Guys,
I don't mind buying the latest version of C++ Builder,
but I have to know that code-guard works.

Once again, I am retrofitting some BCBXE4 code to BCB6
so I can find some bad memory bugs in my code.

I just need to know if code-guard works in some version
of C++ Builder.

Have you tried madExcept?

AFAIK CG still works in classic compiler (in XE4 too, isn't it?) but it
looks like "abandoned" (has no real support/updates).

BTW, this NG is about Quality Central, not about quality of Studio. :-)
It would be better to post in some of Builder's group.

Alex my good fellow,

Apparently I cant use BCBXE4 codeguard in Win 10.
I tried it in Win 7 and it works.

I rebuilt all my PCs DEV, spare DEV and laptop
with Win 10 licenses.

This came to mind when I saw the latest news that
codeguard now has support for Win 8 and Win 10.

I immediately found 3 crazy bugs that was wreaking
havoc with my .... life. :(

Ah, good to know.

Googling for "codeguard now has support for Win 8 and Win 10" returns

New in RAD Studio 10.2.1: CodeGuard for Windows 8 and 10
