Delphi and stuff: The strange limitation of 64 threads

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/02/21

… there’s no need to use WaitForMultipleObjects in Step 2. It’s fairly easy to keep a counter of active threads in the pool (interlocked-incremented when a thread starts, interlocked-decremented when a thread is finished). When the counter reaches zero (no more active threads), signal an event. With only one event to wait for, you can use WaitForSingleObject

So no more 64-thread (MAXIMUM_WAIT_OBJECTS) limits for pools…

Looking for a run-time fix for CreateInOutError raising an EInOutError with the wrong string.

Does anyone have a run-time fix for CreateInOutError raising an EInOutError with Code=3 (correct) and Message='Invalid file name - %s' (incorrect because System.SysUtils should have used System.SysConst not System.RTLConst and System.RTLConst wrongly duplicates some resource strings in System.SysConst) See [WayBack] http://qc.embarcadero.com/wc/qcmain.aspx?d=129530.
It would be so cool if a fix fills in the %s with the invalid file name.
