RAD Studio 11.1 Patch 1 from April 27, 2022


This patch addresses some issues in RAD Studio 11.1, including with Delphi compiler, debugging on macOS and iOS, C++ code completion with the classic compiler, and additional areas listed below.

Installing this patch is recommended for all RAD Studio 11.1 customers. This patch is about 400MB to download.

Installation via GetIt

If you download the patch via GetIt, it is installed automatically, creating a backup of the files replaced. However, the new version of PAServer for macOS needs to be manually installed on your Mac. The new version is copied into the PAserver folder (by default, a folder like C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\22.0\PAServer), and you need to copy it over to a Mac and install it manually there. See also the additional steps for Python configuration below.

Manual Download and Installation

This patch is also available in the download portal at my.embarcadero.com. In this case, after downloading and expanding the ZIP file, you should run the patch.R111.patch1_install.bat file or manually expand the R111.patch1.zip into the respective subfolders of the RAD Studio installation folder. Either way you’d still need to copy and install the updated PAServer for macOS on your Mac and follow the additional steps for Python configuration below.

Additional Steps for Python Configuration on macOS

PAServer for macOS requires the use of Python 2.7. If you do not have Python 2.7 installed, here are the recommended steps:

1. Download Python 2.7 from the link below and install it
https://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.7.18/python-2.7.18-macosx10.9.pkg

2. Update the PAServer Python to use the Python 2.7 installed in step 1
- cd /Applications/PAServer-22.0.app/Contents/MacOS/lldb-x86_64/lib/python2.7
- sudo mv Python Python.orig
- sudo ln -s /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/Python Python

Uninstallation steps

1 Close RAD Studio
2a For a GetIt installation, open the Catalog Repository installation folder and move to the patch folder
2b For a manual installation, open the fodler with the installation files
3 Run the patch.R111.patch1_uninstall.bat file
4 Uninstall the package from GetIt
