Sometimes there is need to install EurekaLog manually. You may need manual installation to use EurekaLog on build server without running EurekaLog installer. Or you may use manual installation to troubleshoot installation problems. If you're reading this article to solve installation issues - please read this article first.

 

This article will use the following notation:

%EUREKALOG% - installation folder of EurekaLog. For example: C:\Program Files (x86)\Neos Eureka S.r.l\EurekaLog 7\

%IDE% - installation folder of your IDE. For example: C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\15.0\

 

IDE Expert

1. Determinate name and integer version of your IDE by using this table. For example: Studio16 for name and 16 for integer version. This article will use %IDENAME% to mark name of your IDE and %VER% for integer version determinated on this step.
2. Check if you have %EUREKALOG%\Packages\%IDENAME%\ folder. If yes - skip to step 3. If no - run EurekaLog installer with /Force_D%VER% and/or /Force_C%VER% command-line switches.
3. Copy EurekaLogCore%VER%0.bpl, .dbg, .jdbg files from %EUREKALOG%\Packages\%IDENAME%\ folder to 32-bit Windows\System32 folder. It is a run-time package (EurekaLogCore). This file will be used by IDE in steps 7 and 9 below.
4. Run your IDE.
5. Go to Components/Install packages menu item of your IDE.
6. Find any EurekaLog packages in the list. Remove them (if present).
7. Click on "Add" button and pick up %EUREKALOG%\Packages\%IDENAME%\EurekaLogExpert%VER%0.bpl file.
8. Make sure that "EurekaLog IDE Expert" appears in package list and it has checkbox checked.
9. Click on "Add" button and pick up %EUREKALOG%\Packages\%IDENAME%\EurekaLogComponent%VER%0.bpl file.
10. Make sure that "EurekaLog Component" appears in package list and it has checkbox checked.
11. Close Packages dialog.
