    I don't know if this info could help someone to reach/guess why this error happen.

    It happens that sometimes when you uninstall an old version of Rad Studio IDE, invalid entries are left in the environment variables. There is a small hope that the problem will go away if you delete invalid entries and restart your computer.
    Finding and removing them is quite easy with the free Rapid Environment Editor. Invalid entries will be displayed in red. To make changes to environment variables, the program must be run as administrator (no elevated privileges are required to view).


    If that doesn't work, try doing a full reset of the IDE first instead of a full reinstall. This can be done with the cleanregistryide startup key.

    Caution: You will lose all your projects from the BDS directory, so back them up before starting BDS with this option. This is a last resort, not the first thing you should try when troubleshooting the IDE.

    The instructions can also be found on the page: Using the -r command line switch to fix start up errors in the IDE

    After a hard reset with the -cleanregistryide key, do not install any plugins, experts, etc. Only the minimum set of components required to compile a group of projects.
    Then temporarily disable your antivirus, firewall, brandmauer and try the steps to reproduce the error again.


    If the steps I described above do not help, then I don’t know how to help anymore.

    Same projects always compile fine on 10.4.1

    How did you install Delphi 10.4.1? With a preliminary uninstallation of the previous installed version, or similar to 10.4.2 (automatic uninstallation launched during the installation of the new version)?
    How were 10.4.1 and 10.4.2 installed (via ISO image or using the web installer)?


    Try to activate the "Enable unit directory cache" option. Maybe this will help you.

    If that doesn't work, try the advice from the documentation, located just above the "See also" section.

    Attention: RAD Studio checks the amount of memory the IDE compiler uses, and when it exceeds 60% of the total available memory, the compiler flushes the unit cache...

    In 10.4.1 I had Several IDE 'enhancements' loaded and multiple 3rd party libraries, including DDevExtensions

    DDevExtensions for 10.4.1 can indeed be obtained by pre-compiling the source files from the GitHub repository. With that, everything is clear...

    But where did you get the IDE Fix Pack for Delphi 10.4.1 when the latest version only supports Delphi 10.3.3?

    Do these improvements apply to Rad Studio 10.4.2? If so, can you share them with us?

    Rad Studio 10.4, installed version of GExperts, based on revision 3167. There is a similar problem, the window size can be stretched horizontally and vertically.

    But after closing the 'Message Dialog' form, the set sizes are not remembered and when you re-open the window is small

    The error no longer appears in my revision 3325.
    The enlarged window size is not remembered when you open it again, but the window now fully accommodates all components
    I work on two monitors with a resolution of 1920x1080. In the time interval between the appearance of this problem and its disappearance, the monitors did not change.
    When installing Delphi 10.4.1, the problem was also present initially, so it's probably not in Rad Studio.

    Useful, but not really helpful for this case.

    This allows you to view the list of open units and switch between them. What other benefits does the opened units line give you?

    The only thing that comes to my mind right now is to change the order of the units in this line 🤔

    Ctrl + Alt + F12 starts the Intel graphics settings for me :classic_biggrin:
    But in the far right row, there is a down arrow to display the entire list.

    I think you can remove this keyboard shortcut or reassign to something else in the Intel Graphics settings (unless, of course, you do not use it that often) 🙂

    Anyhow, I like how Visual Studio Code displays the open files. It displays the FilePath to the right of the FileName using a different color.
    It would indeed be nice to be able to have an option to use such a layout.

    It would be nice to have that opportunity too. Thank you very much for the work done!
