DONT INSTALL IT WITH INTERNET CONNECTED! (Disconnect the network cable, disable Wifi, or any other way to be connected to the Internet (directly or indirectly) to avoid any error during offline installation or refusal of the serial number to be used.)
How to proced before start the installation? (for all work, open one prompt D.O.S. (CMD) always as Administrator) Add the line, in your "hosts" file ("C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc") <- (this is VERY IMPORTANT!)
127.0.0.1 www.teechart.net 127.0.0.1 www.teechart.com 127.0.0.1 www.steema.net 127.0.0.1 www.steema.com and others, if you know it!
Create the directory: "C:\inetpub\wwwroot\files\vcl\public\TeeChartPro9" and copy the file (.PAK) here!
in my example: "Delphi25Binaries-2017.21-windows.pak"
Add, in Windows, the IIS (Internet Information Server Micrsoft) components (complete)
Add & Remove Programs, Active & Deactive Resources Windows, mark "Internet Information Services" complete nodes (Http, Ftp, etc...)
OK, now you'll have all environment to execute the command line: (use prompt D.O.S. as Adminitrator)
Go to "C:\Windows\System32\InetSrv" and execute: appcmd set config /section:staticContent /+[fileExtension='.pak',mimeType='text/plain']
The "TeeRecompile.exe" v2018.25 have one error from setup, then, it dont found TeeMaker files
To correct this problem, do the following:
Manually create a new folder named "VCL.Tests" in the root folder of the suite:
..\ Teechart \ VCL.Tests <-----
Now, inside the new folder "VCL.Tests" copy the original "TeeMaker" folder, so
.. \ Teechart \ VCL.Tests \ TeeMaker <----- with all original files
Ready! Now the "compiler" will work without problems!
The higher the degree, the greater the respect given to the humblest!
