HowTo / Notes

Installation How-to

This is meant as an installation how-to for the "newer" Delphi Versions (after Delphi 7).

Prerequesites:

The .NET Framework 3.5 must be installed using winetricks before the Delphi Installer:

winetricks dotnet35sp1

Since there are currently (as of WINE 1.7.47) issues with the .NET framework on win64, please set WINEARCH to win32 when creating the WINE prefix!

Since the Installer will have issues with "corrupt" (must be a bug in the check process somewhere) 7zip archives an internet connection is required during the installation.

I would suggest you to unpack the iso-image of the Delphi version you're installing and set the files to 644 in order to allow the installer to overwrite it's 7zip files.

The next problem arises when the installer tries to install the J# 2.0 runtime where it hangs during the "ngen.exe" process. I had to kill the ngen.exe process about a dozen times before the installer went on.

There may be some additional errors or warnings during installation, but they can be ignored as far as I know at the moment. (i.e. FastReport can't create a start menu shortcut and H2Reg.exe has issues as well)

It's best to unselect the help during installation or you have to kill the HReg.exe process (I didn't wait for it, since it seems to be hung).

The IDE may deadlock when it is trying to show the welcome page, this is due to a bug in WINE mshtml. This can be worked around by opening any existing file with:

wine bds.exe SomeFile.pas
