If you get the error “PrivateGXMenuActionManager is not nil upon creation” when starting your IDE, check the entries under

HKCU\Software\Embarcadero\BDS\<version>\Expert

There are most likely two entries for GExperts. Remove one and the error should go away.

These entries come from

  1. The installer (GExperts=”path\to\dll”), because it always uses GExperts as the name for the entry.
  2. The Expert Manager (GExpertsXxx=”path\to\dll”), because it uses the name of the dll file for the entry.

Yes, this is a bug. And it has been fixed on 2019-03-02.
