Everybody and his brother – ahem – sister is blogging about the latest Update for Delphi 10.3 which has been announced two days ago. As always, Embarcadero’s servers are overloaded and have been down for hours. I have now started downloading the ISO and my browser is telling me it should be finished in 90 minutes. I’m not convinced yet…

The first feedback has been that GExperts seems to work with the new version but there is an access violation when exiting the IDE. I’ll give it a try once the download has finished and if I can actually install the new version.

edit: I’m impressed (not): Installing the update messed up my installation. The bds.exe is nowhere to be found. 🙁 Trying to un- and reinstall now.

edit2: Now it’s starting but tells me my update subscription has expired (I renewed it for a year back in May 2019.). Apparently something needs to be done with our license server. Don’t expect me to fix anything in GExperts for Delphi 10.3.2 until Monday. And then I will probably be too busy with work to do more than write an email to Embarcadero. Good thing I don’t need the latest and greatest Delphi version for work. I have a tight deadline already as it is. I don’t need the hassle of getting my primary tool to actually start on top of that.

Everybody else of course is welcome to get the GExperts sources and compile their own DLL to test. I’m interested in feedback about self compiled DLLs more than about the last release. If somebody can track down the AV and maybe even propose a fix that would be great.
