madExcept Settings not appearing in Delphi Project menu

Postby Tim » Mon Aug 28, 2017 2:01 pm

Hello,

I'm having trouble getting madExcept 4.0.18 to work with Delphi 10.2 Tokyo on my main Windows 10 PC.

I have successfully installed it on a Windows 8 VM, and an entry "madExcept Settings" appears in the Project menu (see attachment ProjectMenu_VM.png). But when i install it on my local PC, no such entry appears (see attachment ProjectMenu_Local.png). Also, i noticed that Windows "Apps and Settings" shows madCollection as "Unavailable", although i think that may only refer to the version number (see attachment Unavailable.png).

Any ideas what might be going wrong here? i did try a clean reinstall following these steps, but unfortunately it didn't make any difference.

Many thanks,
Tim

Probably Delphi stored the BPL at some point in its internal "Disabled Packages" or "DisabledPackages" registry key. Please search the registry for that and if you find any mad* packages in there, just delete them. Afterwards start Delphi and check the list of installed packages. If any mad* packages are not checked, manually check them.

Sorry, i just realised i hadn't actually been selecting the "madExcept 4" option when running the installation program. That might explain why it wasn't getting installed! It's all working now. Profuse apologies!
