How to launch just the Delphi personality

Rant: Don't want Unicode just give me a working IDE

Today I had to install RAD Studio on my Vista notebook. I'll be on a trip to make some system installation in another city and I'm going to use my notebook as a mobile developement station. Anyway, I installed RAD studio (only Delphi for Win32) which was flawless. I tried testing one of my project in newly installed Delphi and it started to give strange errors. It complained about missing DCU units. I checked the search path and it was correct. I have copied exactly the same directory structure from my Desktop XP PC to my Vista notebook. I checked all the PAS files and there were in the place. I re-checked the search path for both Debug/Release configurations and again Delphi refused to compile my project. If I go and add so-called missing PAS files to the project then it works but how could I add more than 100 files manually. Being a Delphi user for 13 years I was baffled with no clue at hand. I restarted my notebook and this time things started to be more strange. It compiled one of my projects but refused the other one. It was like a nightmare. One of the compiled project produced no output at all. It was a Library and though it was compiled successfully the resulted BPL was no where in my Harddrive. path settings were correct. required files were in place but Delphi refused to compile. Exactly the same setup on my XP desktop works fine. Has anyone else faced such a weird behavior from Delphi 2007 under Vista I didn't had time to go through the details of the problem. It wasted one D2007 activation key and costed me 2 hours with lots of frustrations. Time was running fast. I uninstalled D2007 and installed a pirated copy of Delphi 7.0. (Sorry but didn't feel guilty at all) Delphi 7.0 was working fine. It compiled everything as it should. I started wondering which one is Vista comptabile D7 or D2007. Fortunately my projects can be compiled in D7 too so I can go and do my installation.

Calling or launching a program from D7

- I would like to launch another executable (a label making program) from inside Delphi. I only want to launch and have the user work in that program as deed, then when the user decides to quit the control goes back to the Delphi application right after the call. Nothing fancy like passing parameters, just starting up the program, then returning when the user is done with the label program. I know in a .bat its a simple CALL command but I can't find the equivalent in D7.

D2007 just dissapears on opening form

Hi! Now the * hit the fan. After upgrading Vista to SP1 (though some time passed so it *might* be something else but I think not anyway) when opening some forms the IDE just vanisches (poff) from the screen as well as from the process explorer. I don't know what to do or where to begin. I would rather not start uninstalling and reinstalling as it is a rather time-consuming way of pinpointing the problem. My D2007 has the third upgrade (was applied before the SP1 stuff) and my projects worked (could be loaded) then. This is very troublesome and I can only hold my breath as to whether I'll be required to recomiple before this issue is resolved (scary). Greatly appreciate any help, TIA, /Dany --

typed constants - just curious

I would appreciate the following construction: type TColor = array[0..2] of Real; const red: TColor = (1.0, 0.0, 0.0); green: TColor = (0.0, 1.0, 0.0); blue: TColor = (0.0, 0.0, 1.0); black: TColor = (0.0, 0.0, 0.0); NiceColors: array[0..1] of TColor = (red, green); (*) UglyColors: array[0..1] of TColor = (blue, black); (*) What is the reason that the compiler complains at the lines marked with (*). I know that the typed constants are not true constants but I find this construction quite handy - or maybe it's fatally dangerous construction jindra , Jindra Parus wrote: > I would appreciate the following construction: > > type > TColor = array[0..2] of Real; > > const > red: TColor = (1.0, 0.0, 0.0); > green: TColor = (0.0, 1.0, 0.0); > blue: TColor = (0.0, 0.0, 1.0); > black: TColor = (0.0, 0.0, 0.0); > NiceColors: array[0..1] of TColor = (red, green); (*) > UglyColors: array[0..1] of TColor = (blue, black); (*) > > What is the reason that the compiler complains at the lines marked > with (*). Because blue should be in NiceColors. Seriously: the compiler needs true constants, i.e. constants that are not typed, there. It will not take typed constants, even if this were possible, in reality. If you want that, you'll have to make NiceColors and UglyColors variables and fill them in code: NiceColors[0] := red; NiceColors[1] := green; etc... -- Rudy Velthuis [TeamB] http://www.teamb.com "A poem is never finished, only abandoned." -- Paul Valery (1871-1945)

Delphi 2007 - IDE just closes!

Finally I decided to move from TurboDelphi Pro 2006 to Delphi 2007 (latest ISO available) and now I'm suffering from a very critical problem: After loading a project and start working on it, for no apparent reason, the IDE just closes! No errors or messages is shown. It justs disappears! Everytime this happens, I loose everything I was doing :-( Looks like switching to D2007 was bad decision. Anyone suffering with this problem Anything that can be done Carlos

word to int64 bug (delphi6)

if you assign "-" of a word-Variable to an int64 one, you get unexpectet results: var aWord:word; ainteger:integer; AInt64:int64; begin aWord:=2; aInteger:=2; AInt64:=-aWord; writeln(inttostr(AInt64)); //you get 4294967294 instead of -2 AInt64:=0-aWord; writeln(inttostr(AInt64)); //-2 AInt64:=-int64(aWord); writeln(inttostr(AInt64)); //-2 AInt64:=-aInteger; writeln(inttostr(AInt64)); //-2 end. I suppose this to be a bug in Delphi 6. Is this still there in Delphi 2007,2008,...
