Full of optimism, I installed the newly purchased package. I didn't fool myself and knew there would be some problems. The good news is that the package can be run. The bad news is that installation is a hassle, the readme doesn't help, and the LCL demo catalog scares users. And this is happening under model conditions on Windows 10x64 with the latest version of the environment 2.2.4.
1 Trying to install according to the instructions results in an error when installing at the LCLTMSFNCCorePkgDE level:
This can be bypassed by reinstalling the LCLTMSFNCCorePkg package. Then it will work correctly.
The analogous problem is with LCLTMSFFNCUIPackPkg. We act in the same way. When we get the LCLTMSFNCUIPackPkgDe error, we reinstall LCLTMSFNCUIPackPkg. It works.
This is not a Lazaurus error just incorrect code in De packages, as you can see, in the compiler messages. I leave it to the authors to clean up this mess. The thing about Lazaurus is that packages with De should automatically install without De (contrary to what it says in the installation instructions). When this doesn't happen, it's the author's fault, not the compiler's as someone from the Developers suggested on the forum. For me it remains a mystery why TMS does not check this before releasing a new version of the package. Really, verifying that a package installs in the current version of the IDE is not a big task. This is not freeware, gentlemen You are selling it....
- the Demo catalog of LCL is a Stable of Augias.
I do not have the strength to write about all the bugs, I recommend opening projects one by one - having only the UI Pack installed.
A few observations:
- Nice gentlemen, in LCL the value $FFFFFFFFFFFF is not correct for color. This needs to be manually corrected to the default color,
- It would be nice to remove references to packages that have changed their name (Calendar),
- The assumption that someone who has UI Pack also has WebCore is simply wrong (Kanban).
My advice to TMS. Get a clean install of Lazaurus on Win 10. And install ONLY this pack, and then try to open LCL Demo projects one by one. You have some work to do.
Overall I got discouraged for a while... But I'm not giving up I'll probably come back with more bugs.
But is there a chance that on the TMS side also look into it? I know that LCL users are a minority, but what I write about are rather basic things.
