Delphi XE3 IDE Crash

I would like to know if I'm the only one to suffer the constant crash of the IDE of DXE3!
After about an hour of use the IDE starts to become unstable, and crashes systematically when I double-click on the Project manager window  to switch to a form or a unit!
Ther are also other types of crashes but that is the most systematic and actually makes the system unusable because even restart Delphi on the first or second new click it crash again!
Only restarting the PC (WIN7) I can become to work quiet for about an hour!
In the system I installed a few third-party components, only Jedi, FastReport Professional and Eurekalog, but I don't think it might depend on these!

As I said in my previous post, for me it is impossible to work in a serious way in an environment that crashes so often!
I don't know if everything depends on my relative way to work (which in any case was fine on D7) but things are now really embarrassing!
Consider that each my project is always composed of a main program (EXE), of a secondary package that puts in common certain structures, and finally a series of plugins (DPK / BPL) that are loaded at runtime by the main program!
All these different projects make up my group project!
_As I said, the most common problem is that when I click from Project Manager to open an unit/form I'm in the hands of God!_ 
In fact the system often crashes disastrously with no chance of recovering the code written and not yet saved!
I tried to rebuild the project from scratch, recreating all the structures, but things have not changed at all! 
Consider that absolutely I don't use tools like Subversion or other internal management / analysis of the code, and I use few external components in addition, and it does not depend directly from my PC because I have the same problems on another laptop that I use!
At this point I do not know what to do, I can't work in this way! It is absolutly impossible!
I do not know if this type of problem will be solved by Embarcadero shortly, since reading the forums some customers complain that there are still bugs dating back to the XE2 IDE version!
Probably I will try to install the XE, which long ago I had purchased but never used due to lack time, and try to see if it is more stable, even if it annoys me a lot because I used features that were not yet available in XE (not to mention the huge waste of time)!
Do you think that they can sell a product with these problems (probably yes :-( )! 
Here and there I read that there are other problems (always on the IDE) and many other things (one on all FireMonkey) that have bigger problems! 
I don't ask that the environment is free from problems, I realize that more things are complicated more it's hard to be perfect, but a product to be sold must give certain guarantees of operation, and as I see it XE3 product don't matches them at least at this version step!
Has anyone had this kind of problem, then solve it somehow?

Thank's in advance!

Lorenzo, did you already a try a new clean install of XE3? It's a PITA but since you don't have that many external packages I'd try that. ==>

Deinstall the packages
Deinstall Delphi
Reboot
Find all folders and files containing 'Embarcadero' and 'CodeGear' and remove them
Check for remaining .pas files that might belong to the installs, remove them (or their directories)
Run Tweaknow Regcleaner and remove all 'Safe to remove' registry keys. Repear until no more issues found.
Reboot
Download the xe3 Update 1 ISO
Reinstall
Reinstall external packages

Takes you half a day, but may be worth it.

Good luck

Ok I'll try to reinstall everything, so half a day and maybe more I would have lost anyway trying to install XE!
Thanks for the tip, I wanted to do it,but subconsciously I was convinced that it would not solve anything!
Let's hope so!

thanks  Jan

Ok I uninstalled everything, cleaned everything and reinstalled again everything and now it seems to works!
I hope not to have to perform this operation every time an update is released!

Hi, I've noticed too strange IDE behaviours after installing Delphi XE3 update 2. After a little of editing, compiling etc. the right click on the IDE window (on editor and on tab page on top)  always raises on Access Violation at address 5005A884 in rtl170.bpl. The call stack is always this:

Any one noticed the same behaviour?

Please don't tell me that I've to uninstall and so re-install the IDE because it is an incredible waste of time also for me. I wanto to do that only if I'm sure to solve the problem.

Thanks

No one has idea? Is there a new update pack for the next future? It is impossible to work wiht the IDE in this conditions: it crashes an incredible amount of times. I will try the uninstall and the re-install. I hope to solve with re-install.

While I don't know what your problem is, I am quite skeptical that a 
re-install will fix it. I have three really general suggestions for you.

1. run msconfig. Select diagnostic mode and reboot. If the problem stops 
happening, you can at least point to something outside the IDE. Note 
that diagnostic mode turns off lots of things, most notably internet 
connectivity.

2. Start the the IDE using the -r switch as discussed here: 
http://support.embarcadero.com/article/42597 The biggest thing this will 
do is disable third party components you might have installed that are 
causing a problem.

3. Try to figure out if the problem is specific to your project by 
working on a new or different one. While this does not solve the 
problem, it perhaps isolates it a bit and might lead to discovering the 
cause.

I will note that our development team uses the product itself to develop 
future versions. If it's a prevalent problem, they would see it.

We are always working in new things. That might be fixes or new 
features. That's the nature of the business. It's also the nature of 
business, and generally the legal system, to not be able to tell you 
about anything new until it is available. So, it is a logical assumption 
that some day there will be update pack in one form or another. What I 
cannot tell you is what it might contain or when it will be available. 
However, if we don't know how to reproduce your problem, it is highly 
unlikely to have a fix for it.

Quinn, 

Thanks for the answer. As you predict reinstalling the IDE don't solve my issue; I waste an entire day to do that and unfortunatly I did it before reading your answer! I don't know where my problem could be but I'm almost sure that this problem appeared with update pack 2. I'm working on a machine with Win8 Professional 64bit. I'm using these third party components : TMS component pack, TMS Async, EurekaLog, JEDI + JVCL, Indy (the daily version), Rave, EasyMAPI, FibPlus, OmniThreadLibrary,. JSONComponents
, PNGComponents, TP Abbrevia,  SynEdit and some custom components. The only expert I've installed on IDE is GExperts (it is still a beta version for XE3).

