Abstract: Help Updates for RAD Studio 2007 Release Notes and Installation Guide
RAD Studio 2007 Help Updates provide bug fixes and other improvements to the Help system.
See http://dn.codegear.com/article/37542/ for updates to these release notes.
Visit CodeGear CodeCentral for versions of the RAD Studio Help in CHM and PDF formats.
Installing this update uninstalls the current help and then installs and registers the newest Help Update.
This Help Update can be applied to:
Important: This Help Update cannot be applied to prior software versions. You must update RAD Studio to one of the versions listed above to be able to use the Help Update mechanism.
You can obtain the help update download from the Registered Users Site. Install Help Updates using this command:
The MSI-based Delphi installer uses a transactional database to keep track of its actions. This feature enables you to cancel and "rollback" the installation process, which means you can backtrack the install actions performed up to that point.
You can disable the rollback support by setting the following entry:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer]"DisableRollback"=dword:00000001
You can also use the same setting under HKCU, which will be applied in a per-user basis.
Notice that this setting will affect *all* MSI-based installs, not only the help install.
Turn the registry setting back after you are done. Either delete the registry entry or set the value to 0.
DisableAutomaticApplicationShutdown (Vista Only)
This registry entry setting disables the Restart Manager, which tracks files in use during an install process. (On Vista-based install, this can cause long delays.)
For the following registry entry:
Set a DWORD value named DisableAutomaticApplicationShutdown to 1.
