Delphi sorcery: Generics, modules and typeinfo

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/02/23

the release of 1.2 is almost there! We are working hard to deliver it shortly after the next Delphi release which will happen … soonish, I think. ;)

The release/1.2 branch has been around for a while – please take a look if you haven’t already. It contains a lot of new features and bugfixes. I will tell you more about some of the amazing features next time which won’t take as long as it took since the last blog post – promise. :)

Apart from a very interesting take on DI resolvers, the above great info too!

Please take a look at spring4d/branch/release/1.2 as it has been very stable for quite some time.

Windows 10 – language neutral batch file to start Windows

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/02/22

A while ago, I bitched that Microsoft moved away the Windows Update out of the Control panel into a language depended place (in Windows 10 1511 update broke the Hyper-V networking – Fix network connection issues).

Since then I had to maintain too many locales running Windows 10. So here is the batch file:

for /f "delims=" %%A in ('PowerShell -Command "(Get-Culture).Name"') do explorer "%LocalAppData%\Packages\windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Indexed\Settings\%%A\AAA_SystemSettings_MusUpdate_UpdateActionButton.settingcontent-ms"

It uses these tricks:

  1. Set output of a command as a variable (in this case a for loop variable)
  2. Execute PowerShell script in a .bat file
  3. PowerShell Get-Culture (which gets a .NET CultureInfo instance)
  4. CultureInfo.Name property (which has the nl-NL, en-US, etc codes in it)

It replaced this simple batch-file which has worked for like 10 years:

%windir%\System32\rundll32.exe url.dll,FileProtocolHandler wuapp.exe
