Compile fail for XE6

Post by jed » Tue May 13, 2014 11:52 pm

Trying to build the new version for XE6 I get this error:

I downloaded the source and ran TeeCompile

How do I get TeeRecompile to compile in the changed unit? It is overwriting the file each time I fix it?

What is the procedure for applying changes to the source code? Do I need to install manually?

From your second message I understand you modified the sources, do you get this error without modifying the sources?

You should modify the sources in the \Sources folder, not in \Sources\VCL or \Sources\FMX. The files in these two folders are regenerated by TeeRecompile from the files in the \Sources folder.

I didn't modify the sources until after it failed to install.

How can I be the only one with XE6 seeing this bug. It is very obvious in the source code why it fails.


I tried to modify the source code after I got no response.

Hi,

There is no FMXTee.Chart.pas file in the sources file. I am guess that the TeeRecompile generates this file from chart.pas?

I think it is misleading saying that full source is delivered when it must be preprocessed before it will install.

This is actually the issue I am attempting to address:

Report No: 124550 (RAID: 50945) Status: Open
[MacOS] Including FMX source when using TChart fails to build under OSX
http://qc.embarcadero.com/wc/qcmain.aspx?d=124550


This is using the TChart Lite or whatever came with Delphi XE6 and I bought the full source PRO version just to address this issue. Because there are about 100 bugs in FMX that need to be fixed with source patches for it to be usable.

I will make the change in the chart.pas unit see if teerecompile then works. At least this way I can distribute the fixed version of the source to my team for use.

thanks,
Jeremy

I fixed that issue and now I get this, investigating...

Well since that unit doesn't have a line 369, I cannot spend anymore time on this.

What is your suggestion for getting this working in XE6.

All I did was download the source version, extract it to my folder location and ran TeeCompile.

I will extract the source again into a different folder and see if something is different (between the two locations).

I have just downloaded the source setup again and the contents (once installed) is quite different to what was in my system.

I am a little concerned by this (I have kept all of the downloaded installers). Running the TeeRecompile now with my fingers and toes crossed :-)

Hello,

I'm sorry to hear you found troubles to install TeeChart SourceCode version. But I'm glad to hear you finally could do it!
Maybe it was a corrupt download or a previous beta version with some bug later corrected.
