Managing Multiple Versions

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The TDataSet Switch utility makes every effort to swap all aspects of your development environment from one version of the TDataSet Descendant to another. As a result, the utility will change both the TDataSet Descendant as well as the version of ACE that will be used by the IDE. To perform a switch, simply provide the following information:

1.Version of Delphi/C++ Builder for which you wish to change the TDataSet Descendant. Only the IDEs that are installed on the PC will be displayed in the drop-down.


2.The version of the TDataSet Descendant you want to switch to. Only the installed versions of the TDataSet Descendant that are successfully detected will appear in the drop-down list. To use a version that does not appear, see Custom TDataSet Versions.


3.Backup Options. If you do not wish to have your existing BPL files backed-up, un-check the "Back Up" check-box. It is highly recommended that you keep the check-box checked. Otherwise, select the "Current" TDataSet version in the appropriate drop-down. The utility will attempt to detect your current TDataSet Descendant version. If successful, it will be pre-selected for you. For more information on what is backed-up, see Backup Functionality.
