The plan I’m trying to follow is to create a new development VM (based on Win 10 and VS 2017), purely for .NET DA and / Hydra visual plugin work. An existing VM is based around Win 7, VS2012, Delphi XE2, Hydra 4, DA 8.
A couple of related questions :-
1). Should plugins created in VS2017, using the latest Hydra 6 be compatible with a Delphi XE2 host built using Hydra 4 ? Having tried this, I get the plugins loaded, but when the plugin form is in the process of being displayed, it totally closes down the host application after a pause of 20 seconds or so. Given I’m using two development machines, I’ve not had chance to dig into this to see if I can pin down where the failure is occurring. Given I’m using Hydra 4 on the Delphi host and 6 in the .NET plugin, I’m not surprised. Should I pursue this and expect it to work though ? Ideally I’d like to not touch the Delphi environment for now, but making use of Hydra 6 on the Delphi XE2 side seems like it would be necessary ?
2). Assuming I need to use Hydra 6 on the Delphi XE2 side, I’ve started exploring that route. After a successful installation of Hydra 6 (XML log below), I get the following package errors when loading XE2.
Can you advise on this ?
