Latest post of the previous page:

pepak, this well established version fail miserably on my computers, where every other IDEs in the world run happily.
But nevermind, lets it be this way. :)
I would ask also, this. Lets i have community version installed, lets imagine it is usable.
But it shows me there is 366 days remainded, 365 days reminded, and so on, up to the end of the trial (?) period, i suppose.
But, why trial? isnt it supposed to be free community edition ?
the trial period can be prolongated without extra headaches?
Probably i can uninstall it and reinstall again to start again the trial period?

BTW, and related or not, but Lazarus indeed claimed to be free open source Delphi clone.
There is a disclaimer about "is not 100% compatible", but the "differences" all about are, for example,
like renaming files from ".Dfm" ("delphi form") to ".Lfm" ("lazarus form")

I think i am too much archeologist with the stuff.
But, i think, knowing to do things with pascal in FAR,
can be huge help to FAR project and people using FAR.
Pascal is still "oficially" supported plugin language/platform (?)
There are Dot.Net, and Python adapters,
but i tend to think Pascal still have better FAR plugin API coverage (?)
and there are numerous useful plugins form the past.
and Pascal is still not that awful terrifying (for most normal people) C++
But. Here comes totally broken, 1,500$ (single user license) Delphi.
And you have to investigate alternatives and migration stuff.
And it became unpractial time waste again, for dead technology,
which current owner's dream is to get rid of.
Well done, Idera.
Idera is well known for purchasing orphaned projects,
forcing remaining consumers to pay maximum them can afford (during migration period),
and throw it away, since there is no consumers anymore.

a bit about Delphi pricing
https://www.componentsource.com/product ... nal/prices
Interesting, is it life time including upgrades price, or one-year only license?
Interesting. were it working, at least as any other normal IDEs do,
i would believe "decades of succesful IDE building" may worth the license of 1500$ per year.

HaRT probably you right.
but i just pointed out the cause of problems with Embarcadero Delphi :Yahoo!:
tha is to say, come to the exact solution, interesting issue with it.
but now i really do not know how to say the solution, without being permanently banned ? :(
Can it be not permanently? let's say, for a month or something like .. ?
I just want to help people use FAR and Delphi together .. :cry:
