How to install tdbf in lazarus ide
« on: October 12, 2004, 09:18:49 pm »
Hi,

i tried to install the tdbf package in lazarus, but when I tried to recompile the ide i got an error message on line 97 in lazarus.pp (Access denied, AFAIK due to the fact that the lazarus was still open. So I tried to compile from commandline by using the make.exe using the following syntax: c:/lazarus/pp/bin/win32/make.exe --assume-new=lazarus.pp lazarus.exe

It compiled, but no tdbf visible anywhere in the IDE. Did I miss something or any help would be appreciated.

Lazarus version is 0.9.2 beta
FPC version 1.9

regards,

Erik

You are right this is caused by the fact that lazarus.exe is still running, while it is being rebuilt. This is not possible in win32, (in linux there is no such problem).

As a work around you can do one of the following:
1. rename your current lazarus.exe to laz.exe and install the component. It can now safely overwrite lazarus.exe.
  OR
2. run make ide OPT=@idemake.cfg from the command line after the linking failed.

A better solution is in the make.
