Migration Tool (11 --> 11.1)

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I've never used the Migration Tool that comes with Delphi.

Does it migrate IDE settings and installed packages?

 

Thinking of using it for Delphi 11 to Delphi 11.1.

 

Any tips?

Ok.  I thought we need to re-install packages etc 

Not when you go with the default setup settings that keep your registry intact.

 

BTW, you can as well use the migration tool to save the registry settings and restore them later - just to be on the safe side.

Luckily I saved the registry settings!

11.1 Web Install did not preserve any settings.

 

Thanks.

Faced somehow the same issue. All packages were left, but search path was screwed (some path survived the update while a lot didn't).

Did you let the new setup uninstall or did you do it on your own?

What did you select when you were asked to remove the registry entries or to keep them?

I let the new setup uninstall.

 

And I selected to keep registry.  I believe the options were 

1. Yes - remove registry entries

2. No - do not remove.  (default)   <---- simply left at as is.

I did the same and all registry entries persisted. Even the Win64 library ones.

I too selected "option 2" and all the registry entries seem to have persisted. My (limited) use of 11.1 makes me feel it is a great improvement over 11.0

It would be helpful if we could identify the reason why it doesn't work for some of us.

After downloading the Web Install file, I ran it and soon after popped up some 

error (I don't remember what it was), I clicked continue and it kept popping up

some error even though it kept continuing.

 

At some point, it would not continue ... so I ran the Web Install file again.

That's when it installed Delphi ... but did not keep registry entries.

IIRC, keeping the registry settings is something the uninstaller does (or does not).

For some reason, 11.1 decided to discard the TMS and Eurekalog components on install, but it kept the general reg settings for the IDE.
Didn't check the 64-bit paths - because we are still on 32-bit due to the state of the 64-bit debugger.

Not for me. I used a Web installer. During the installation, I chose to keep the settings.
