To resolve this issue you need to get access to the latest beta. To get the latest beta send an email to the address in the about box and the beta will be sent to you.

Delphi 2005 crashes when I select the Win32 radio button in the conversion dialog when loading a project file from a previous Delphi version. I am using a Win32 only configuration.

When you open a project file from a previous Delphi version in Delphi 2005 (i.e. a myproject.dpr file), you are prompted with a dialog that allows you to open the project as a VCL.NET application or as a Win32 application.

If you are using a Win32 only personality, you should not be prompted with this dialog because you only want to work in Win32 so Delphi 2005 should automatically convert it to Win32 for you.

If you are seeing this dialog you need to make sure that you only have the Win32 personality activated for your configuration. To verify this do the following:

  1. Load your configuration in Delphi Configuration Manager
  2. Select the Config menu item
  3. In the Config menu there are 3 menu items list. These should be 
    1. Delphi.Win32
    2. Delphi.NET
    3. C#Builder
  4. This is a list of available personalities. If the personality is installed then a check mark will be displayed next to it. The only personality that should have a check mark in a Win32 only configuration is the Delphi.Win32 one.
  5. Make sure only the Delphi.Win32 personality is selected.

How do I enable the Data Explorer for my Win32 Only configuration.
If you have selected on of the Win32 Only personalities for your Delphi 2005 configuration you may have noticed that the Data Explorer is not accessible within the IDE. This is because the Data Explorer relies on .NET. Enabling the Data Explorer depends on which base configuration you used:

Win32 Only
  1. Load your configuration in Delphi Configuration Manager
  2. Find and check DataExplorer90.bpl
  3. Find and check dotnetcoreide90.bpl
  4. Save and run your configuration
  5. The Data Explorer should now be accessible from the View menu in Delphi 2005

Win32 (with refactoring)
  1. Load your configuration in Delphi Configuration Manager
  2. Find and check DataExplorer90.bpl
  3. Save and run your configuration
  4. The Data Explorer should now be accessible from the View menu in Delphi 2005

Having just a .NET personality installed and attempting to import older Delphi projects.
If you have selected to install just the Delphi.NET personality in Delphi 2005, you will not be able to upgrade Delphi Win32 projects to be Delphi .NET projects. You will need to upgrade your Win32 projects in a configuration that has both the Delphi .NET and Delphi Win32 personalities activated.
There is a base configuration for Delphi 2005 for this.

Enabling Quality Insight within Delphi 2005.
To enable Quality Insight load up your configuration in Delphi Configuration Manager and make sure the package exceptiondiag90.bpl is selected. Make sure you save the configuration.

Now if the IDE gives you an error, you will get the opportunity to send an error report to QualityCentral about the error. I encourage any users that are getting errors to submit their reports (you can do so anonymously if you like). The Quality Insight reports submitted prior to Update 3 helped the Borland engineers fix a bug in Update 3.

Once your report has been added, you can view them using a QualityCentral client. Naturally I recommend JED, QC available from www.jed-software.com.

After applying Delphi 2005 Update 3, my About Box still displays Update 2.
If you are running a Win32 based configuration with Delphi 2005 the About Box will not be updated to indicate that Update 3 has been installed. This is because the Win32 configurations do not use a package that contains this information.

The package that provides this information to the IDE appears to be delphidotnetide90.bpl. Naturally if you are running a Win32 configuration, you do not want to include this package as it isn't required.

To verify the update has installed correctly please refer to the documentation provided with the update.
