Just registered online to download the community edition.
Got the email with license. Installed. Come to enter license and once all characters entered the other fields gray out.... Click register, comes up with no valid registration.
Not a good start...
I do have 10.2 installed if that means anything...
Any help advice appreciated.
I clicked the web registration link. Received the email with the registration .txt file. Followed the instructions and clicked import to select the file. Success there but then when clicking register and entering the serial number again, click register and it fails again.
So I deleted the 10.3.3 licenses. (10.2 Tokyo is still there)
Tried again. No luck.
Not happy. Maybe pebkac but why so difficult???
Uninstalled and deleted the license 10.3 using 10.2 license manager.
Noticed that if I start the license manager again the 10,3 license is still there,... wtf???
Anyway, reinstalled, it saw the "deleted" license and installed.
Now when run, presented with the large list of platforms. Unselected all except the Delphi community edition. Then presented with the optional components. It failed on Interbase. Wouldn't download it. So start again, unselect all those platforms I dont want, didn't select the intebase, just help and it tries to download interbase again. Keeps failing. Click cancel. Get the Rad Studio IDE so I think good to go,
Not so quick. Wont open any of my 10.2 projects. Missing Delphi.Personality.
I think the Idera personality has hair all over it. How many hoops does one have to jump through to install and run the once you beaut Delphi IDE???
This is a really sad and bad indictment on what was such a great product.
When i select tools / mange platforms, it is a lottery what is preselected. Nonetheless, whether i leave all the preselected or just win community32bit, it fails on download interbase redist, even though interbase is not selected in the options. There is an operation error message, invalid serial number. Just tried with all defaults now fails on VC redist 64, internal check error. Nothing else, nothing descriptive. 64 bit C++ wasn't even selected...
20 years ago there were some pretty shocking software installs around. With InnoSetup as a good example, most lifted their game.
Rather sad that a company selling software development tools can't do better. All too complicated and left hand not knowing what right is doing...
I just want a usable Delphi...
