After installing XE8 Update 1 I get this error when opening the IDE options dialog. Followed by vcl200.bpl errors and IDE crash.
Is this a known problem? Is there anyone who got the same error?

Yes, I get the same error. Quite annoying for an update that required reinstalling Delphi...

Hmm, I didn't see the notice about uninstalling first, and just
installed update 1 without uninstalling XE8, and everything is working
fine.

Depends on the update. The subscription one does require it, but the non
subscription one did not IIRC.

I have the subscription. It is interesting that some who uninstalled
first are having issues, and some who didn't are not.

I usually try to update without uninstallation first, but knowing that
this may fail terribly and prepared to do everything over again. If it
works, I gained some time. If it doesn't, I probably lose a lot of
time. <g>

Most of the time it worked, though, although it was not recommended
that way.

Update, not upgrade. You are supposed to uninstall XE8 prior to
installing XE8 update 1. XE7 and XE8 should coexist just fine.

Depends on whether you are talking about the General Update or the
Subscription update. The General Update does require that XE8 be already
installed. The Subscription update requires that you uninstall XE8
first, so naturally you don't need to install XE8 before installing the
XE8 subscription update.

If you have an update for version x, it is not unusual that you must
uninstall the previous build of version x. It does not mean you must
uninstall version x-1.

I got the same trouble. I have the Subscription so I uninstalled first but no result! It was unusable so I had to return to XE8. Any suggestions? I had IDE Fix Pack installed.

Interesting that you did an uninstall first and the same problem occur. I did the webinstaller update 1 for subscription and let it do it's thing. I don't know if it does uninstall too.
So, you did a complete uninstall and installed the update and you get the same problem? I tried to uninstall FixPack only but that doesn't help, only that the
"find declarartion" (Ctrl-click to find procedure/variable) is "broken" again by increasing the memory (task manager) and waiting.. up to 1GB and when it find the
declaration it drops back too few 100 MB. I keep the installation as it is because it already took me two middays installing. I install FixPack back to avoid the Find Declaration "bug?"

Nope. I uninstalled XE8 and installed Update 1. Which took half a day cause I had to download all of the install files again. No Fixpack, no GExperts installed yet, I wanted to keep XE8 clean in the beginning.

I deem it unlikely we will be able to fix your problem based on the
quality portal report you have written. We need steps we can follow to
reproduce the problem on our systems and your steps will not do that. Is
is pretty obvious to me something else has happened along the way which
is causing Tools | Options to fail. My speculation would be something
3rd party or a local security policy. I recommend you try the following:

1. Right click on the shortcut you are using to start your product and
select Run as Administrator. I'll admit I deem this highly unlikely to
solve your problem. However, it is so easy to try, I recommend you try
it first.

2. Start your product with the -r command line switch as shown here:
http://support.embarcadero.com/article/42597

3. Run msconfig. Select diagnostic mode and reboot. Note that diagnostic
mode turns off many things, most notably internet connectivity. So, you
will want to run msconfig and return to normal mode as soon as it is
practical.

4. Turn off virus protection, or at least white list bds.exe or the bin
folder of your product install. This one is a real long shot too, as
virus protection usually is a problem on installation, registration or
starting the product and not when running the product.

5. Another very long shot. Follow the instructions near the bottom of
http://support.embarcadero.com/article/44469 about deleting ETTracker.dll.

I see you created a case on Tuesday with our EMEA support group that I
am a bit surprised they have not worked on yet. I'm going to suggest
they have not done so because they are baffled at the cause of your
problem. To be honest, I am too. The suggestions I have given above are
generic suggestions to try when you have something weird going on and we
have no idea why. However, I would suggest you reply to the automated
email you got when your case was created and let them know the results
of what I have suggested above.

In discussing your problem with a co-worker, we speculate this problem
might not happen with people that do full installs. Therefore, I deem it
unlikely we will be able to fix your problem based on the quality portal
report you have written. We need steps we can follow to reproduce the
problem on our systems and your steps will not do that. So, might you
have not installed some of the mobile bits?

Also, to factor out some simple things, I recommend you do the following:

1. Right click on the shortcut you are using to start your product and

I guess it might be an issue in Update 1. If I google "IDEiOSPlatform220.bpl" there are
more and more people with this issue. Pitty because I was cheerfull about that the update
was keeping the settings and components.

While I know nothing of this 3rd party component, I would expect that
launching the product with the -r command line switch as I previous
suggested would cause it to not be loaded and not make the error occur.
So, I'm quite puzzled why the error seemingly occurs when launching with
-r.

Note that the -r command line switch is discussed here:

Your suggestion was right. It doesn't occur using the -r switch.
The solution that it is caused by RXLib comes from the EMB quality central people
who did a good job tracing the problem.

Confirmed! I removed RXLib completely from XE8 and the error is gone. Thanks to all who participated in solving the problem!!!

You should report it to the 3rd party. We have no idea what they are
doing. They could contact us and indicate exactly what they are doing
that causes the error.

If you have upgrade subscription then you should have support. Create a
free installation/registration case at http://support.embarcadero.com
and ask to be sent your support login.

BTW, if you provided your real name here (I assume it is not really
Registered User), and it was a unique name in our system, then I would
be sending you your login right now.

Me too. One of the things that where still hanging around in the system. Finally something pushed me to delete the last rx-compnents
A lot of FormStorage (size, location) components were still in. Took me some time but finally I got rid of this suite after many years of use.
Note that in the JCL/JVCL almost all RX-components, maybe all, are taken over.
Reminds me again to take care for using 3th party components in the system. Sometimes they look fancy but it can bite you
when you have to switch Delphi versions later on. (or nowadays, targeting other OS'es)
