DCM: Configuration not loading as you expected?

If you have just created your new configuration with Delphi Configuration Manager and when you start up from a generated Desktop Shortcut or from Delphi Configuration Manager itself then most likely you have created a configuration with a space in the name.

Unfortunately I don't check for a space in the name before generating the shortcut. There are two ways to address this issue:
  1. rename you configuration without a space in it.
  2. modify the desktop shortcut properties to read (path might be different depending on install location):
Config Name: DELPHI WIN32

"C:\Program Files\Borland\BDS\3.0\Bin\bds.exe" -r"DELPHI WIN32"
Note: Extra set of quotes around the -r string.

If you do use the second method to work around the problem, note that you will still not be able to launch this configuration from inside Delphi Configuration Manager.

The good news is that this is fixed in the next release of Delphi Configuration Manager, which goes into Beta testing tomorrow.
