Delphi Beta

NDA Reminder!!!

IntraWeb 17 is still under NDA. No binary or other sources can be shared. You can talk and show 17, but see below at end of instructions.

Beta Requirements

  • Delphi 10.2.3
    In the future more will be supported. To simplify the beta build process we are building the beta release for 10.2.3 only.
    If you do not have 10.2.3, you can use the new Delphi Community Edition.
  • x86 Only
    x64 will be supported in the future.
  • C++ still to come
    C++ is not supported in the beta yet, but there are no obstacles and if you want you should be able to use it although you will have to copy and modify the Delphi demo project files.

By limiting the beta to these restrictions, we can build for a single target which makes the beta process significantly simpler.

Instructions

  1. Install latest IntraWeb 15 build
    15 and 17 do not conflict. 17 will not affect your other 15 project or 15 itself. 17 is completely additive to 15.
  2. Delete old files
    To prevent left over files, delete this directory if it exists:
    C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\19.0\Bpl\IWGen\
  3. Copy designer bins
    Copy bin\*.* (including sub directories, as is) to:
    C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\19.0\Bpl\
  4. Install design package
    Install this package into the IDE:
    C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\19.0\Bpl\dclIntraWeb17_D10_2.bpl
  5. Add DCU path
    This is for the runtime DCUs or .pas files. To your global Delphi path or to each IW17 project add the paths to your DCU search path. Do NOT add both into the path as they can cause conflicts.

    • If you have SVN access: source\Delphi\Package
    • If you do NOT have SVN access: dcu dir from the .zip file.

Next Steps
