Delphi 6 Upgrade Version

Hi all,

  Years back I bought Delphi 6 upgrade. However it wasn't really an upgrade it was the full version and it didn't require any previous version on the PC where it was installed.  I sold it to someone and they are concerned that since it says upgrade on the box they won't be able to upgrade again to a newer version of Delphi. I told them I don't think they'll have any problem.

  Can someone tell me whether or not I am right?

Thanks,
Ed

The license doesn't allow one developer to sell their copy to another
developer.

The upgrade *license* is bound to your previous version *license*,  If you 
transfer ownership of your Delphi 6 upgrade, you need to also give them 
the older version you upgraded from.

Technically, the upgrade CD installs on a blank, fresh machine, but the 
*license* is not valid if there isn't an older version bundled with it 
somehow.  You need a new user license in the upgrade chain somewhere.

Newer versions of Delphi don't allow transfer of ownership without 
contacting CodeGear first.

Technically, this condition violates the law in many
EU countries and therefore can be considered void.

Problem with Delphi 6 to Delphi 7 upgrade
I have just purchased Delphi XE because I have an immediate need of D7 which came for free with XE. I downloaded and installed D7 and I think I applied the Update 1 that I had also downloaded.

I get the following error:- [Fatal Error] apm.dpr(225): Unit ExtDlgs was compiled with a different version of ExtCtrls.TPanel I have checked the library paths all point to D7 versions of everything and now am at a loss to know what to do next.

Delphi 6 to Delphi 2010 upgrade and ADO
We have an application written in Delphi 6 Professional that uses ADO to access databases servers that may be on other PCs in our network. We want to move to Delphi 2010 but can't decide if we need Professional or Enterprise. 2010 Pro has dbGO - will this give us the same functionality as the ADO components we use in Delphi 6 Pro?

Upgrad to Delphi 2010 Enterprise from Delphi 6 Enterprise
Hi, Is it possible to use the upgrade offer when upgrading to "Delphi 2010 Enterprise" from "Delphi 6 Enterprise" ? I can find a lot of different examples on upgrades.... but not this one ;-( Why is the price in the Nordic region higher than if I was buying in US? (40% off....) I've tried to registre my "Delphi 6" in order to reveive the Promo offer key, but I can't registre. Why is this ? Best regards Nils Unfortunately Embarcadero has changed the upgrading rules since February 1st. You can see it at http://www.embarcadero.com/upgrade...

I have delphi 7 interprise installed on my PC. Our company bought a delphi 2009 professional (upgrade). All of our projects now are made in delphi 7.

Delphi 5 to Delphi 6 and up
Dear List, Trying to add 7Zip compression support to my delphi application. I am using the ported 7Zip sdk (see their website, they have a link). I am stumped on how to rewrite a single function: function ReverseDecode(var Models: array of SmallInt; ....): ..... where the input is mostly a fixed size array of SmallInt. This code perfectly compiles and functions in Delphi 6 and up, but in Delphi 5 I get the error: There is no overloaded version of 'ReverseDecode' that can be called with these arguments And obviously, the input (fixed) isn't the same as the param de...

Upgrading to Delphi 2009 from Delphi 5
I've decided it's time to upgrade to Delphi 2009 Professional from my current Delphi 5 Professional which (according to the FAQ) makes me eligible for the upgrade pricing. However, I'd just like to clarify how this process works. My concern is that my Delphi 5 is not registered on the CodeGear site and this doesn't seem to be possible as far as I can tell. When installing the trial I noticed that Delphi 2009 registers itself with your CodeGear account so does this mean that the previous version must be registered there to verify you own a Professional edition? I plan to o...

Delphi 5 to Delphi 6 conversion

These include: Symbol 'FileGetAttr' is specific to a platform Symbol 'FileSetAttr' is specific to a platform Symbol 'faReadOnly' is specific to a platform We want this conversion to be carried out correctly. We don't view the simple solution of switching off those warnings or symbols as being the correct way. What we want is the same platform independence as other functions. For example, all o...

delphi.Net Delphi 2005 Project Upgrades?
Our company aquired the software property from another last year. Most of the projects were written in Delphi 2007. We purchased Delphi XE which gave us access to previous versions, including D 2007... all is well. However, 3 projects were written Delphi 2005 for .Net. The VM we received from this company included D2005 but it was licensed from the previous developer. I've contacted Embarcadero about obtaining a copy and or a license+registration for Delphi 2005 and was told this product is no longer available. I'm under the impression Delphi for .Net was abandoned. My qu...
