    To “activate” the activex menu after installing from the web installer (A workaorund from Marcu himself

    In the registry
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Embarcadero\BDS\18.0\Known IDE Packages\Delphi … delphicompro240.bpl, remove the underscores (__) pre-pended to the value (Untitled).

  2. I missed the webinar yesterday and plan to still watch it because my main question I wanted to find answers for about the new installer is if they have enabled it to be automated yet? I do not want to have to keep clicking next, next, next and more importantly it is currently the only piece of software I have to manually install when building a new machine or setup a build server. I have tried using some of the undocumented command line options but have not found them to be consistent enough to include in my chocolatey or similar configuration scripts.

    That probably isn’t a serious big though (as in not affecting many people) – ActiveX is surely not commonly used any more. In fact I thought it was deprecated or even completely removed on all major browsers, including Internet Explorer?

    I like the new installer and think it’s much slicker and simpler than the old one. It’s faster, too.

      Actually the “ActiveX” section in Delphi covers a lot of COM stuff which is still used broadly in Windows, not only “ActiveX” add-ons for Internet Explorer or Visual Basic.

    Does anybody trust a web installer from Embarcadero, dowloading code to your machine that maybe you’re forced to run as a privileged user?
