My experience with installing the 126.96.36.199 package was really bad. i assume you wrote the installation info, for Win7 users, and i (still) use Windows XP. so for me, the MSBuilder.exe's version was 3.5, but the "dominant" .NET version was 2.0 for some reason. it took me 2 days (...) to finally install the IW package because of microsoft's incompatibility between the .NET's versions, since i knew nothing about .NET ... can you add some info in the "install.txt" for the XP users (which i still think there are some) please? it wasn't like a regular software fix, so i can write here a few words on how i managed to fix my problem with .NET 2.0/3.5 problem if you want.
2. when i start Delphi (XE2) i get a series of errors : bds.exe system error The procedure entry point Tmsiwstrings@initialization$qqrv@ could not be located in the dynamic link library iw12tmsdxe2.bpl The procedure entry point Iwtmspckdsncolor@initialization$qqrv@ could not be located in the dynamic link library iw12tmsdedxe2.bpl
then, there is an error message window saying : Can't load package c:\delphixe2\Bpl\iw12tmsgriddedxe2.bpl. Process not found. Do you want to attempt to load this package the next time a project is loaded?
Yes | No
3. when i load one of my projects, i get this message like TMS removed the TIWAdvCheckGroup.OnAsyncClick's event... : Error reading TIWAdvCheckGroup1.OnAsyncClick : Property OnAsyncClick does not exist. Ignore the error and continue? NOTE: Ignoring the error may cause components to be deleted or property values to be lost.
Ignore | Cancel | Ignore All
of course, when i look at TIWAdvCheckGroup1's events in the Object Inspector - there is no "OnAsyncClick" event. i got this error only for TIWAdvCheckGroup.
it would save us, a lot of time if you make a setup program for the components, that will also remove the older installation and settings.
before this installation with MSBuilder, i never had any installation problem with the TMS IW pack. i cleaned the old installation before installing this one of course. using Delphi XE2-Update4, IW12.2.23
We do not use MSBUILDER.EXE in our installer, so this cannot be a cause of problems. You do not need MSBUILDER.EXE (it is actually MSBUILD.EXE) to compile and/or install our components.
2) This error points to mixing old & new versions of package files. It is explained in the FAQ. When you make sure that ALL old version files are cleaned up before installing a new version, this problem should not happen.
3) This points to the same issue of still having old version .BPL files around on your system.
