Yes, I know. I downloaded Delphi 11 yesterday late in the evening and installed it. Then I spent about half an hour creating the GExperts project for it and adapting some include files, but never finished it. Today won't fare any better. Maybe on the weekend.

I ran across the same problem the OP did.  Many thanks for working on this!

Thomas, many thanks for your valuable work! If I ever get any money out of my business I will donate it to you!

Appreciate the work too.

 

I've been trying to modify the source myself to get it compiled on Alexandria, and making some progress, but I've hid a brick wall in the GX_OtaUtils unit. Telling me there are function declarations that don't agree with each other and I cannot find where the multiple declarations are (e.g. GxOtaGetEditorLine) for the life of me.

 

I just can't use Delphi without GExperts. It's too painful  when I've been used to it for years. Until GExperts is working, D11 will have to wait...

It's the same for me. Am I addicted?

FYI - This is how the two versions are appearing on my PC with a 4k monitor.

This is loaded and working.

Is it allowed to upload executables here in the forum?

The sources compile now.

I can confirm this for r3589:

But how to install \Binaries\GExpertsRS110.dll?

 

\BuildInstall\GExperts.iss has not yet been updated to Alexandria 

 

In \BuildInstall\MakeInstallers.cmd I have updated the ISCC.exe path to my existing path:

set iscc="C:\Program Files (x86)\Inno Setup 6\ISCC.exe"

 

...and then executed MakeInstallers.cmd (with no apparent errors). However, the directory \BuildInstall\Output remains empty!

In GExperts.iss I have added the Alexandria compiler definition:

 

#ifdef RS110
  #define IDEShortName "RADStudio"
  #define IDELongName  "RAD Studio"
  #define IDEVer       "11.0"
  #define DLLSuffix    "RS110"
  #define IDERegName   "BDS"
  #define IDERegVer    "22"   
#endif

 

Is this correct?

If you update your sources, you will now find a Register-GExperts-XX110.cmd script in .\binaries which will register the DLL with the IDE. All other required files are already in .\binaries so it should work.

That works:

Please also add an UNREGISTER script. Thank you!

Installer files are now also updated.

After executing MakeInstallers.cmd, the \BuildInstall\Output directory is still empty!

 

(Of course, I have updated the ISCC path in MakeInstallers.cmd to my existing one)

You can uninstall GExperts from within the IDE using the Experts Manager expert.

This works only, if you have Inno Setup installed. The installer for the Inno Setup version I use (which is still compatible with Windows XP) is in the directory .\BuildInstall\InnoSetup_5.6.1

As I wrote:

My Inno Setup path is: C:\Program Files (x86)\Inno Setup 6\ISCC.exe

 

So the path assignment in MakeInstallers.cmd is:

set iscc="C:\Program Files (x86)\Inno Setup 6\ISCC.exe"

Purely FYI.  Attempting to build rev 3598 this morning for D2007, D10.4.2 & D11 gives the following..

"D:\GExperts\source\framework\GX_BaseForm.pas(50): error E2003: Undeclared identifier: 'TemporarilyDisableHighDpi' [D:\GExperts\Projects\DelphiXx110Alexandria\GExpertsRS110.dproj]

Of course, Delphi references depend on the Delphi version.

 

On a Win 11 PC.

Depends on what you changed. If it was only to get it to compile, then yes, I made the changes. Did you change anything else?

Sorry, I missed one unit in the last commit. It should work now.
