application startup shutdown slow on dev. machine




I have a delphi 32 bit c/s app that connects to sql server and everything
works fine, but some time ago it started to take a long time on startup and
shutdown
on my dev. machine (a couple of minutes), while on other computers that have
significantly less resources than my dev. machine it starts up very quickly.

I suspect it's one of the standard updates like acrobat or other tools that
was installed and now this causes this.
Other than the slowdown for my app there are no problems.
Does anybody have any idea on how to troubleshoot this and find the problem
Are there any tools

Thank you

Vadim

Delphi 2007 Change applications language to Italian?

Hi , I could do with a little help !! I have writeen a standard delphi VCL 32 bit application with Delphi 2007 (Codegear RAD Studio) and I have now been informed that the application may be sold in Italy. The application is obviously all in English. Is there an easy way that I can set the application to a different language at start up so that all labels, buttons, captions edit and memo boxes will display in italian and when the user enters in information it is saved in italian. The application will only be run on Windows XP service pack 2 or higher or Vista 32bit.

The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005)

Please help me to fix problem: Last days my D2007 (update 3, december update) cannot run any project from inside IDE (F9). I ALWAYS receive this errror: The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005) This happens under both delphi and BCB personality. This happens with all projects (including empty projects with one empty form). This happens with any project settings (debug and release). But all projects runs fine outside IDE (if I run it manually by clicking Project.exe). So, this problem happens ONLY if I run program from IDE. I was try to un-install D2007 and manually delete all RAD Studio related files and folders from Common Files, Documents and Settings, Application Data, etc - then re-install Delphi from beginning - not helps. Still receive this error with all projects. It's looks like Windows/registry problem but I can't locate and fix it... Please help.... --- With best regards, Max Terentiev. Business Software Products.

D2007+Vista... application wont exit...

, Has anyone else encountered this... D2007 win32 project... migrated from D7 if that matters. About 3 outta 5 times that I run the application in the IDE it will lag terribly for a sec... then fail to exit... cant close it with window buttons, File/Exit etc. Only way to exit the app is to Reset. The other times it runs perfectly fine... even if i do the exact same steps to try to track a problem in the program... no memory leaks reported, it is compiled as a debug build. Just curious if anyone has seen apps in the D2007 ide fail to exit before.

Use XML-RPC interface as application's local API?

I have an software and thinking of providing API for third parties to interact with it. The first approach I came up is COM, but I really don't like this bloated, slow and hard-to-use-and-debug framwork; I remember long time ago in a thread discussing a similar topic a guy suggested using WEB SERVICE to provide programming interface, I thought that's good idea but I could not find a lightweight and easy to use framework to implement ( I use d7), recently I found RTC SDK and really like its remote function calls feature and the author claimed the calls can work with XML-PRC protocol and it's 100% compatible with it, I also like it's lightweight and easy to use. At the beginning what I look for is a lib for developing a collaborative system and now I found that it can also serve as a local API for my application. With this approach, people use any language that supports XML-PRC can interface with my app, which is a advantage over COM. What's your thoughts Edwin.

functions in multithread applications

I wondered if using functions at the same time from threads can cause errors. I'm asking this question because sometimes i got "Invalid floating point operation" from MilliSecondsBetween function. Do i need to use synchronization for calling this function what happens if two threads enter a function at the same time As my second question is GetMem function in Delphi ThreadSafe

[D2007] MDI application?

Hi I'd like to build an MDI application that would look like this: http://img340.imageshack.us/img340/2...panemdimd3.jpg IOW, an XP-style taskpane in one, child, fixed, left-aligned window, and two child windows that pop-up when the user has selected either an item in the taskpane or a row in the grid. Do you know if it's possible to have a fixed child window to host the taskpane, or should I do things in a totally different way

TTimer and application close

I'm working with BDS2006, I have an MDI application with several TTimer components. What is the best way to be sure that when I'm closing my application, no timer event will be triggered When I close my application I disable all the timers but: Example, if some timer event works for 2 seconds, and I'm closing my application when it's working, an access violation will occur. Is there a way to control if a timer is executing

Identifying Calling application from a DLL.

I need to find out if it is possible to find out what application is calling my DLL. One of two applications will be calling my dll, one is an EXE the other is a DLL used by the EXE. When the EXE calles my dll directly I need a certian behavior (initializing data modules and verifying my tables exists) but when the other DLL calls my DLL I don't need to go thru the slow process of verifying my data tables. Unfortunately I can't have the code for the EXE or the other DLL changed so I can't have them call a different exported procedure. Does anyone know how I can identify the calling application from within my DLL

Can I use TStaticText in a non-GUI application?

I have an existing app that has implemented some rather convoluted communications procedures towards an instrument in a number of classes. In the end this application sets a property in the class to point to a TStaticText component on a form in the application. The class will regularly update the caption of this component as data arrives. Now I am trying to use this underlying functionality in a service application where I want to transfer the contents of the display over TCP/IP sockets. And to keep stuff stable I don't want to dig into the class structure too much. So I thought that if I let the TCP/IP class create a TStaticText object in code and set this as the one used by the instrument communication, will that work even though the component is not on a form Just checking for advice before throwing a lot of time at it... /BoB

Delphi application is requiring the "Win95 Compatibilty mode" to be configure before running in a client server setup. Help!

My Delphi application will not run in a client server mode setup unless the compatibility mode is set to "Run Compatibility for Win 95". I am not sure how this happened, it was working fine and then something changed that is requiring this. I am not sure if its a component or how I have Delphi setup. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I am using Delphi 2006 on a XP machine. This also did this with Delphi 6. Semone
