This week we were in the early stages of rolling out what was to be “RAD Studio Update 2” with a large number of bug fixes. We put the update out on the web and the registered users page, and posted an article on the Embarcadero Developer Network. We were excited, because there are a lot of bug fixes in it, making an already solid product even more solid.
However, once a few people started installing it, they noticed that they were being asked to register every time RAD Studio was run. The product is properly registered, but the dialog box still pops up every time you run RAD Studio.
So, first, if this is happening to you, we’re sorry. You can simply click cancel whenever you see that dialog and be on your merry way with the benefit of the fixes for Update 2. Your product should be properly registered, regardless of what the dialog may tell you.
Second, we have recognized the issue and pulled the Update from distribution. We want you to have the best experience, obviously, so the continued distribution of the Update clearly isn’t in anyone’s interest. We don’t want folks to run into the problem – again, obviously.
Third, we are working on a fix that will cover everyone. If you’ve installed Update 2 and are running in to the issue above, then we’ll have a fix for you. If you haven’t installed Update 2 yet, we apologize for the delay, and we’ll have an update for you that doesn’t have this issue. I can’t say when we’ll have it, but obviously we want it to be as soon as possible. We want you to have this Update in your hands as much as you do.
Finally, we’re sorry for the hassle, and we’ll get this fixed as soon as possible.
