    Hi Craig.
    Thanks for posting this – XE8 is of limited use for much of what we do without ADS.
    I’m having trouble however – I had to prefix most of the uses clauses with ‘vcl.’ – am I missing something? now it falls over at the lack of dbtables (?bde.tables).
    Thanks for any pointers

    • That’s my bad.
      You need to have BDE installed, which you can download from your EDN account.
      I’d originally included this in the instructions, but it went missing at some point?
      As for the vcl prefix, try adding vcl to the package requires.
      I’ll make the changes and upload.

    • Hi Hugo,

      The link is for a subversion repository, which is why it won’t open in a regular browser.
      You can open it using RadStudio…

      1) “File -> Open From Version Control”
      2) Select “Subversion” from the dialog.
      3) Put the URL into the “URL of Repository” field.
      4) Put your chosen download directory into the “Destination” field.
      5) When the download is complete, select the “….\Ads11_10_XE8.dproj” file.

      Alternatively, you could download another subversion client such as TortoiseSVN (google is your friend here).
      Please let me know how you get on 🙂
