This is a reference page about one of the tools required to install RAD Studio. For installation instructions, see Installation.

The Installer is the installation wizard that installs RAD Studio.

You can get the Installer from Embarcadero.

The Installer provides a minimal installation of RAD Studio. This minimal installation does not provide project support, it can only be used as a plain text editor. You must use the Feature Installer (which the Installer opens automatically) or the Feature Manager from your minimal installation of RAD Studio to install additional features.

Existing license found 103.png

Existing License Detected

If an existing license of the same version of the product is found on your system, you will see this screen in the install process. You can proceed with the installation using an existing license or enter a new license. Please note that this screen is shown only when an existing license is found on your system.

Enabling Installation Logs for Troubleshooting

Sometimes RAD Studio fails to install when using the GetIt Web Installer, throwing a non-conclusive error message. As a method to collect additional information on the potential causes to the installation failure, you can enable the creation of a GetItInstall.log file.

The installation logs are disabled by default, when enabled, the GetItInstall.log file can provide useful information for troubleshooting installation issues. To enable the installation logs, follow the steps below:

  1. After the failed attempt to install RAD Studio, open the RegEdit Windows tool and navigate to the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Embarcadero\BDS\xx.0\CatalogRepository\. Where xx.0 is the internal version of RAD Studio, like 22.0 for the Alexandria version.
  2. Add a DWORD (32-bit) Value with the name Debug and set 1 as the Value data.

When you restart the installation or restart the IDE to add new features, the system should create a GetItInstall.log file at the following path: C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\xx.0\.

You can submit this file when requesting assistance from Quality Portal or the Embarcadero Support team.
