Some links on Belise/Elise licensing server (yes, AppWave is dead or at least: should be)

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/08/15

Some links on the Embarcadero License Center server (formerly known as Belise and Elise) from my contributions to these G+ threads:

When for instance your workstations cannot communicate to the external license servers or you want to run concurrent Delphi/C++-Builder/RAD-Studio instances on your local network, you need to run the Elise licensing server on your network, which requires you to have a server with Java running somewhere.

Despite some of the documentation, it runs on more recent Windows versions too.

Not sure about the money: it’s just that a few clients of mine use it as it makes it easier to manage licenses when you switch contractors or not having various team members only use Delphi part of the time.

Experiments in Uniform Memory Management – grijjy blog

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/08/10

TL;DR of [WayBackExperiments in Uniform Memory Management – grijjy blog:

the closest we can get to uniform memory management is to use object interfaces

The reason is that cross platform memory management in Delphi is a mess.

Via: [WayBackErik van Bilsen – Google+ I share some results of my quest for a uniform memory management model across all platforms. For some reason, it also touches on old-school linked lists and new-school messaging…

Delphi Error: E1026 File not found: ‘Controls.res’ – Google Search

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/08/10

As since E1026 is [WayBackdocumented as x1026 since Delphi 2007 probably because it can manifest itself as W1026 as well, I thought Delphi Error: E1026 File not found: 'Controls.res' also be related to F1026: When the Delphi XE5 commandline compiler fails with error F1026: File not found: ‘False.dpr’

But it wasn’t.

Then I thought it might have to do with Unit Scope names.

Often an upgrade of a pre-XE2 project where old names of units (like Controls [no WayBack]) were used in stead of Unit Scoped [WayBack] prefixed units (like Vcl.Controls [WayBack]) wrongly makes the Unit Scope Names list in Project > Options > Delphi Compiler empty.

Such an empty list causes the normal mapping of unit name to scoped unit name as described in Unit Names Alphabetical List with Unit Scopes [WayBack] to fail. That results in a F2613 Unit ‘%s’ not found [WayBack] or rarely a F1027 Unit not found ‘%s’ or binary equivalents (%s) (Delphi) [WayBack].

So that wasn’t the cause either.

If you ever wonder why you get no (or incomplete) RTTI from a control that you…

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/08/08

Thanks Stefan Glienke for posting this a while ago:

If you ever wonder why you get no (or incomplete) RTTI from a control that you inherited from a DevExpress one – then look into where it has the following lines:


+Martin Wienold was wondering (and so was I at first) why he could not properly resolve a form from the DI container that inherited from TdxRibbonForm despite writing a public method with [Inject] attribute on it but it was never called.

Warning: If you are using DevExpress or any other source code that does this (changing the $RTTI directive) and build these sources together with your application (in contrast to using precompiled dcus or even packages) on a version <XE6 then you might suffer from this issue: [WayBack] #79943: {$ RTTI} flag scope which causes RTTI to disappear even from units that did not have the $RTTI in them.
