JCL/JVCL and 10.1 Berlin Installation Issues
Has anyone else been having a nightmare installing the JCL/JVCL on 10.1 Berlin?
Personally, it's starting to get to the point where it just isn't worth the effort to use any of the JEDI stuff anymore.
I downloaded the JCL and JVCL master zip files from sourceforge.
I then ran the install.bat file for the JCL and encountered the JEDI.INC file missing error.
So I downloaded the jedi.inc master file and put it in the ..\jcl\source\include folder.
I re-ran the .bat file and now get a BCC32.exe not found error.
So I tried a different tack and opened the JclPackagesD240.groupproj manually and installed that.
That seemed to work fine ... seemed to ...
I then tried to run the jvcl install.bat file and it gives:
"No Delphi/BCB/BDS/RAD-Studio versions was found that has the required dependencies installed. Please install the dependencies first."
So obviously trying to install the jcl manually screws up anything going onwards with the jvcl.
Has anyone got any solutions or ideas to see how I can get out of this mess, especially since I've been round in circles for about 3 days now.
GitHub Files worked fine - thanks for updating them! (JCL 2.8 Testing Build 5677 / JVCL 3.50)
Just a note: You can get a free C++ Compiler (command line version) from Embaradero at embarcadero.com/de/free-tools/ccompiler! So before editing the Registry...
Just make sure that you add the path to the /bin folder with the compiler to your PATH (Windows).
After adding jedi.inc from GitHub into the ...jcl\jcl\source\include\jedi\ folder I could compile the JCL compiler and run it using the batch file. JVCL followed.
I downloaded jcl-188.8.131.5209.7z, tried to run the install.bat, and what I get is the following:
Using Embarcadero RAD Studio 10.1
This version of the product does not support command line compiling.
An error occured while compiling the installer. Installation aborted.
Press any key to continue . . .
::is it a normal behavior?
Phew. What a struggle?
I had the same errormessage but this time from the JCL installation.
"BCC32.exe not found error"
I don't have the Borland C compiler as the message implies - so why am i getting this error???
Here is a link that helped med. I had to delete a setting from registry. See this page:
After that no errormessage and successfull install :-)
Then I installed JVCL from
No everything is working :-)

Berlin 10.1 installers are available for both JVC and JVCL on codecentral.embarcadero.com Both installed in my system without a problem. They are in the Delphi / Binaries section.
Hope this helps
Found the fix for JVCL not installing when bat file run with error dcc32ex.exe not found.
You have to go and compile the dcc32ex.dproj project file located in
C:\Location Of JVCL\jvcl\jvcl\packages\bin with Delphi Berlin10.1.x
You will now have the dcc32ex.exe file in same directory as packages.
Once this is done the Batch file install.bat in /jvcl/jvcl will work.
Never had to do this in the past. Not sure if error or lack of instructions to do this when installing maybe cause they did not have latest Berlin when Jedi was built.
I am still working through setting up my Delphi Berlin 10.1.1 with bonus pack that I can not get keys for the Raise components or see Berlin downloads in MyUserRegisteredDownloads they were there on 30th Sept but disappeared on 1st Oct have opened a support ticket.
I'm with you Norbert, I'd really like to see such a complete tool set listed under GetIt.
I was convinced it was in GetIt, but just went and looked and it isn't :-( Are there plans to release a GetIt version? what would be involved?
I got the JCL to install after downloading JEDI.inc and putting it in the jcl\source\jedi\jedi.inc folder, but the JVCL installer won't compile.

Looking at line 29...
// secure against old versions of jedi.inc.
So, do I need to include the jedi.inc file in the JVCL folder as well? Where exactly?
I finally got it running. The file jedi.inc must be in the path
Then start install.bat as administrator. To avoid the "brcc32.exe not found" error uncheck all following checkboxes in the installation GUI:
"Add JCL to C++ include path"
"Copy HPP files to configured HPP directory"
'Check HPP files"
Now the JCL can be installed. After that installation of the JVCL is running fine also.
I downloaded the latest versions from Github but encountered still the same errors as Mike. Is there a Getit-package for JCL/JVCL and Berlin 10.1 on its way? I think it would be very welcome around the Delphi community. or is there an other way to get it installed?
