Delphi detection with JclIDETools fails on VirtualBox
Posted on 2013-05-21
I0m trying to improve my small creature replaceing my own Delphi installation detection routine with JclIDETools unit.
This is not a problem and the program works fine in my desktop, but I must test it on other machines and with different Delphi versions, so I installed VirtualBox in order to test my program and install different Delphi versions without affecting my PC..
Unfortunately, when I run my program within Virtualbox it detects Delphi installation using my own code but it fails using JclIDETools unit: the TreeView populated by my code displays correctly Delphi version(s) installed, the one populated by JclIDETools remains empty.
I'm doing many tests to get rid of this beacuse I think to need a better code than mine to detect Delphi but I would like test it without buy another computer or without partitioning my har disk and then reboot it everytime I need to do a test!
Hope someone has some idea about this!!! :(
Thanks to all for any advice.
