What are people saying about Visual Build

Mark Hill Is this promotion going to be offered today? The buy link is disabled.
Feb 3 2010 at 12:52am Copy Link
Bradley MacDonald Looks like a very nice product. Does it allow me to do multiple step builds?
1. Compile a Delphi App
2. Build a Installation using INNO Setup
3. Send up to my Website via FTP.

It would also be very nice if I could update the projects - like changing the Delphi Appication version information - and change some of the text in the INNO Build.

Bradley MacDonald

Kyle A Yes, that's exactly what it's for. Updating of versions and properties when building Delphi projects, settings and definitions in Inno Setup files, generic updates to text files, and FTP/SFTP uploading are all built-in.
Kinook Software, Inc. - Jan 28 2010 at 12:18am Copy Link
Stefan Hauber Assuming I have a certain compiler, your tool currently does support, e.g. Delphi 2010. In case some times later, when VisualBuild came to version 8, I decide to buy Delphi 2012: Do I have to upgrade VisualBuild to be able to build my programs with Delphi 2012 or can I still use VisualBuild 7.x?

Or are the supported tools kind of script-programs users can modify and include in VisualBuild to allow them to run it with other or updated tools too?

Can I include my own 'compiler', meaning a self-written tool, which creates from a given file (source) another file (destination)?
Feb 2 2010 at 6:06pm Copy Link
Kyle A If we need to update Visual Build to support a newer version of Delphi, and the update is part of a major release (i.e., v8), there would be an upgrade fee for that version.

The built-in actions can't be modified by the end user, but you can add your own actions for calling other compilers and tools.

Kyle A Mark -- the Buy button is now enabled (I think there was a temporary glitch on the BDJ site).
Kinook Software, Inc. - Feb 3 2010 at 1:15am Copy Link
David Pickett This is a great deal! I've used Visual Build in the past and it's the bee's knees for automated complex builds.

(No relation, business or otherwise, with Kinook or employees thereof...just a happy former user :).)

Nico Westerdale Due to the overwhelming response Kinook Software, Inc. has agreed to extend this deal for another day - Enjoy!

Mica D I am having more than one version of C++Builder on my system. How can I choose the C++Builder-version (e.g. the location of the compiler-program) when adding a 'Make C++ Builder' node to my project?

I tried, but VisualBuild always seems to use the newest version.
Feb 3 2010 at 4:24pm Copy Link
Kyle A Yes -- see the Override default location field on the Options tab.
Kinook Software, Inc. - Feb 4 2010 at 2:58am Copy Link
Yugo Yaris Exactly what version is being sold here???
Jan 28 2011 at 6:03am Copy Link
Kyle A The current version (v7.7).
Kinook Software, Inc. - Jan 28 2011 at 6:14am Copy Link
Michael R. Is Embarcadero's C++Builder XE supported by v7?
Jan 30 2011 at 5:41pm Copy Link
Richard Andersen Does Subversion support include support for TortoiseSVN?
Jan 31 2011 at 8:50am Copy Link
Kyle A TortoiseSVN is just a GUI front-end for Subversion, and would not be reliable in an automated build process. Visual Build does include an action to call the Subversion client directly.
Kinook Software, Inc. - Jan 31 2011 at 9:00am Copy Link
Richard Andersen Well I'm using TortoiseSVN as basis for VisualSVN which is a VS plugin. Can the version of Subversion which is installed by TortoiseSVN be used by Visual Build? I imagine there might be some conflict if I install a different version of Subversion as well.
Jan 31 2011 at 9:14am Copy Link
Kyle A AFAIK, TortoiseSVN doesn't install Subversion itself, but rather links with its libraries. It looks like VisualSVN does have an installer option to install the Subversion command-line tools (and it also adds the location to the PATH), which Visual Build could call.
Kinook Software, Inc. - Jan 31 2011 at 9:36am Copy Link
Richard Andersen You're probabvly right, the TortoiseSVN FAQ says this:

"Do I need to install Subversion before I can use TortoiseSVN?
No. TortoiseSVN comes with everything you need to access a repository. Only if you want to set up a server then you will need the Subversion package".

I can see that I have svn.exe, svnadmin.exe and svnlook.exe in the VisualSVN/bin folder. So maybe that will do it.

Jan 31 2011 at 9:57am Copy Link
Deleto Maximo Richard,
yes, Visual Build works fantastically with Subversion (see, which Kyle already mentioned). I am using VS2010 with VisualSVN, Tarma InstallMate and Visual Build (Trial yet, waiting for this offer desperately!). It's an awesome team, Visual Build runs very smoothly.

I must say Visual Build is a fantastic solution and I am very mad I haven't stumbled upon it earlier. All that is left to me now is the core task of a software developer: coding. I love it!
Kyle, thank you to Kinook Software for such a great product and such a great offer!
Feb 1 2011 at 3:03am Copy Link
Trond Grontoft I bought Visual Build a while ago, and it's a fantastic tool.

My main job
- runs the Delphi XE compiler
- creates the help file
- runs Sisulizer to update the translation dlls
- creates the install file (plus a zipped version)
- updates the download page on the web
- transfers everything to the web
- and sends an email to everybody who needs to know

All in one go. And it gets the compiler switches and version / build numbers correct - every time. It's almost too easy to make a new release these days.

I also use it for a lot of small tasks. Like updating the price list on our web from our back office database. And backing up the SVN repository. And running a daily analysis of our source code...

In short: one of my best investments.
Feb 2 2011 at 7:05pm Copy Link
Deleto Maximo I have been working with this tool for almost a month now and it's absolutely terrific. I highly recommend this one to any Windows developer, so thank you, again, very much!

