Subject RE: [IBO] IBO and BCB4 - Install Problems

Hi Lester,

Not too sure I follow .......

>> You don't need the b and c, they are all contained in d.
OK, no worries - I assumed that I had to start with the full release then
add on top.

>> Your new folder will cause problems with the 'packaged'

I don't do packages a lot, at all, so I'm not sure what you mean here.

I have problems when inter is used - I get errors on the build of VRT with
14 'cannot find *.obj' messages. DOing away with the inter and putting the
obj files into the source folder makes this problem go away.

I did that in one attempt - same problems as mentioned in Eric's email. The
VDT package wouldn't install beciuse of unit clashes with ib_process in CRT
and VRT, when it tried to load TRT. As far as the build process is
concerned, it does 'just work'. In the past I have always used the
individual build.

I see, I knew that there was/is a bug where the various paths get changed
from something we type to something totally random that the IDE thinks we
should be using. I believe that if you specify a full UNC path, it will not
be changed. Of course, it should really use relative paths :o)

And then I go and take it all out - sorry !

I shall have to bow to your superior knowlege on the matters of packages
etc, but at least I now have a working installation. I just tested it on the
HELP.GDB database supplied with the new Firebird RC1.
