  1. When I change System.SysConst.pas or Vcl.Consts.pas (to translate some messages), I always put them to the folder where my app is and I also use Project, Add and manually add them. But I always keep the interface part the same as in original file, otherwise all dependent units have to be recompiled.

    Do you need an ARM64 compiler for Windows?

    I hope they keep it the way it is - can you imagine how many broken versions we would have to suffer if they now moved .bpls to another process? πŸ™‚

    Trying to install JCL but I got error

    Almost all my problems with JCL and JVCL installs were because of I had somewhere on the disk (on the path) another instance of JCL/JVCL, which was (partially) used instead of the new version.
  4. I guess you cannot.
  5. What about this: SELECT rdb$get_context('SYSTEM', 'ENGINE_VERSION') as version from rdb$database;
  6. You can use instsvc.exe and run all of them as service simultaneously. When using instsvc.exe, use "-n" and create unique names for them.

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

    I was not sure about the sarcasm, but decided to reply, so that someone does not believe it blindly πŸ™‚

    Even native code may run slow, when compiler does not use registers efficiently, uses superfluous jumps etc.

    In forward declaration of a class, compiler immediatelly knows the size of that type. For records, their size would be unknown in forward declaration.

    Manage Features not working.

    https://blogs.embarcadero.com/getit-update-additional-rad-studio-12-getit-packages-are-now-available/ There is a note: "Customers who have installed RAD Studio 12 using the online installation process won’t have the ability to add new platforms and core features to the product via the Manage Features dialog. In order to do this, they will need to uninstall and then reinstall using the new inline release." Could this be the reason?

    The GetIt server is back online - With the 12.0 Patch 1

    Wow! I think I'll open a bottle of wine today πŸ™‚
  13. I mean this one: https://quality.embarcadero.com/browse/RSP-43274 (Arithmetic operations on record fields return incorrect results in certain cases if the "Optimization" compiler option is enabled.) This looks like a showstopper bug for me, because it can generate wrong result anywhere in the application. Turning off optimizations will "solve" the problem, but the result will be that all my customers will write to me about how the new version of the app is slow. And as for distribution of the hotfix - is it really impossible to distribute the fix in year 2024 other than through a non-functioning Getit? Downloading files from my.embarcadero.com works normally, so why not put the patch there?
  14. Lack of information, inability to fix in a reasonable time and inability to fix the "integer division bug" that makes Delphi 12 unusable for Win32 applications 😞
