Unless you write an installer with the right manifest, don’t include Installer, Update, Upgrade, Setup, … in your EXE name

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/09/28

I’ve seen this question coming up a few times, and bumped into this at a client recently: the UAC dialog coming up when debugging a 32-bit executable.

This is caused (more details below) by Installer Detection Technology introduced in Windows Vista (with UAC) and tightened in more modern Windows versions.

The solution is to either:

  • not include Installer, Patch, Update, Upgrade, Setup, … in your EXE name
  • provide a correct manifest to your EXE (getting this right can be hard)
  • don’t use x86 as platform target

For software you don’t have source code for, you can alter the manifest with a requestedExecutionLevel elementFixing the way Vista Auto-detects Installers – Ben’s Writing.

A few links on Installer Detection Technology in Windows:

20 resources on migrating to Unicode with Delphi | Software on a String

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/07/08

Great post by Marjan Venema when you need to migrate your old Delphi programs to the modern Delphi world: 20 resources on migrating to Unicode with Delphi | Software on a String.

I’m glad that some of the links overlap with what I posted and presented in the past at:

Well done Marjan!

The way a wiki should work: List of Delphi language features and version in which they were introduced/deprecated – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/02/21

This is the way a wiki should work:

List of Delphi language features and version in which they were introduced/deprecated – Stack Overflow.

Thanks Simon Stuart for asking, and many others (especially Johan) for providing the info.

Note the version that is missing (;

Happy Birthday AppBuilder^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H Delphi

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/02/14

Normal people would give Valentine presents today.

But 20 years ago, Borland thought it was a nice idea to release Delphi. Then a revolutionary new tool and lots of scepticism. Now – after 20 years – still going strong, despite all kinds of funny things that management at Borland, InPrise, etc did and the wild ride the market had.

Happy birthday Delphi!
