Delphi 2005 Fix Roll-up... Allen "Delphi Hero" Bauer

Author: Bob Swart
Posted: 9/14/2005 11:40:15 AM (GMT+1)

Allen Bauer, the Oracle at Delphi, is quickly becoming the personal Delphi Hero of many Delphi 2005 developers.

In his latest Delphi 2005 Fix Roll-up... and then some post, Allen has accumulated all this little (unofficial) fixes for Delphi 2005, and even added a new one (fix that is).

You can download a new update archive from his blog with the following contents:

  • 2005-08-05 09:10 155,648 boreditu.dll
  • 2005-09-13 12:57 764,928 Borland.Studio.Vcl.Design.dll
  • 2005-09-13 13:00 3,386,880 coreide90.bpl
  • 2005-09-13 12:43 271,740 coreide90.jdbg
  • 2005-09-13 13:00 754,176 designide90.bpl
  • 2005-09-13 12:43 68,160 designide90.jdbg
  • 2005-08-09 11:36 1,263,104 vclide90.bpl
  • 2005-08-09 11:54 110,392 vclide90.jdbg
Make sure Delphi 2005 is not running (and that Update #3 has been applied), and make a backup of these files in your BDS\3.0\Bin directory, before you copy the 8 new files in that place.

Before you start Delphi 2005 again, make sure to run:
  sn -Vr Borland.Studio.Vcl.Design.dll
which will add a verification entry for the assembly Borland.Studio.Vcl.Design.dll (as mentioned by Chee Wee Chua in his comment to Allen).

If - like me - you still get an error about one or more types in Borland.Studio.Vcl.Design.dll which could not be loaded, then you just have to copy the backup version of Borland.Studio.Vcl.Design.dll back into your BDS\3.0\Bin directory (you did make a backup, didn't you?).

With that last step, Delphi 2005 will run fine (more than fine actually).

Thanks for all your efforts Allen, it's truly appreciated!
To me, you are a true Delphi Hero!



Bob Swart05/09/14 20:10:12It appears I was not the only one with some problems using the new Borland.Studio.Vcl.Design.dll assembly, as Allen reported in his Fix for the Fix post. For now, I guess the safest thing is not to install the Borland.Studio.Vcl.Design.dll until Allen has fixed the assembly version stuff...
Levend05/09/15 00:51:22What exactly are the symptoms when Borland.Studio.Vcl.Design.dll does not work ... so far I did not notice any "anomalies" on my PC. Or is it just the load failure ?
Venkatesh VT05/09/15 03:22:45Initially I did get the error(since i did not run sn.exe).How ever once i ran sn.exe Delphi is working fine.If only Borland similarly pays attention to Delphi documentation,the Delphi 2005 experience will be really great
Bob Swart05/09/15 07:19:24Levend: as far as I know, it's only the load failure. In other words: if Delphi 2005 loads without errors, then the Borland.Studio.Vcl.Design.dll should be fine (unless it has been disabled, but that's easy to verify by starting a VCL project, of course - to use the VCL Designer ;-))
