By: John Kaster

Abstract: An update for Delphi 6 is now available for download from the registered users web site

Delphi 6 Runtime Library Update 2 is available to registered users of purchased versions of Delphi 6.

The size of this file is from 2.8MB to 2.9MB, depending on your language version. The patch is available for English, French, German, and Japanese language versions of Delphi 6. This update pack resolves run-time errors with certain variant operations on Windows 95/98/NT4 systems that have original (unpatched) versions of DCOM. It also resolves a possible deadlock issue.

Note! You must install Update 2 (available from the same location) in order to run the Delphi 6 Runtime Library Update 2.

BEFORE YOU INSTALL

This Update Pack includes all of the files that were 
included in the previous RTL Update Pack. However, it 
is highly recommended that you install the 
Delphi 6 Update 2 prior to installing this update.

=======================================================

ISSUES ADDRESSED IN THIS UPDATE PACK

This Update Pack resolves run-time errors with certain
variant operations on Windows 95/98/NT4 systems that have
original (unpatched) versions of DCOM.

This Update Pack also resolves a problem with Delphi 6 that
could produce deadlock. Typically, this would happen in a 
web application when many web modules were being created 
due to a heavy load. Once this occurred, the web application 
would stop responding to further requests and the CPU 
utilization would typically reach 100%. This update 
corrects the problem.

=======================================================
