Brutal way to prevent memory errors in Delphi XE7: rename DLLs, loose part of the functionality, but less memory issues – via G+

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/03/05

When the suggestions from Out-of-Memory in RAD XE7 and -noparser from Tried to patch BDS.exe fails to, then this suggestion by Brian Hamilton on G+ might work:

From a post in the EMB forum, a work around for XE7 is

I follow the hint of Thomas Grusche renaming the following files:

  • Borland.Studio.Delphi.dll
  • Borland.Studio.Refactoring.dll
  • refactoride210.bpl

This makes the XE7 IDE usable again.

Just the refactoring feature aren’t available anymore.

OpenSSL on Windows: fixing the “unable to write ‘random state'” (via: Stack Overflow)

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/03/05

If you are running OpenSSL as a regular user, or cannot perform “RunAs Administrator”, and you get this error message:

unable to write 'random state'

then make sure you have set your environment variables correctly before running OpenSSL:


A full batch file front-end for OpenSSL.exe is this one:

Visual Studio: Find unused code? – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/03/04

Interesting answers to Visual Studio: Find unused code? – Stack Overflow.

  • Using Visual Studio 2008+ to remove unused using statements
  • Using the [Obsolete] attribute of code you suspect is not used.
  • Using ReSharper
  • Using NDepend
  • Using FxCop

Delphi anonymous method formatting thread going into the direction of functional programming – via: Markus Joos – Google+

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/03/03

Markus Joos started a nice G+ thread on anonymous method formatting which ended up into a discussion of functional programming and a peek into what Spring4D 1.3 can offer.

Note you might need to be part of the G+ Delphi Developers Community to read the thread.

RAD Studio 2015 Roadmap – Blogs

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/03/03

Odd that the RAD Studio 2015 Roadmap on the Embarcadero site got published by Brian Alexakis which is relatively unknown in the Delphi community.

I wish that ARC for Windows and Linux x86/x64 were on the list: the first since it makes it so much easier to solve ARC problems in libraries, the second since Kylix had a Linux x86 compiler and an RTL (yes, Kylix didn’t have Unicode nor Generics, but maybe the Linux and OS X targets might be too far apart).

I like that there is a roadmap for 2015. And glad with what is on it: 4K support (hopefully also done for the IDE), C++ LLVM compiler, IDE large memory (though I wonder how they do that), native HTTP (hopefully WinHTTP for SOAP and REST).

In the mean time, Kris Houser has indicated XE8 is in beta. Which is good know as well.
