Special Quick PDF Library Hot Fix For Delphi XE2 Update 4

March 3, 2012

A few days ago Embarcadero released Delphi XE2 Update 4 and due to some changes to signatures for certain functions some Quick PDF Library DCU files are unable to be compiled. We have put in a place a hot fix for this issue while we wait on further information from Embarcadero.

Customers using Delphi XE2 update 3 or earlier can continue using the DCUs provided with the main version of Quick PDF Library, available from the updates page. Customers using Delphi XE2 update 4 will need to use these special DCUs:

This hot fix is only available for version 8.14 beta of Quick PDF Library. We will not be providing this hot fix for version 8.13.

Depending on whether this is an accidental or intentional change by Embarcadero we’ll make changes to the installer to accommodate all Delphi XE2 updates with the release of 8.14 in a few weeks.