In addition to the problem of access violation on right click in the editor, I'm also noticing problems in the IDE menu: sometimes it doesn't react (the pulldown doesn't appear) I need to minimize the IDE and then maximize it and the menù works again. Very often shortcuts like CTRL-SHIFT-UP and CTRL-SHIFT-DOWN doesn't work : I need to close the IDE and restart it and then they return to work. Could it be a sort of incompatibility with Win8? I will try some of your suggestions to try to isolate the problem
.

It's an amazing thing that you are working on new things and new features but please don't forget VCL and bugs in QC. I don't know how many people are planning to migrate their applications on Firemonky, FireDAC ecc, I'm very very far from this just now. I've millions of VCL code lines in my applications and for example, for me It is surpising that still in XE3 to use PNG images in a list I have to use a free library like PNGComponents! This library do a great job but it implements incredible workarounds 
to override TCustomImageList methods. Is it possible to have native support (I mean real native support with real transparency) to PNG components in the next VCL TImageList versions? Also TSpeedButton and TBitBtn could be more useful with PNG support. I'm also trying to use XE3 vcl styles with action menu bar but it seems to be just a little bit more than an alpha version. Will it be possible to have the bugs signaled in QC (also the ones not rated) solved without waiting always the next main release? I a
pologize for the vent but I'm trying to switch from Delphi 2010 to XE3 and I'm having several problems.

More info: 

I don't know if it can help to understand the problema but I realize that this kind of IDE crashes happens always after working on project groups and running operations on multiple projects like build/compile all. As I'm porting from D2010 to XE3 and so I'm doing changes on my libraries and third party components, in these I day I often do this operations:

1. I modify my runtime libraries
2. I update third party components
3. Using project groups I recompile all projects that use libraries at points 1,2

After doing so the result is always an XE3 IDE very unstable and I get access violations on standard operations like right click on the IDE elements (editor tabs, variables in debug etc).

If I work on a specific project instead (without group operations) the IDE seems working well.

I am having similar problems with AVs in rtl170.bpl in XE3 as well. I am porting a windows7 C++Builder project from 2010 to XE3 R2. I have searched the internet for quite a while now, including these forums, and it appears that while various folks are having similar trouble, there have been no real solutions offered.

Why did I upgrade to XE3 again?

And why would I now want to upgrade to XE5?

I have spent thousands and now have a development environment I can't use with no one apparently able to provide a fix. Nice.

Will there be any solutions forthcoming? Or should I simply kiss XE3 and beyond goodbye?

XE4 has been so bad we're using notepad++ to edit source files as it's the only way to be sure we won't lose work. 

Unless embarcadero put some serious effort into fixing bugs instead of adding new whiz bang features, I can see us never upgrading to XE5 (and in fact going back to XE2 as what we have now is simply unusable).  Personally I'm pushing to get off delphi but with a couple of million lines of code that's impractical in the short term.

Sorry to hear about your troubles, Tony.

I think I may have found a work-around for my trouble. That's how I usually fix things, i.e., I restructure my code and try to do the same thing a different way to get around something that's not working ... it's very time-consuming, frustrating, etc., but I probably don't have any business taking it out on Embarcadero as its within the realm of possibility that I don't always know what I'm doing ...

Anyhow, fingers crossed for XE5. Hope things start looking up for all concerned.

Is it posible to configure Delphi XE3 IDE to use Delphi 7 compiler/debuger
Hi! Like many other developer out there I have several project which has been developed with older version of Delphi (Delphi 7). Since theese projects rely on some components which are not compatible with newer versions of Delphi (no newer versions available) I'm forced to do any maintnance on theese projects using Delphi 7. Another solution would be to find replacment components which would provide me with same capabilities and work with latest versions of Delphi. But this would probbably require compleete rewritings of my projects (lots and lots of work). So currently I'm using...

IDE crash with Delphi 2009
Hi, I recently bought Delphi 2009 and tried upgrading a rather big project. However, the IDE completely disappears every time I try to compile. After a few hours of debugging I found the offensive code and noticed there is already a QC for it: http://qc.codegear.com/wc/qcmain.aspx?d=66966 However, such a huge bug has not made it into SP1. This is really a show stopper for me, as I can't compile my program; finding all the instances of my code that crash the compiler would take me a really long time which I do not want to invest, as I hope this bug will eventually get fixed. ...

Delphi 2006 vs Delphi 2009 IDE stability
Hello, all. I have medium sized project which includes about 20Mb of source code (just size of *.pas files). I use Delphi 2006. There are third party component suites JVCL, DevExpress Bars, Pegasus Imaging. All updates applied. The main problem is IDE stability. About four..five times a day IDE become unstable after intensive usage of code insight functions (most often I press Ctrl+Space key). The best outcome is that I have to save everything and restart the IDE. The worst outcome is when IDE stalls or falls into endless loop of error messages and any unsaved work is lost. OS...

Delphi XE8 Random IDE crashes
For the first time in recent memory, my Delphi IDE is just plain unstable. I'm using XE8 Update 1 and of course, with /NOCASTALIA. I have removed everything I can from Delphi and still use it (no IDE plugins, etc). I've only recently begun using XE8 (as in the last few weeks.) I am only working with VCL projects. Obviously this is not a place to post bug reports. But even if it were, I couldn't. When the IDE crashes, there is NO useful information. When I distribute my own applications, I use MadExcept so that users can provide me with useful information if some...
