    Running the IDE in a VM on Mac Book Pro?

    Can the same VMWare images on an external SSD be used BOTH from VMWare Workstation on a Mac and from VMWare Workstation on a Windows PC (of course not simultaneously)? That possibility would be a huge advantage over using Parallels.

    Running the IDE in a VM on Mac Book Pro?

    I suppose external SSDs are attached via Thunderbolt cables on a Mac Book Pro? And isn't Parallels better integrated into Mac OS than VM Ware Workstation?

    Running the IDE in a VM on Mac Book Pro?

    Running VMs with Windows 10 from an external SSD over a USB cable? Are you sure this would work?

    Running the IDE in a VM on Mac Book Pro?

    Definitely (from the official Apple configurator website)

    Running the IDE in a VM on Mac Book Pro?

    Yes, but the PC workstation hardware can be easily upgraded while the Mac Book Pro cannot.

    Running the IDE in a VM on Mac Book Pro?

    A competent person from the PC workstation area told me: "If you buy a Mac Book Pro (15", 4 TB SSD, 4 GB graphics card, 32 GB RAM) today for 6,000 Euro you will have to replace it maximally in 3 years (and pay another 6,000 Euro) because the hardware will be out-of-date". Is that true?

    Running the IDE in a VM on Mac Book Pro?

    Sorry for this question, but I am really asking myself whether the Apple community is some sort of mental institution and whether Apple can be a reliable business and technology partner? That's because yesterday I went to the local Apple store to ask a few technical questions about the Apple device I am planning to buy. But the employees there were technically incompetent. They couldn't even tell me the name of the current Mac OS (Mojave!). Then I asked for the connectivity with Windows networks, with computer displays, etc., but they couldn't give me competent answers. One Apple store employee made a rather crazy impression. So is Apple reliable and can Apple be trusted?

    Running the IDE in a VM on Mac Book Pro?

    I am new to Mac. What is the Mac-share? Is that outside of the Windows 10 VM? So can the IDE inside the VM save/load files to/from outside the VM? What do you mean with "compile twice"?
  9. I am planning to buy a Mac Book Pro 15" with With Windows 10 Pro 64bit on Parallels and install the newest Delphi IDE in that Windows 10 Parallels VM. Are there any (compatibility) problems when running the IDE in a VM on Mac Book Pro? Any hints or recommendations?

    Passing back a string from an external program

    Windows Messages is not complicated: Pass the window handle of Program1 as a parameter to Program2 which then sends the string back to Program1 as a Windows Message. Or - if Program2 is a console type program: Simply (programmatically) read the console output of Program2.

    Resolve a uses clause unit path?

    Example: A unit's uses clause contains a unit DSiWin32, for example: I know that the unit's file path is: F:\Users\Peter\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\20.0\CatalogRepository\OmniThreadLibrary_3.07.6-Rio\src\DSiWin32.pas Question: Is there an easy function to extract this path from the Library paths of the current IDE? Example: MyPath := GetUnitPathFromCurrentLibrary('DSiWin32.pas');
  12. Peganza has kindly released a patch for Pascal Expert 9.5.0.0 to make it work with Delphi 10.3.1 (previously it worked with Delphi 10.3.2). From the Peganza website: "Pascal Expert is a new plugin for Embarcadero's Delphi IDE (RAD Studio). It does a static analysis of your source code, to detect possible issues and errors in your code. The results will help you better understand and produce code of higher quality, consistency, and reliability. Pascal Expert sits right in the Delphi IDE, so it lets you find problems earlier, and fix them right on the spot!" You can read more about Pascal Expert here: https://www.peganza.com/find-bugs-early-with-pascal-expert.html I highly recommend Pascal Expert to optimize your code and make it potentially error-free.

    The Embarcadero GetIt server could not be reached...

    Yes, it worked. Thanks.

    The Embarcadero GetIt server could not be reached...

    That worked in 10.3.1. But will I get those items specific for 10.3.2 and not for 10.3.1?

    Flow Diagram as a ProcedureList option

    This is the Pascal Analyzer 8.1.0.0 Call Tree report for the above example source code: However, when using this report, the user would have to buy Pascal Analyzer. So I probably will use the procedure list created by the GExperts procedure list. (Or the one used by the CnWizards procedure list).
