Go Up to Remote Debugging - Old-Style Procedures

Note: This topic describes how to install the old-style remote debugger.
Note: Although the old-style remote debugging solution is still supported, we recommend that you use the new remote and multi-device debugging solution which enables you to:
  • Use the integrated debugger to debug remote and multi-device applications.
  • Use the Deployment Manager to configure and deploy your applications.

To debug a project on a machine that does not have RAD Studio installed, you must install the remote debugger executable files. When you install the Platform Assistant, the remote debugger and its associated files are installed along with the debugging files. For instructions, see PAServer, the Platform Assistant Server Application.

Remote debugger files installed on the remote machine

On a Windows PC, the remote debugger files are installed by default in C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\22.0\PAServer when you install the Platform Assistant, although you can select another installation directory. If you do not install the Platform Assistant, however, you must copy the following remote debugger files yourself to the remote machine:

  • rmtdbg.exe
  • bccide.dll
  • bordbk.dll
  • bordbkN.dll
  • comp32x.dll
  • dcc32.dll for a Win32 system
  • dcc64.dll for a Win64 system
  • dccosx.dll for an macOS system
Note: On the development PC, the remote debugger files are delivered in C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\22.0\bin.

To register the remote debugger

On the remote computer, register bordbk.dll and bordbk.dll by running the regsvr32.exe registration utility.

For example, on Windows 7, enter C:\Windows\System32\regsvr32.exe bordbk.dll at the command prompt, then enter:

C:\Windows\System32\regsvr32.exe bordbk.dll
