Outlook 2013 cannot logon to gmail any more

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/09/20

A problem on a PC I did not use often: as of a sudden, Outlook 2013 could not access a gmail account any more.

Luckily, Outlook showed me this message in a dialog box:

Please log in via your web browser: https://support.google.com/mail/accounts/answer/78754 (Failure)

This directed me to [WayBack] Use IMAP to check Gmail on other email clients – Gmail Help

In turn that pointed to [WayBack] Let less secure apps access your account – Google Account Help

Finally that one indicated the configuration page changed to https://myaccount.google.com/lesssecureapps

This is similar to the cause of “the user name or password for imap.gmail is incorrect” – iPad, iPod or iPhone with iOS < 7

It all comes down to gmail forcing OAUTH2: [WayBack] tls – Why doesn’t outlook 2013 meet modern security standards? – Information Security Stack Exchange

Dave’s Development Blog – Using CodeSite on interfaced objects

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/09/20

Reminder to self: [WayBackDave’s Development Blog – Using CodeSite on interfaced objects:

Note to self…

If using CodeSite to log Constructor and Destructor behaviour on interfaced objects, make sure its the first unit in the project so that it is the first unit initialised AND THE LAST unit finalised!

This will save you hours and hours hunting down shutdown AVs 🙁

Or in my projects, the uses list in the Delphi project should be this order:

  1. FastMM4Bootstrap
  2. CodeSite
