PC/Delphi/Outlook setup for developing and testing adding

Hi there,

I am just trying to setup my PC to allow developing, testing/debugging adding on my newly setup PC.

I have Delphi XE4, Addin Express, various other components, Office 2013 x64 and an old addin.

I have previously compiled adding to Windows\System32 for debugging as this seemed to be the only way to have breakpoints work during debugging.

But with Windows 8 (and I think Windows 7) there are restrictions on saving files to locations such as /system32 and /syswow64 that make this difficult.

So my question is what is the best way to develop/debug applications in Outlook 2013, where should dll files be compiled to, what permissions changes or settings should be modified in windows etc. I guess a basic PC setup guide would be great to have the best experience while working with addin express.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards
Jason

Hello Jason,

You need to start Delphi via the Run as Administrator command and compile an add-in to the root folder of some drive e.g. D:\.
