Description
[Regression from D2010]
In the Project Options box for my project, I click on the Build Events node, and then I click on either of the Edit... buttons.  In the ensuing dialog box titled "Pre-Build event" or "Post-Build event", the list of Macros in the bottom half of the form is completely empty.  I have verified that my Delphi 2010 product, installed on this same machine, does contain a list of useful macros I can use.  So, where are they in XE?  How can I get them back, as the list appears read-only?
Steps to Reproduce:
By USc:
- create a new project
- open the project options
- select page Build Events
- press an Edit... button on the right

expected: there are macros like BDS, DEFINES, ..., WINDIR in "...-Build event" dialogs on the bottom in the Macros groupbox
actual: there are no macros

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5533718/build-event-macros-in-delphi-xe/5533901 has the list of macros for Delphi 2010, which also work in Delphi XE even though it doesn't show them.
