Steve J created a new topic ' Invalid UDID for new iOS devices' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

Hi,
the new iPhones XS & XSMax don't have a standard 40 character UDID anymore.
Therefore, Tokyo can't compile and deploy apps to those devices even if you have a valid provisioning profile for those devices.
Also iTunes does not provide the UDID anymore for those new devices.
The new UDID format for those is like nnnnnnnn-000NNNNNNNNNNNNN
Then the compiler complains and stops deployment.
Anyone found a workaround?
Thanks
Steve

Steve J replied to the topic 'Delphi Certificate Error ?' in the forum. 1 month ago

As Remy said,
Embarcadero is working on it.
Marco Cantu also tweeted about it Invalid consumer key/secret in configuration

If you see a "security warnings" in Delphi IDE don't worry. The @EmbarcaderoTech domain SSL certificate expired, was renewed, but not applied to all web properties. Some sites (GetIt and Quality) are affected. Fix coming, apologize. BTRW, we are updating Community and EDN portals

Steve J replied to the topic 'Can 10.2.3 work with XCode 10?' in the forum. 1 month ago

Nope, unfortunately not yet.
It's on the roadmap for 10.3 but no release date has been confirmed.
You have to stick or switch back to Xcode 9 for now.

I too totally disagree. Yes there are free alternative, but did you really try Xamarin? To me it's a no go. RadStudio offers a real one place, one code, one click compile/deploy. Lazarus is fine for Linux if you don't have RadStudio Enterprise. But t

I think that Delphi Academy can provide certificates. Check

And they currently have a batch of free courses covering the Pascal Language

You probably can count on several weeks before getting a patch allowing to use Xcode 10...
That's always a major problem.

Steve J replied to the topic 'Android SDK and NDK - file locations and SDK Manager' in the forum. 2 months ago

Me neither. Never use web based. That's why I call standalone apps "real apps" and "web portals" (not apps) for anything that doesn't work without an internet connection :-)

Anyway, the Settings migration tool never worked for me. Always screwed everything no matter the install, the version, etc... I now use the DITE Them Editor to make sure I get my settings right.

Steve J replied to the topic 'Android SDK and NDK - file locations and SDK Manager' in the forum. 2 months ago

If the SDK/NDK were actually really installed during RadStudio installation, you should have a folder in your Start menu named "Android SDKs" Inside you should have "Android AVD Manager" and another one "Android Tools".
Hover on them and you should have a tooltip with the full path (or right click and select Properties to get the path).
In my case they're in "C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\19.0\PlatformSDKs\android-sdk-windows"
"C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\19.0\PlatformSDKs\android-ndk-r9c"

BUT: while using the .ISO to install RadStudio I never had it install the NDK/SDK even when checked. I recently had a mystery bug installing some TMS tools and I decided to just fully uninstall RadStudio, remove the entire BDS 19 registry branch, and delete all related RadStudio folders in my PC.
Rebooted, and reinstalled from the .ISO. For the first time it installed the SDK/NDK for me...
I've been told that one can upgrade on top of each version (10.1 to 10.2 to 10.3 etc...) but it's unclear to me whether it works or not.

Steve J replied to the topic 'Reading ios emails?' in the forum. 3 months ago

I'd be interested too.
IMAP means that you're online. I would need offline access. Either access what is store in the mail app of the device, or at least being able to drag emails and then drop them into the app.

Steve J replied to the topic 'Installation of Delphi Tokyo erased my XE7 installation' in the forum. 3 months ago

Just a naive question, did you install in a separate directory?
I have C++Builder 6, RadStudio Delphi/C++Builder 2010, RadStudio XE6 and RadStudio XE Tokyo in 4 separate directories, they each work independently without a hitch.
Even the registry entries are independent, therefore not mixing installed 3rd party components.
Those latter need to be installed independently for each environment though.
I have TMS and Raise installed for C++Builder 6 in my CBuilder\AddOns directory, then for 2010 in my Rad2010\AddOns directory, then in my RadXE6\components directory and in my RadStudioXE\AddOns directory...
They all work flawlessly.

Sounds all good. But macOS 64 bit should be released by October for Mojave, and iOS12 as well. Not in 2019. And one missing thing that is crucial for iOS / Mac developers: AppleWatch. Apple puts those apps with AppleWatch support higher in their list

Wow, seems you went the whole length there, but thanks for sharing. Currently didn't try the PlayStore yet, but it's valuable information when the day comes.
I'm happy that you were able to solve the problem.

Try to install the android-ndk-r13 instead.
I use the SDK API 26 and it works. Would the NKD 13 be a rejection from the Android Store?

Steve J replied to the topic 'community version compiled program got time limits for using?' in the forum. 4 months ago

It should be Delphi that is limited to 365 days, not your produced application.
The CE Delphi states that after 1 year, you need to renew (for free), your license.
I don't think that the apps you write with Delphi will stop working.

Steve J replied to the topic 'Forums unusable' in the forum. 4 months ago

It’s true that imbecile spammers were hacking the Community section. They hire people to create accounts, log and spam.
The newsgroups via NNTP were almost not spammed, except the Android ones, and a few idiots selling free TV-shows. But mainly it was invaluable.
Also NNTP access is, to me, an absolute must have. 3rd party apps let you store, organize the posts you want to archive, etc. and access the data offline, unlike web-based portals.
You can’t access them in a plane using Forte Agent or other newsgroup readers.
That’s too bad.