Apr 17 2015 at 7:16am Copy Link
Shazza Looks like the current version doesn’t support Delphi 10.3 (which given it’s only been out a few days isn’t surprising). When do you expect to update it for 10.3, and will that be a major version upgrade? What is the pricing for upgrades?
Nov 26 2018 at 9:04am Copy Link
Kyle A In the next few weeks. It will be a minor release (free). Regular price for major release upgrades is $149.
Kinook Software, Inc. - Nov 26 2018 at 9:16am Copy Link
Shazza Thanks Kyle,

I’ve been looking at the version history on the website, and it seems as though there is no consistent time between minor version releases. I’m trying to get a sense of how much time I can expect to be able to use my $99 investment before an upgrade is required in order to keep pace with Delphi changes. The last time this deal was offered, it was for v8.7, and the next release was 9.0. You have already said the next release will be a minor release in a couple of weeks, but will that release be 9.8 or 9.9?

Nov 26 2018 at 7:25pm Copy Link
Kyle A v9.8. Given that there were 18 months from Delphi 10.2 to 10.3, it's likely that the next VBP release will be good for Delphi changes for quite a while.

Shazza Thanks Kyle

Bradley MacDonald Quick Question - I use a Software Licensing tool call WinLicense. I see that on your website - you have not got any of these types of Shareware licensing tools listed - and I understand they are a little obscure.

How would you recommend handling this sort of program? Is there a way I can setup a custom command line to do that function in the build? As I have to do it twice in the build process - (once for EXE and once for the installer) - the build process would have to wait for it to complete before moving to the next step.


Nov 28 2018 at 8:55am Copy Link
Kyle A Use the Run Program action to call a third-party tool.

Yes, Visual Build will run in a virtual machine.
Kinook Software, Inc. - Nov 28 2018 at 9:33am Copy Link

Thank you for the quick replies.
Just purchased.

Have a great day!

Shazza I see in the samples folder there is a "build launcher" application. Unfortunately I don't understand C#, but if I understand the concept correctly, it seems to be front end for setting some properties and kicking off a build script. Is that correct?

If so, is it possible to write a launcher in Delphi, and if so, how would that application interact with the build script to set the values, kick off the build etc?
Nov 28 2018 at 1:28pm Copy Link
Kyle A Yes, the BuildLauncher collects inputs, then generates and calls Visual Build with command-line parameters to define macro values used by the build script. You could do the same thing with a Delphi app.
Kinook Software, Inc. - Nov 28 2018 at 2:24pm Copy Link
Shazza Thanks Kyle - I’ve purchased, so looking forward to getting my build process automated.

Mark Krieger Quick question - while the text works well under 4K screens (need to adjust the columns though) the icon bar is kind of unusable with microscopic icons.
Will you be adding bigger icons still in the v9 updates?
Nov 29 2018 at 11:27am Copy Link
Kyle A It's on our list. For now, a couple of options:

1) Modify the properties of the Visual Build shortcut -> Compatibility tab -> Change high DPI settings -> Override high DPI scaling behavior --> set to System (Enhanced)


2) Create the following DWORD registry value setting with a value of 0 and restart Visual Build:

Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Kinook Software\Visual Build Professional 9\Options\DPIAware

Mark Krieger Thanks @Kyle
It looks quite different now. Much less on the screen but even easier to read and not just bigger images :)
Nov 29 2018 at 12:13pm Copy Link
Kyle A What do you mean by can't try Enhanced ZIP since it is not licensed? All features should be available in the eval version.
Kinook Software, Inc. - Nov 29 2018 at 12:22pm Copy Link
Mark Krieger Hi Kyle

Here's a screenshot:
Nov 29 2018 at 12:26pm Copy Link
Kyle A That is coming from the ZIP component used by Visual Build, which shouldn't be happening (AFAIK, our license for that product should enable all features). Can you send your .bld file to Thanks.
Kinook Software, Inc. - Nov 29 2018 at 12:43pm Copy Link
Shazza @Kyle (FYI) I tried both options for DPI scaling and neither worked on my QHD monitors. I have resorted to customising the toolbar and selecting "large icons" which makes them readable and hence usable, but it's not pretty.
Nov 29 2018 at 1:17pm Copy Link
Gary Smith It is commonly understood that the terms updates and upgrades have different meanings.

Updates are for new releases for a major version number (e.g., 1,1, 1.2.4, 1.9.3, all for the 1.x major release).

Upgrades are when the major version number changes. (e.g., 1.x changes to 2.x). Typically a major number changes only when significant features are added to the software.

Given these common definitions, in the Fine Print section, there is a statement that is confusing:

"Upgrades to future versions of the software will be free up to the next major version."

That statement implies that upgrades will not be free since an Upgrade is a major version number change. There is no mention of "Updates." Should the first use of "upgrade" been "updates" instead, as in:

Updates to future versions of the software will be free up to the next major version.


Thanks in advance for your answer.
Nov 30 2018 at 8:29pm Copy Link
Kyle A Yes, that should be updates rather than upgrades, but we don't control that content.
Kinook Software, Inc. - Dec 1 2018 at 11:11am Copy Link
Gary Smith Thanks Kyle for your response, but your response says you do not control that content. Then if the vendor does not control it, who does control that content?

Kimmo Lahtinen I didn't notice open source tools like Python or Lazarus to be supported.
Nov 14 2019 at 5:02am Copy Link
Kyle A @Shazza: You won't find a better deal for upgrading than this.

@Kimmo Lahtinen: We'll add these to our request list, but you can integrate other tools via the Run Program action, Run Script action, or by creating user-defined actions.
