DCM: The system cannot find the file specified - FIX

A big thanks to Mark Elder for bringing this to my attention.

If you create a configuration based on the Win32 base config, you may get an error on startup that says the following:

The system cannot find the file specified, ClassID {A960a625-2a7a-455c-89f3-3c4b0796980c}

There are two ways that this problem can be solved:

  1. load up the configuration and uncheck the $(BDS)\Bin\DataExplorer90.bpl. The problem with this is that you no longer get access to the Data Explorer.
  2. load up the configuration and check the $(BDS)\Bin\dotnetcoreide90.bpl. The problem with this is that you now are using .NET and startup is a little slower.

Which way would you like the base configuration to work? I am favouring solution number 1 at the moment. Let me know which one you think most appropriate.

Great Utility! It is nice to be able to load Delphi 2K5 as quickly (actually more quickly) than Delphi 7. One problem though; on "non-standard" displays (mine's 1920x1200) the buttons and check boxes don't appear on the botton of the dialogs.

I also run with that resolution. You must be using large fonts.

I will look into this for the next release. Is it all dialogs or just particular ones?

FWIW, I too am using large fonts and I see the same problems with buttons out of place and a user interface that remind me of Linux (puke). This is not JEDs fault though. This happens even when JEDs utility is not installed.
