Now Getting Runtime Error 236 on Delphi Start

Post by majlumbo » Sun Jan 06, 2019 4:38 pm

I have v17.4.3 installed in Tokyo (I did not upgrade RV as yet), and have had no issue with it, until today (1/6). Upon starting Tokyo, I am getting runtime error 236 just after Richview components are loaded, and Delphi terminates. I removed all the RV related .bpl files from the bpl directory, and now Delphi starts with no problem.

Any idea what could be causing this issue.

There is no known critical errors in this version. Try removing all TRichView-related files and reinstall it again.

One thought... This error may be caused by packages dependent from TRichView which were not recompiled.
I.e. if you have some packages that requires TRichView packages, they must be uninstalled before installing TRichView, and recompiled after.

A similar problem may occur also for packages dependent from other third-party tools. For example, you installed TRichView including TRichView+DevExpress integration packages, and then updated DevExpress VCL. In this case, you need to re-run TRichView installer ("Install TRichView in IDE" shortcut in the Windows Start menu) to recompile packages dependent from DevExpress VCL
(in very new versions of DevExpress VCL, their installer automatically uninstalls third-party dependent packages; but in older versions, it was an issue)

I haven't made any changes at all since the last time I started Delphi 10.2.3 successfully. I went ahead and attempted to install TRichview manually, via the IDE, I successfully compiled the 10_2 package for both x32 and x64, then opened the design package, upon installing, I immediately got the runtime error 236 again, the Delphi crashed. Now on start, I again get it.

The actual error is:

Runtime error 236 at 302503B2

What version of TRichView do you use?

Again, the most probable reason of the error is a package mismatch.
The first thing to check: do you have other packages that use TRichView packages. If yes, these packages must be uninstalled or recompiled.
The second thing to check: did you modify/update other third-party components that have integration with TRichView (such as DevExpress VCL, or ReportBuilder, etc.). If yes, reinstall TRichView.
