Unit SOUT was compiled with a different version of ZIN.Tcat... re-building doesn't fix it

Everyone, I changed a type I made called Tcat in unit ZIN and re-built the project. Unfortunatley the error poped up even after a re-build so I assumed the DCUs might be messed up. So, I renamed the DCUs and then re-built and got a 'File Not Found SOUT.dcu'. I put the path to the PAS files in my library path and browse path and I still get the same errors. I re-named the DCUs back to their original names and I'm getting the original error again about being compiled with a different version. Any ideas

I thought D2007 was supposed to address the 'dummy wndow' in Vista previews?

, Im probably missing something simple here but I have a D2007 app... Upgraded D7 project. But the application doesnt show as a live preview in the vista taskbar previews or in the 3d flip thingy. It just shows as a blank form or a blank form with a Dephi icon in the center. Id read this was caused by a hidden main form used in delphi applications and that this was corrected in D2007... so how do you get things working Inquiring minds and all. ;-)

Why the new string "policy" was a bad decision

Nick Hodges (CodeGear) wrote: > Actually, Windows itself is Unicode based, so you are /now/ converting > from AnsiString to Unicode for every API call, and you won't have to do > that with UnicodeString. Ok. Seamless converting is one thing (even if it was being converted already people didn't know it -- that's a good thing. ), requiring people to check and/or update all their code is another. Why the heck is that so bad to require people to review, update, or change change their sources just because CodeGear decided to make the default string type Unicode Think about it ... Some things that pop into my head are: (1) Well some of us deal with "legacy code". Do I really have to explain here that there are thousands of projects out there that may have been put on the "back burner" for a few years but may require an update later So now these applications will have to be "checked" or updated in order to introduce changes Isn't that creating problems for other developers for no good reason ( A potential answer to this problem: So instead of upgrading these developers will probably JUST KEEP and use their old Delphi.) (2) , what about all the code on the internet I'm not sure people realize the brain power required to comb-through all sample code you download off the internet just because it does "funny things" involving ansistrings. So now I have to "check" other peoples' sources for compatibility problems ( , good luck finding those problems too. ) Yes, a compiler flag would've been very useful; It would've solved a lot of issues I just mentioned. UGGGGGGGGGGG!!! This wasn't what Delphi was supposed to be about!!! Old code was suppose to work with the new Delphi. Now, it "may" or "may not". So is that what it's about now: Making it easy for CodeGear to upgrade their software while at the same time decreasing Delphi developers productivity in the real world I don't think so ...

Is it good idea to Save/Load large TObjects using Stream ReadComponent/WriteComponent

I use TStream.ReadComponent and TStream.WriteComponent to save my Persistent object(TClientServer, can be up to 50mb in size) to stream and move to another application and load it again. This code works fine for some time and then it start throwing exception "Out of memory" on line AStream.ReadComponent(ASaver); while trying to load received stream to Object. Is this code suitable for large TObjects transferring
