had urgent release so just changed the styles at the time.
  6. RzCommon.hpp has the code :- //-- var, const, procedure --------------------------------------------------- #define RaizeComponents_Version L"7.0.0" static _DELPHI_CONST System::Word cm_GetBlinking = System::Word(0x8fb); This produced the bcc32c Error :- [bcc32c Error] RzCommon.hpp(647): unknown type name '_DELPHI_CONST' [bcc32c Error] RzCommon.hpp(647): cannot define or redeclare 'Word' here because namespace 'Rzcommon' does not enclose namespace 'System' [bcc32c Error] RzCommon.hpp(647): expected ';' after top level declarator So I just dropped a RzPanel on a blank form and get the above error. Looking back at older compiles that line is compiled without the _DELPHI_CONST in the past....any ideas why RAD12 is producing that in the header files ? This is with Patch 1 installed.

    Raize RzCommon.hpp unknow _DELPHI_CONST in v12

    well a work workaround is to add : #define _DELPHI_CONST const I mean why is even the basics not tested
  8. Yes, that is what I have had to do in the past as well.....no idea why prior styles disappear

    How do I upgrade from (c++ Builder) 11.3 to 12 ?

    yep it seems endless the frustration to be honest

    Monitor Windows application and restart if needed

    Thanks for the ideas and suggestions, I'll look into the coding.

    C++Builder 12 - Windows only?

    The future is bright as its never been so poor i.e. you can only go so low, well in this cycle. You can target Windows both 32 bit and 64 bit in C++ but based on the speed of light performance for integrating tomo ide features and updating tool chains we are MANY light years away from improvements.
  12. Can you replicate in a simple test application ? Sometimes this helps to figure out if its also related to your specific code or EMB. Always a pain to figure out but EMB will do nothing unless there is a specific QC case. We've not quite managed to start using 12 yet so can't comment on the debugging side but from past experience I'm not surprised if there is an issue.
  13. Still slow for RAD Studio 12 for me, IDE says not responding and looks locked up if you press on the Extend the Ide or GetIT buttons on startup. It does eventually come back but I don't understand why the code they are using would lock the IDE up like that. It seems to come right eventually but surely a simple check could be done before locking up the IDE.

    @Fraser yep mine has that as well and is where all the loading of packages is seen for me. I'm fairly sure its always been like that. For me 10.1.2 loads fine and can compile.

    @Cherubino have you managed to lodge or find any QC reports about this issue ? I just found this one since I managed to login finally https://quality.embarcadero.com/browse/RSP-43235 In the full release of C++ Builder 12.0, the Structure view and the "Search for a method" box at the top of the editor are no longer populated with anything. This was working fine in the last Beta. The new Visual Assist stuff works great. What happened to the rest?
  16. I've installed v12 but just tried to look at the quality portal and its says I have no access. This is with an id I have used for 15+ years, anyone else had there access blocked ? I've submitted a request but EMB just continue to frustrate me no end.
  17. bdw_nz20

    Quality portal access gone for me ?

    Thanks for the info Dave, really appreciate it. It really should be EMB that maintains a service status page and keeps THERE CLIENTS up to date on service issues. In my opinion it presents an incredibly poor view to there customers, they can't even maintain a forum, now the same with quality portal.

    Thanks, yep disabling that stupid IDE toolbar item stops the script errors!!!!!!
  19. bdw_nz20

    How can I disable IDE talking to external websites?

    Fantastic, yeah that works so far for me

    Quality portal access gone for me ?

    Anyone seen any blog or post to indicate the outage and timing of repair ? I mean this has been a known issue for days, so @Marco Cantu @Dave Millington (personal) Any posts guys about this ? Even my 10.1 patch 2 IDE is crapping out now with script errors on start up ?
  21. bdw_nz20

    Quality portal access gone for me ?

    I just get an Error occurred still. At least its not saying your user or password is wrong anymore giving the impression you got something wrong

    After a couple million ESC keys pressed, 10.1 has crap at the top like you suggest "Have an amazing solution built in" oh heck, yeah its amazing EMB.

    So seems endless script errors from the Welcome page it seems......EMB what the heck are you doing. Why do I get this from YOUR crappy setup, man. Talk about pushing people to stop using a product. Every single release seems to be a battle royal to test and see what is broken this time. Is this what you call QUALITY, we can't even lodge issues, oh the irony or is that shutdown to hold off all the complaints, one has to wonder?

    Changes in the C++ Builder 12.0 editor

    @Fraser, yeah I have 10,1 patch 2 installed still as we STILL haven't been able to progress on update some projects to later versions (yeah thats a dig at you EMB). I just started it as not needed to run for a week or so. I've not had any issues with scripts prior to just testing now and got this one on opening a project. COME ON EMB !

    So looks like Quality portal is having an outage. Looks like we must hope for the best and expect the worst....
