IDE Fix Pack 4.9.1 restores AutoSave=off support

By | April 25, 2012

With IDE Fix Pack 4.9 I wanted to educate those who live with the risk of loosing their day work due to an IDE or computer crash… Or to tell the truth, the unsaved-file hash table wasn’t able to find the first filename that was put into it because its hash value was zero instead of the actual hash value. And because I’m a “AutoSave user” and I trained my coworkers (aka testers) to also use AutoSave, I never noticed this bug. Maybe I should do an “open field-test” in the future.

So here is version 4.9.1. I hope that version 4.10 or 5.0 (depends on how many bugs/performance issues I find and how many I can fix) the “.1” and “.2” aren’t necessary. Both 4.8.1/2 and 4.9.1 were necessary due to changes I made to my Delphi version (D2010 editor kernel in D2009, AutoSave=on).

    any chance you show some more love for Delphi 2007 in the future?

      1. pitfiend

        anyway, thanks for your efforts and improvements!

    Hi Andreas,
    Does IDE Fix Pack 4.9.1 also support XE2 sp3? For certain reasons i cannot update to sp4 right now.

  3. alexander

    Hi Andreas,

    What about DFMCheck for XE2? It has very useful Open/Close all forms

    Thanks!

    Hi Andy,
    Just curious how do you make all these patches ? Do you reverse engineer binary code ?

    After successfull install the IdeFixPack 4.9.1 (and other Versions after 3.5) my Delphi breaks up the start with error message:

    Der Wert darf nicht NULL sein.
    Parametername: key

    Version 3.5 of IdeFixPack is the latest which works fine.

      Is this the first or second error message? In the Delphi-Praxis Forum is a posting that also shows “Registrierung der Assembly “Borland.Build.Tasks.Common.dll” fehlgeschlagen.”.

      Is there a “Details” button with a stack trace?
      If not, could you start the IDE with the IDE:
      1. Start “bds.exe -rBDSPlain” to get a “first start” IDE
      2. Use “Run/Load Process” (Start/Prozess laden”)
      3. Enter “$(BDS)\bin\bds.exe” into the “Process” edit box and press the “Load” button.
      4. Post the call stack of all exceptions that occur during the Start here, so I can have a look at it.

        I’m very thankful for your commitment.

        It’s the first and only error message.

          Does this go away if you uninstall IDE Fix Pack?

          Are you still using IDE Fix Pack 3.5, or was it more “it started to fail around the time when 4.0 was released” ?

          1. utzel

            Yes, it goes away if i uninstall the Fix Pack.

            I have tested 4.6.6, 4.7.1 and last the 4.9.1 with the same error result. Only 3.5 works fine… I could try other versions between 3.5 and 4.6.6 tomorrow if it would help you?

          2. utzel

            I’m sorry, all downloadable versions are 4.9.1 only so i cann’t start more tests…

          3. Andreas Hausladen Post author

            Can you try this:
            Open a console window: cmd.exe

            set IDEFixPack.DisabledPatches=IDE.DisablePackageCache
            bds.exe

            set IDEFixPack.DisabledPatches=Start.XmlSerializer
            bds.exe

            set IDEFixPack.DisabledPatches=DotNet.GlobalizationSearch
            bds.exe

            Maybe one of those patches causes your problem.

    Thank you very much! The first one solved the problem.

      1. utzel

        No, all is fine now. I am very grateful for your help!

    Bug:
    With installed IdeFixPack 4.9.1 I cannot open anymore rc Project files.
    It was working with older FixPack’s and it is working without FixPack.

    Registration procedure, Fs_idbreg.Register in package d:\delphi xe\Bpl\dclfsDB15.bpl raised exception class EAccessViolation: Access violation at address 5003A013 in module ‘rtl150.bpl’. Read of address FFFFFFC8.

    I have some components (FastReport fastScript), wich worked before installing a fix.
    After appling a patch i`v got an above error. Uninstalling did`t help

    1. Andreas Hausladen Post author

      After uninstalling IDE Fix Pack you must start the IDE twice. The first time it will recreate the package cache and the second time it will use it.
      IDE Fix Pack does not permanent changes to the IDE or the compiler. If the IDEFixPack.dll isn’t loaded, nothing is changed. It also doesn’t write to the registry or any other config file. All changes are done in memory. The bug is in those packages that don’t harmony with other packages, what they must do if the package cache is disabled or you start the IDE for the very first time.
