    What about VCL form designer? There are not things too small?

    How to deploy a simple Win 32 app with SQLite file

    Then you need to statically link SQLite code in your executable. UniDAC can do this if you set Direct=True. @SwiftExpat does FireDAC is doing the same?

    Developing under Windows 11 in a VM not feasible ?

    Just tried in latest VMware 16 Workstation and my Win 11 VM with Delphi works on other machine. No workarounds. TPM installed and VM password encrypted.

    Windows Software Development Kit - why?

    That means that without Windows SDK, Delphi is working but you can't build MSIX packages. Or there are also other downsides?

    IDE being destroyed by new versions

    This doesn't affect my workflow so I will not report this issue in quality portal. You can either report it or you will have to live with it.

    Migrating away from Indy for file downloads

    TNetHttpClient is a component that uses THttpClient internally. If you don't need what TNetHttpClient offers then use directly THttpClient. TNetHTTPClient = class(TComponent) private FHttpClient: THTTPClient;

    Olaf Monien's Multithread demo on DelphiCon was nice!

    Is the source somewhere to download?
  8. "On 64-bit versions of Windows, you have two separate Program Files folders. But it doesn’t end there. You also have two separate system directories where DLL libraries and executables are stored: System32 and SysWOW64. Despite the names, System32 is full of 64-bit files and SysWOW64 is full of 32-bit files. " https://www.howtogeek.com/326509/whats-the-difference-between-the-system32-and-syswow64-folders-in-windows/
  9. If your OS is 64 bit and you have a 32-bit service then search an other place like SysWOW64.
  10. Delphi 10.4.2 I try to understand this exception. I occurs at the app start and this is the only message, then the app closes. It happens only on one machine and the same code but truncated by some IFDEFs (a reduced version of the main app) is working. I suppose that class destructor TDBNavigator.Destroy is called when class constructor TDBNavigator.Create is still looping with FButtonsImageCollection.Add() But what means this address 400000? exception class : EAccessViolation exception message : Access violation at address 76B6C9ED in module 'combase.dll'.

    Strange exception with "Write of address 00400000"

    Yes, there was some trouble over the 20 years of using it.

    Strange exception with "Write of address 00400000"

    Solved. The issue was caused by Sentinel envelope that is applied to the executable. The envelope decrypts and decompress the EXE in memory and is doing a lot of other stuff. The envelope permitted to start the executable but because some incomplete installed drivers I suppose it does not do all the job to restore all what is needed to run properly.

    Maximum static memory

    If the speed is the problem then I think better to use a profiler and save your time guessing. Using SetLength frequently on a large array is clearly a big one. VTune is nice using https://bitbucket.org/anders_melander/map2pdb/src/master/
  14. I prefer that changing the SQL to simply close the dataset. Then possibly I want to set some parameters. I will open it again when all is ready. But sincerely I always call Close before changing SQL. If this is a documented behavior then it's OK but otherwise this can change anytime. I voted for the last. It's closer to what I prefer.

    Physically reduce jpeg image size??

    If you don't want to compromise quality there is https://www.jpegmini.com/ There are some ways for developers to automate this but you can also buy a standalone app for 59$ and do it manually (first extract images to a folder then back to database). I think that with a free trial you can see how much it helps in your case.

    need code to receive low memory warning

    Set an event handler: if TPlatformServices.Current.SupportsPlatformService(IFMXApplicationEventService, IInterface(AppEventService)) then AppeventService.SetApplicationEventHandler(My_ApplicationEventHandler); And in that event you will receive the warning: function TFormMain.My_ApplicationEventHandler(AAppEvent: TApplicationEvent; AContext: TObject): Boolean; begin case AAppEvent of TApplicationEvent.LowMemory: ; end; end;

    take a look to this REST API Server

    I don't see the point. Delphi app is used only to serve Angular pages? What are the advantages over Angular own embedded HTTP server?

    Range check error.

    If Count is 0 then Str[1] will trow a range check.

    Using VMWare: what files remain on host?

    I start a new VM for every major app version and I want old versions to be stable. In this case I prefer to keep the sources in VMs. I don't write 3rd party components and I need only one Delphi version per my app version. It is easier so. When I start a new version I do a copy of the VM and all is there.

    Has anyone tried running Delphi on Windows ARM?

    From what I understand from the article it's "the Arm version of Windows". No emulator. But this Windows can run x86 code, like Delphi IDE, most probably using an emulator.

    How to kick TDataset to filter record(s)

    Yes, whole dataset, but how match it takes? What do you want to optimize? Do you keep in memory more than some thousands records?

    How to kick TDataset to filter record(s)

    DataSet.Filtered := False; DataSet.Filtered := True; Is working for me when using OnFilterRecord event.
  23. Customers asked me a long time ago for a feature to be able to introduce the length in inch in "12 3/16" format in a TEdit like control. I've made a component for this but with the new TNumberBox in Delphi 10.4.2 I wonder if this is usual and if there are some components for this in Delphi world?

    Intraweb/MS SQL/FireDAC app Azure deployment problem...

    I use UniDAC and in such a case I would use DBMonitor to see what queries are send to the server. I don't know if FireDAC has something like this but from what I know, if I'm not mistaken, you can see failed queries also in Azure.
