Abstract: Delphi 2007 Announcement
Delphi 2007 has been released. Please review the information below and also the attached readme and installation notes file, whichare also included with the product.
Installation.The default installation location for Delphi 2007 is C:\Program Files\CodeGear\RAD Studio\5.0. Therefore there is no danger of overwriting the installation of any previous version of Borland Developer Studio or Delphi. We would expect that you can run older versions of BDS and Delphi after having installed Delphi 2007.Even though Delphi 2007 targets native Win32 binaries only, the IDE still has dependencies on .NET components such as the .NET Framework 2.0, .NET Framework SDK 2.0 and Visual J# 2.0. It also requires MSXML.These will be installed automatically if not present on the system.Serial Number.
The new installation program prompts for a serial number. Please ensure that you have this ready when starting the installation.Backward CompatibilityDelphi 2007 is backwardly compatible with all previous versions of Delphi. We would expect that projects created with previous versions of BDS and Delphi will work fine in Delphi 2007. If you use components supplied by a third party, please check with the supplier of these components for any known compatibility issues.
Delphi 2007 features new functionality to target the Windows Vista Operating System. If you are planning to install Delphi 2007 on Windows Vista itself, please observe the following points:
If you upgraded from Borland Developer Studio, you can continue to use that license as well as long as you are the only user.
