ZGE with turbo explorer 2006

Post by kattle87 » Fri Feb 27, 2009 6:09 pm

I confirm the current ZGE editor code is compiled (and seems to work properly) with the Delphi Turbo Explorer 2006 (freeware from Borland site!) provided you comment this line out:

Code: Select all

Application.MainFormOnTaskbar := True;
I really do not understand what prevented it from working the last time I tried.
However this time I installed all the prerequisites exept for "explorer 6.0 SP1". Plus, I did not included anything related to the DataBase Engine. (I tried a "minimalistic" installation). Too bad that the Delphi products refuse to install under Wine: development is Windows-only :P But that's not a problem I think. ;)

Next week I will cope with my last exam. Expect something coming from me within a month :P (If I do manage to learn Object Pascal fast enough) xD

This works to including rev 152 and not at rev 159.

Haven't bothered to look any farther. :roll:

Edit - rev 153
then we run into DWORD_PTR

Yep, since December ZGE will only compile with Delphi 2010. It is too much work to keep it backwards compatible with older Delphi versions in my opinion. This applies to the ZGE Designer. The runtime engine will continue to compile with Freepascal and Delphi 2007, maybe earlier versions too. Hopefully there will be new free Turbo-versions of Delphi, because ideally you want free open source software to be developed with free tools.
