How to apply InterBase ToGo updates to Rad Studio XE3/XE4

Abstract: Most of the working is unzipping the appropriate files to the %IBREDISTDIR% folder.

Q. I've downloaded InterBase XE3 ToGo updates. What do I need to do to get RAD Studio XE3/XE4 to use them?

A. Almost all InterBase ToGo files used by RAD Studio are contained in your %IBREDISTDIR% folder.

The InterBase XE3 ToGo Update is collection of zip files of these directories (and more):

To update RAD Studio to have it use the InterBase ToGo update, most of the work is updating the %IBREDISTDIR% folder. Extract the appropriate min version version (if appropriate) and copy it to the appropriate folder within your %IBREDISTDIR% folder.  For ios_device.zip and ios_sim.zip, extract the ios_device and ios_sim folders within the .zip file to the %IBREDISTDIR% folder. For Win32_togo, win64_to and osx32_togo folders within the %IBREDISTDIR% folder, extract the contents of the corresponding min file. For example, extract the contents win32_min.zip to %IBREDISTDIR%\Win32_togo.

Finally, the static library for iOS device needs to be extracted to the appropriate library within your RAD Studio XE4 install. To do so, extract libibtogo.a from ios_device.zip to the lib\iosDevice\debug and lib\iosDevice\release folders within your RAD Studio XE4 install. Note that libibtogo.a does not apply to RAD Studio XE3 as it does not include mobile development.
