I'm a Delphi developer. I work for a software company which does solutions for retail management, including inventory, POS, reporting, BI, Tags, and more. It's been in Delphi since Delphi's been around.

I am actively in Stack Overflow monitoring the Delphi tag, and looking for those questions I can answer and also contributing my time to keep Stack Overflow in order. I'm not an expert in anything, a jack of all trades rather. But I love to help people when I'm able to.

I've known Delphi since about 2007 now, and before that, I had learned VB6. I havn't gone back to VB since I learned Delphi. I also taught myself QBasic and HTML as a kid. It hasn't been until the past 5 years that I've been diving into programming.

Since then I've also become vaguely familiar with ASP.NET with C#, as well as some C# windows apps. But I'm not too fond of the whole .NET idea. .NET is good for web platforms and such, but not for win apps.

My latest work has been with Delphi XE7 mobile development. I'm still very raw on the subject, but see a huge potential behind it.

My strengths:

  • Understanding the bigger picture of projects
  • Writing Custom Classes, Components, and Controls
  • Code organization (within unit or namespace)
  • Writing purely independent classes (as opposed to cross-referencing units or namespaces)
  • User Friendly UI's
  • Developer Friendly Classes
  • Encapsulating layers of business logic

My weaknesses:

  • Lower-level coding (such as Assembly)
  • Platform-specific design (using Firemonkey)

It's always nice to know you're able to do something, even if you never use it.

+1 though for hinting to that registry key, although in the comments.

The only key under the FileExts folder is just Directory, whereas on a good install there are hundreds of file extensions listed here.

I already tried the command prompt, that's when I concluded the file really does not exist.

As a trial, I think I should create a new user account, and see if the same thing happens there.

comment Show Desktop button too quick in Windows 7
Plus I only use system restore if something's corrupted. This is just one particular setting. It's highly illogical to revert to a restore point just to fix one setting.

@Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 For people who are afraid to do things like change registry entries, not to revert one tiny little setting.

comment Show Desktop button too quick in Windows 7
Awesome, and I'm assuming it also requires a restart of Explorer.exe to apply the changes. Unless there's a Windows API call or message I could call to apply the change?
