Delphi 2009 and Rave 7.6 ...

D2009 is a whole new game - Unicode and a NEW binary format and there is no simple update for Rave 7.0x BEX available. With Rave 8 BEX is a version for D2009 beside the included  BE-version available (if it's released from Nevrona Designs). I know, a lot of the readers wait for Rave 8 ... at the moment is Rave 7.6 the show stopper ....

Delphi 2009 is CodeGear's first release of a Unicode enabled version of Delphi for Win32. That is a very major change for Delphi and it has been (still is) a challenge. The first release of Rave BE 7.6 (bundled edition) included with D2009 has a few problems that were not discovered during the beta process. One problem is that there are some files ( .RVC and RptChart) that inadvertently were missed and not included in the installation program, meaning you're not able to use rave scripting in this version. 

Another problem is that "some" users are having a problem selecting a printer. I recommend to insert a "simple printer driver" like a HP Laserjet 4 and the IDE should start now.

Nevrona has already submitted fixes and CodeGear QC is reviewing the fixes and I hope they will publish very soon an update when the QC process is completed.

All of this makes me soooo sad.

I can't figure out how a really seriously working IT company can stand with this not extisting customer communication and that try of an homepage. Why don't "they" (are they really more than one man working?) enagage some student to fix the web site? This should not be too difficult.

I'm really soooo sad hearing for months all of that problems - with quite no progress.

Regards!

I have some Problems with C++ Builder 2009 and Rave 7.6 under Windows Vista. Rave crashes when I print from the preview on printer HP Laserjet 5N.

I'm locking for another report generator.

It is annoying to work with so bad report engine.

Nevrona works at the moment on a 7.6.1 version for Delphi 2009 ...
This version should fix all the showstoppers!
