Various people have reported an error message regarding rtl240.bpl not being found when calling the stand alone version of GExperts Grep. I could never reproduce it but my recent insight on SaveLoadLibrary now also solved that one:

The stand alone version of GExperts Grep tries to load any GExperts dll, regardless which version. The idea being that I don’t have to maintain multiple versions of the executable just to load the dll which does all the work anyway. So it tries to load the dlls in descending order, starting with the latest Delphi 10.1 (Berlin) one (I added 10.2 yesterday). But since GExperts is an IDE expert and therefore needs to use the rtl and various other packages, it of course requires them even if it is being used stand alone. And if you for whatever reason have GExperts installed for a Delphi version which you don’t have installed (or for which the packages are not in the search path), it fails to load and the error dialog described in the linked article was displayed.

It no longer does, thanks to David Heffernan’s hint.

There is no new release yet, not sure when I will have one ready.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
