    BDE Support for Delphi 10.4.2

    Hi. Many thanks for that. Because Delphi 10.4.2 required a complete re-install, I had assumed that there would need to be a 10.4.2-specific BDE install, but apparently not, because the BDE installer you referenced works fine.

    BDE Support for Delphi 10.4.2

    Thanks but ... The only 10.4.2 product I see listed there is "RAD Studio Architect"; its components are listed as including "Delphi 10.4 Sydney Architect" but it says nothing about the BDE. When I installed it, I immediately installed 10.4.2 from GetIt over it, and that definitely didn't include the dclBDE270.Bpl which is the package which includes Ttable and TQuery. The mystery (tp me) is that when I originally installed 10.2.4 I must have found BDEInst.Exe somewhere, because that's what installs dclBDE270.Bpl, but I just can't find where I could have got it from. Which is what I'm asking ...

    BDE Support for Delphi 10.4.2

    Hello, I recently installed the BDE components for Delphi 10.4.2 to test an abswer I was writing on StackOverflow. Then, a couple of days ago, a failed Windows bios update meant that I had to re-install Windows (and Delphi) from scratch. I couldn't immediately find the BDEInst.Exe I'd used to install BDE support (TTable. TQuery, etc) and googling around only led me to a couple of links to installing BDE support from the XE7 era and there is no BDE Installer for 10.4.2 in the "My Registered Products" section of the Idera website. Fortunately, I found the BDEInst.Exe I needed in the Downloads section of my profile under C:\Windows.Old. But, and I realise this might seem a slightly strange question, could somebody "remind" me please where I might have downloaded it from? TIA, Martyn

    Registered products query

    Hello and apologies if I'm not posting this to the correct forum. Before edn.embarcadero.com was deprecated, there used to be a "My registered products" area where I could download, well, my registered products. Where is the equivalent area now and how do I gain access to it? TIA Martyn

    Delphi 10.4 intallation/activation

    Thanks, but how do I run the license manager if I can't complete the Delphi install (which I thought was what installs it).? All I have is the ESD .Exe file ...

    Delphi 10.4 intallation/activation

    Hello. I've just tried to install D10.4 on a new laptop and was delighted to be told I had exceeded the maximum number of installs permitted. I find this slightly difficult to believe as I've onlyy installed it once, on the laptop I'm replacing. Does anyone know if EMBA's servers actually operate at the weekend (it's Saturday @ 18:25 as I write). Not so long age they never seemed to work at the weekend so I gave up trying. Thanks, Martyn

    Problem downloading GExperts source

    Thomas, Many thanks for the reply, which worked perfectly. I haven't tried compiling the source yet, but I can see at a glance that it includes various sources which were missing from the zip file I mentioned (the SynEdit stuff, your own dzlib, etc., Just so you know, I was led to the url I was using https://sourceforge.net/p/gexperts/code/HEAD/tree/trunk/Source/ via a link from a post here, and the zip file was generated by clicking the Download Snapshot link on the RHS. Cheers, Martyn (aka MartynA on SO)

    Problem downloading GExperts source

    Hello. I'm trying to download the GExperts source, including externals, using File | Open From Version Control in Delphi Seattle. On the checkout page, I enter https://sourceforge.net/p/gexperts/code/HEAD/tree/trunk as the Url of Repository. A few moments after clicking OK I get the error message Unable to connect to a repository at URL 'https://sourceforge.net/p/gexperts/code/HEAD/tree/trunk' XML Parsing failed: Unexpected root element 'html' Am I doing something incorrectly or is there some other problem? FWIW, I am trying to download the source this way because the Zip file gexperts-code-r3140-trunk-Source.Zip I downloaded manually does not include a number of source files which are referenced by the GX_*.Pas files it contains. TIA
