    Delphi 12 Athens

  1. I alternate with a colleague of mine in development with Athens on the same PC. As soon as Athens 12.1 patch 1 came out, I installed it using the manual procedure. Yesterday my colleague continued working on the same PC, and not knowing that I had already installed the patch manually, he also applied it with Get It, as he saw it in the list of possible updates. Now I find myself with two ways of installing the same patch and I wonder if this may lead to problems in the proper functioning of the environment. I would like to avoid re-installing the whole package and the 20 or so third-party libraries we use from scratch. Any idea whether we have "broken" the toy ?

    What is the best AI at Delphi

    I usually ask my questions about the Delphi code to ChatGPT 4. It is very fast and enougth precise. You can use same chat session to teach it when is wrong and it learn for next responses. Recently I've played with local AI using "ollama" and "mixtral" model for programming. Example in pastebin : https://pastebin.com/wWaLsw1V Mixtral model requires a lot of memory, I've 48GB in my PC, but I don't have a compatible CUDA GPU so will take 4 minutes to get the pastebin result using only I7 CPU.

    Do you need an ARM64 compiler for Windows?

    We bought industrial Iot licence version for 45 to 89€ depending by number an type of cores. W10 1908 version. It works very fine. I in will prepare a video next week.

    I've already made 😉 RPI 4b running W10 which execute intel 64 bit native code. A very low cost operator interface for a CNC. Also Open GL works but remain the price of intel to arm just in time conversion. All for lees than 90€... All made with Delphi. An early video of first experiments but well working. https://youtu.be/3u0L4uaigV8?si=H5mApXT-ryQ3EbGc

    A Windows ARM compiler could be interesting because W10/W11 can run in low-cost devices as like as Raspberry overall for kiosk or embedded user panels projects.

    Delphi 12.1 is available

    In the past, I was in trouble with web installation so I always downloaded the full iso image.

    Delphi 12.1 is available

    Ok, I'm trying... Uninstall does not ask me anything but the new installation asks if to use an Already Existent License 😉 Before, however, I've clonezilled the C disk 🙂

    Delphi 12.1 is available

    So to get the new 12.1 I've to uninstall and reinstall all by zero? 1] I have got a lot of manually installed 3rd part libraries (13, ... uh...). 2] What happens with the Installation counter? Do they take into account that I've uninstalled it? 2nd question is important because I've two development PCs: 1] main office desktop PC to do work when I'm in the office. 2] A secondary portable notebook to do work when I'm at the customer's factory They are used mutually exclusive, or 1 or 2, but I've already used 2 installations shoots.

    Will be available as GetIt update ?

    In my case would be amazing to have a valid Delphi compiler for ARM64 Linux + FMX. A lot is moving in the embedded world based on ARM architectures + Linux and I've also tried FPC + Lazarus (a nightmare...). Dreams are dreams 🙂

    Missing VCRUNTIME140D.dll after Athens update

    A forum user suggested me to ask to "Programs and Features" to "Repair" the installed packages "Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2022 Redistributable (x64)" and "Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2022 Redistributable (x32)". This worked and solved the issue. I've reported that here to other users. Thanks.
  12. After Athens patch 1, using GetIt, the compiled programs, in IDE, do not run and notice missing of a DLL: Do you have any info about how to fix it? The message message does not say what to reinstall 🙂

    What new features would you like to see in Delphi 13?

    So, to use a 3rd part DLL made with C++, eg: MSVC or C++Builder itself, it is necessary to create a Proxy C DLL with C++ Builder. https://blogs.embarcadero.com/how-to-use-a-c-dll-in-any-delphi-program/
