What about suport BDE engine, ADO, MSSQL 2005 server.
Do yuo have any bady whit expiriency. Test it. Is thera are problem.

When compiling on this os, is have a problem to start to standart windows XP. And both os - XP, ReactOS.

Try freepascal or get reactos to lie. I cannot remember how.

If we made to run Delphi 7 on this operation system, many software will build on ReactOS

ReactOS can build many software already asm, C, C++ with gcc
in the os itself. At moment we are more focuse getting a stable kernel
and better compatible. We can not do much more until that is solv and fixing. Alex is working very hard getting a better kernel

I did not say it for a joke. Most VCL stuff converts to LCL code.

And if that is not good enough CLX from Delphi can be part build with freepascal providing the vcl classes without the limitations.

With work Delphi 7 will not be required at all.

Freepascal VCL is split in two parts. LCL and FCL. One is graphics one is low level. There are ways around problem.

Hi.

I'm a bit disoriented here (new). I understand D7 doesn't work with ROS, did anyone try D5? It's less demanding and frankly who needs native database support, there are open source engines/helpers out there. It's just that having the IDE in the OS really helps development, more so that compiling and copying.

So I'm asking, basically, does D7 fail with ROS because of the installation? Or the components? The VCL? The Personal (or was it Enterprise) editions come with most of the sources so I guess they can be slightly altered to fit the OS while still in development. And Setup isn't really the problem, anyone can ... help the IDE in with no setup. Components can be recompiled. Does anyone know where the problem is?

I did check out Lazarus but it seems like swapping open source for ... open source - it's odd. True, D5E is not open source, it just has most of the sources with it.

ROS doesn't support it because we're missing god knows how many implementations. None of the developers even runs ROS as a production system. File downloading from Firefox doesn't work, ibrowser has issues, etc. It's basically just because ROS isn't complete enough to run certain apps. All development is done on other systems, simply because ROS isn't stable enough to do a lot of things in it for very long.

I see, thanks for the reply.

Well then, I guess I'm stuck to Windows compiling. Sorry I can't help with actual OS development but I'll have a whack at application porting.

Hi everyone

I'm a Delphi coder, and is interested in ROS as well

I understand that installing delphi and working in IDE can be only dreamed so far. But I can develop applications in Windows and then test it on ROS

Any ideas about it?

It depends on what would those apps need in terms of windows api/hardware.

I didn't find the time to actually insert a running VM in my schedule (already quadruple-booting), but I'd go like this:

Build an empty, button application with a ShowMessage. Run that over ROS, my bet is it works just fine. Then start developing, eyes on MSDN PSDK (Platform Software Development Kit). Mind requirements and only use well-established APIs, test on Win32 first then port. If it breaks in transit, try a workaround. Most things can be done in code, circumventing the APIs, not that it's a good idea but at this stage I feel it's a better move to write code out and contribute to application base rather then wait all features out.

It's possible, too, that base applications bork when ported, in which care *some* support might be required.

You can use -hdb fat:directory QEMU option.
