Instructions for Installation

Verify the Disk Space Required for Installation Process and Product Footprint

Before you start the installation, you should ensure that your development system has sufficient free disk space to allow caching and copying files during the installation and to accommodate the product footprint when installed. Together, the product install and the product footprint might require free disk space between:

  • 30 GB of free space (for a Delphi-only Professional SKU)
  • 50 GB of free space (for a studio SKU with mobile)

Installing XE6 Update 1

To start the installation, run the setup.exe installer. If you have XE6 already installed, you will be prompted that XE6 will be uninstalled and then Update 1 will be installed.

Installing the ISO

Installing the XE6 Update 1 ISO

If you downloaded the ISO for XE6 Update 1, then you must do the following:

  1. If you have XE6 installed, the Update 1 installer will uninstall XE6 for you (or you can uninstall the XE6 product yourself).
  2. Mount the ISO and run <install_RADStudio.exe> to start the installation.

Installing the Platform Assistant Update

The Platform Assistant server is required for cross-platform application development that targets either Mac OS X or iOS (the iOS simulator or iOS device). The XE6 Update 1 install contains new versions of the Platform Assistant installers (including PAServer.exe and PAServer.pkg). The installer files are located in the PAServer folder.

To uninstall the Platform Assistant:

  • On Windows, use Uninstall PAServer.exe to uninstall the Platform Assistant (recommended). The Uninstall program is located in the installation directory for the Platform Assistant.
