Learn how to setup a Subversion Server and include it in your Delphi development process. In a 2007 report by Forrester Research, Subversion was recognized as the sole leader in the Standalone Software Configuration Management (SCM) category and a strong performer in the Software Configuration and Change Management (SCCM) category. All steps (install and use) are shown live.
Often when you build an install with your favorite setup tool, it is a chore to integrate with your build system. #Install allows you to do so with Delphi Prism or any .NET language. Even if depending on the build parameters to make radical changes to the install, #Install allows you to specify precisely those differences and build the specific MSI file. If you have a MSI file built by someone else, you can de-compile it into code to enhance understanding of its internals, make changes, then rebuild.
One of Delphi's more powerful capabilities, and least used, is it's flexible open tools application programming interface (API). In this in-depth presentation, Delphi expert Cary Jensen demonstrates you can use the open tools API to add your own key combinations to Delphi's editor. He concludes the presentation by showing you how to create and install a design-time package that will add your new keystrokes to any Delphi installation.
