What decides where GetIt places the stuff it installs?
It seems that the files are placed under current user, even if Delphi is installed for “all users”. How do you get around that for a build server where the build process is running under a system account? This is kinda ridiculous.
Quote from Vincent Parrett: “Umm.. don’t use getit.. its a toy not a real package manager. Seriously why tf would it place libraries under the user profile.”
I have to agree. GetIt appears like a really trivial download/installer, than an actual package installer.
I guess it would be better to install the libs locally, then copy them to VCS managed folders, and check out those on the build server.

GetIt, FinalBuilder and Continua Build Server
We are having some issues with the OmniThreadLibrary not being found when FinalBuilder is invoked from Continua.
My colleague was just doing the normal edit, F9, break, edit, F9, etc – when this happened. The compiler went runaway and found a lot of errors! In fact, it didn’t run out of errors – but kept finding them until
he killed #10Seattle .
After a restart and a F9 – no errors and ran as expected.
Naturally, it is impossible to reproduce on demand.
Cosmic ray bit flipping? Random data in uninitialized buffers? Aliens?
I disputed the most recent of these issues with the following comment: “Works as expected? Are you kidding me? That navigation bar is a mouse centric waste of space and there needs to be a setting to remove it! “
Yeah – because I ran out of PC politeness … although I did remove one word from the initial draft – that word was “useless”.
Nav bar: Two drop down button menus, and two combo boxes and a search button – all operable by mouse only – because that is how a coder works… with a mouse… and not keyboard short cuts… …sheesh…

There are some entries in Quality Portal about enabling/disabling the Code Navigation toolbar:
Comment from internal system: Yes in XE8 the Editor Navigator Toolbar should be visible or hidden, but it has been changed. It works as expected now in Seatle 10. It will work in this way in the next versions
English is not my native language, so perhaps I don’t understand that comment. In XE8 there was a working option to enable or disable that toolbar; that option was removed in D10, and it will not come back with an update?
Even Embarcadero stuff has problems with the product name “Seattle”. See quote above.
Did anybody else see any problems with the registration of their RAD Studio or Delphi installation?
I just discovered that it has registered my installation to a different email address than my EMBT registered one. It seems it has used my MS Outlook email address, which is the one that my Windows installation is linked with.
Does any of you see a “wrong” email address on Help|About?
