delphi – How to reset the download when the GetIt package manager fails? – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/07/08

Since GetIt is hardly, if at all documented, but has quite a few of problems, I will likely need to use this another time: [WayBack] delphi – How to reset the download when the GetIt package manager fails? – Stack Overflow

TL;DR:

Luis Navarro from Embacadero just explained to me:

Close the IDE, then delete the OmniThread folder from MyDocuments\Embarcadero\Studio\17.0\CatalogRepository After that, you have to edit the registry and delete also the Omnithread folder from HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Embarcadero\BDS\17.0\CatalogRepository\Elements
