Problems building mixed Delphi 2007 / 2009 project

I have a project including both Delphi 2007 and Delphi 2009 steps.

The Delphi 2009 step builds fine.

The problem is the Delphi 2007 step -- MsBuild reports 2 errors. After some experimenting, I found that the command line created by Visual Build Pro refers to the wrong folder for rsvars.bat:

cmd /c "@echo off&"C:\Program Files (x86)\CodeGear\RAD Studio\6.0\Bin\rsvars.bat"&C:\Windows\Microsoft.NE T\Framework\v2.0.50727\MSBuild.exe C:\Temp\Project1.dproj /p:Configuration=Release||exit -1"

The correct statement should be:
cmd /c "@echo off&"C:\Program Files (x86)\CodeGear\RAD Studio\5.0\Bin\rsvars.bat"&C:\Windows\Microsoft.NE T\Framework\v2.0.50727\MSBuild.exe C:\Temp\Project1.dproj /p:Configuration=Release||exit -1"

Is there a way to force Visual Build Pro to use the correct rsvars.bat?

Thanks, Trond

The Make Delphi action determines that path by finding the highest version key in the registry under

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CodeGear\BDS

(for D2009, it's 6.0) and reading the RootDir value from that key. You could temporarily update this registry value to point to D2007 before building D2007 projects, then change it back to the D2009 path afterwards.

Thank you for the suggestion.

I checked a couple of PCs, and found the keys for Delphi 2007 and 2009 under:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Borland\BDS\5.0

and

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\CodeGear\BDS\6.0

(I guess it depends on the choices made during installation whether these keys are located under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE or HKEY_CURRENT_USER.)

So changing
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\CodeGear\BDS\6.0\RootDi r
to temporarily point to the Delphi 2007 folder should do the trick?


Anyway, I tried another (possibly less elegant) solution while experimenting with this:

1) Setting the "Don't build the project(s), but update any other properties that are chosen" to ON

2) Adding a Run Program step with the modified cmd statement

This works partly ok. -- The version info doesn't get updated when I uncheck the "Don't build the project(s), but update any other properties that are chosen".

Regards,
Trond

The Make Delphi action looks only under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, not HKEY_CURRENT_USER.

Another option would be to check 'Do not run rsvars.bat before MSBuild' on the Options tab and specify the appropriate rsvars.bat command in the 'Command to run before main command' field on the Advanced tab.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I tried the follwing settings:

Override the default location of the command-line compiler executable:
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\MSBu ild.exe

Do not run rsvars.bat befor MSBuild:
Checked

Command to run before main command:
C:\Program Files (x86)\CodeGear\RAD Studio\5.0\Bin\rsvars.bat

...but the resulting command line fails:
cmd /c C:\Program Files (x86)\CodeGear\RAD Studio\5.0\Bin\rsvars.bat&"C:\Program Files (x86)\CodeGear\RAD Studio\6.0\Bin\brcc32.exe" Test2007.vrc -foC:\Temp\VisualBuildPro\Test2007.vres

... and actually looks quite different from what I expected:
cmd /c "@echo off&"C:\Program Files (x86)\CodeGear\RAD Studio\5.0\Bin\rsvars.bat"&C:\Windows\Microsoft.NE T\Framework\v2.0.50727\MSBuild.exe C:\Temp\Project1.dproj /p:Configuration=Release||exit -1"

Further to the location of the registry keys:

I just checked and older PC running Windows XP with Delphi 2007 installed, and found the keys under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE as you describe it.

On my two Vista 64 PCs there is no HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\CodeGear section.

Trond

If version/property changes are specified, the Make Delphi action first updates the project .res file (using brcc32.exe) before building.
http://www.kinook.com/VisBuildPro/Ma...lphiaction.htm

Try putting double quotes around the .bat filename:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\CodeGear\RAD Studio\5.0\Bin\rsvars.bat"

If that doesn't help, please provide the error information. Thanks.

Adding the quotes still fails. See error messages below:

Looks like two double quotes are needed at the beginning.

""C:\Program Files (x86)\CodeGear\RAD Studio\5.0\Bin\rsvars.bat"

No, that still doesn't do it:

Strange, it works ok here. You may need to use the other workaround for now (create/update registry value). We'll also consider adding an option to specify the rsvars.bat location, which overrides the default.

Ok. The other solution works just great so I'm fine for now. Adding a custom override for the rsvars.bat location, sounds like a good idea.

Thanks a lot,
Trond
