There are at least 3 new tools in XE5 that should have been added to the tools menu, for FireDAC and REST. FireDAC used to have a separate menu, which we decided to remove, but the corresponding entries failed to make to the Tools menu, an omission we plan fixing in the future. For now, you can use the Tools | Configure Tools menu to open the Tools Configuration dialog box, press the Add button, and then use the Browse button to locate them.

The three executables (all from the C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\RAD Studio\12.0\bin folder, or similar depending on your flavor of Windows) are:

  • FireDAC Explorer (FDExplorer.exe)
  • FireDAC Monitor (FDMonitor.exe)
  • REST Debugger (RESTDebugger.exe)

You can see how to add them in the screenshot below:

After this configuration, your Delphi XE5 will have a full featured Tools menu:

Notice that these 3 tools should be in all editions of Delphi XE5, as they are not Enterprise-only or Mobile-specific capabilities.
