Some notes on multi-touch and Windows

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/10/06

While fooling around with Microsoft Surface, you are astonished with the number of fingers it supports: 10 is no problem on the Samsung SUR40 which can also do full HD resolution (more specs here).

Not so with the standard Windows 7 touch support: that has only 2.

As I want to increase that to better mimic the development environment to the actual environment a few notes:

Delphi: path names both in .dpr and .dproj, why? (refactoring – How to reorganize the folder structure of my units in Delphi? – Stack Overflow)

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/09/27

Cool: learned something new here:

About the path names of files being in the .dproj as well as in the .dpr:

@Jeroen – Looks like msbuild might need those entries, otherwise they’re possibly redundant, AFAICT… In any case, there is not much editing involved, just delete ‘dccreference’ entries and then a ‘save all’ in the IDE regenerates them. – Sertac Akyuz

Delphi, solutions for `while debugging with Environment Variable “The program can’t start because ….dll is missing”‘

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/09/14

Two days ago I ran into the bug below while porting some code from Delphi 2006 to Delphi XE2, posted on StackOverflow, and got solutions in very little time.

Thanks Andreas HausladenDavid Heffernan, Ken WhiteSertac Akyuz, Rudy Velthuis, for answering, providing solutions and verifying!

Note that this worked up until Delphi XE, and has been fixed in Delphi XE3 (which for this project I can’t use as the client upgraded to XE2 without SA).

Problem

  • I get the error mentioned further on error when debugging an executable in Delphi XE2 update 4 under these circumstances:
  • that depends on mqic.dll from WebShpere that is in C:\Program Files \IBM\WebSphere MQ\bin\mqic.dll and C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere MQ\bin is on the system path (not on the user path).
  • is being debugged with an override environment variable in the Run -> Parameters -> Debugger -> Environment Block -> User overrides
  • Including System Variables on the same property page is checked

This is the error (it’s a Windows DLL load error marked “System Error”).

The program can’t start because mqic.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

Crap: VersionInfo handling broken as of Delphi XE2

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/09/11

Today I found out the hard way that you really need a build integration system for managing VersionInfo in Delphi applications: as of Delphi XE2 it is broken in the IDE.

See these links:

This is the only workable workaround so far:

Link clearance on the recent Delphi XE3 and WinRT stir

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/08/25

Just for my own record, a link clearance of WinRT in relation to Delphi.

I amended this a couple of time already, will try to do so over time: Read the rest of this entry »
