In order to use the IDE to develop applications for Mac OS X or for iOS, you need to install and run the Platform Assistant on the Mac. The Platform Assistant server file name is PAServer-17.0.app. If you use the default port number (64211), you should be able to use the Platform Assistant without changing any parameters.

This topic illustrates the installation process on the Mac.

Installing PAServer

  1. Transfer the PAServer installer (named PAServer17.0.pkg) to your Mac OS X machine. The PAServer installer can be found at:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\17.0\PAServer\PAServer17.0.pkg
  2. Next run the installer by double-clicking the PAServer17.0.pkg file in the Finder:
