Auto transfer of existing packages with each new Laz install
« on: February 28, 2024, 09:56:40 pm »
Hello,
I have several packages that I keep installed in Lazarus. Is there a
way to retain and automatically install these packages when installing
a new version of Lazarus so I don't have to manually install them
every time that I upgrade?

Thank You

The new IDE should actually know the list of those packages. 

All you need to do is to go once to the menu: Tools > Build Lazarus with profile ....

And then when the IDE restarts they should be all there.

My experience with FpUp(deluxe) is very good on that matter, I do update like once every 2 week and never had issues (as long no problematic package conflicts are found, ie: if you can rebuild IDE without problems, than updating is no problem)

If rebuilding doesn't help, then you're probably using a different configuration directory (if you checked the "Secondary installation" checkbox during installation).

Then you can use the "Import" and "Export" buttons in the "Install/Uninstall Packages" window. They will allow you to save a list of installed packages in the old IDE, and restore them in the new one (or copy them to another IDE).

However, if I remember correctly, these buttons do not support the list from the "Online Package Manager".
