Is it worth to move my code from Delphi 2009 to Delphi 2010?
we are working on Delphi 2009 till this day because we do not have the time to upgrade our code to the newest version. There is always something more important (features, bugs...) and our code has 2+ million lines.
I thought that instead of moving from D2009 to XE7 I could atleast move code to D2010 because it is more or less backward compatible and it shouldn't take me that much of a work. I wanted to ask you about your opinion. Is it a good version to move to?

Still using that old workhorse, Delphi7, but am going to the conference in
London hosted by Embarcadero on Delphi XE2.
Although I would like to "move with the times" and am keen to get the
UNICODE and 64-bit support offered by the latest IDEs, I confess to being
more than a little scared about all the UNICODE/String/AnsiString and 32/64
bit issues I'm probably going to fall over. Anyone recently upgraded from
Delphi7 to one of the latest Delphi IDEs?

I upgraded to Delphi 2009 from D5. The install says I can install Delphi and/or C++. Delphi installed OK but I see nothing of C++. What am I missing or does my upgrade not include C++? Thanks
It depends on what you bought. If you bought Delphi 2009 only, that's
what you get. If you bought Delphi 2009 and C++ Builder 2009 you get
both. My guess is you got Delphi 2009 only. The simplest way to verify
is look your invoice - it should say I would think. You could also go to
members.embarcadero.com, login, then click on my registered products.
There will be a textual description of...Delphi 4 to Delphi 2009
Thanks to all who answered my previous question. That was a great help.
And atlast our client agreed to upgrade our delphi version from 4 to Delphi 2009. *Sigh*.
But before that, I need to give the estimation and cost regarding the migration to delphi 2009.
Can anyone tell me is there any tool to migrate from delphi 4 to delphi 2009 or just I need to compile our Delphi 4 application in Delphi 2009.
I have read from the delphi 2009 feature matrix that Delphi 1 through Delphi 2007 import is possible in delphi 2009. But i am not that sure considering the size of our application.
...Delphi and Delphi for .Net
It seems that Delphi for .Net is slower than Delphi Win32 native applicaiton.
I would like to know is it true all .Net application is slower than Win32 native applicaiton or it is Delphi for .Net only.
Your information is great appreciated,

If you are only running the code in the application once then, yes, yo...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 am about to install Delphi 2009 on the same development system
as Delphi 2007, before I embark is there anything I should be aware
of so as to not break my Delphi 2007 installation and projects ?

As long as you install into a separate folder there is no problem with
the two versions getting into each other...is there a Delphi 2007
Would be nice to have a bundle of the latest Delphi packages.

I expect Delphi 2007 will only be on sale until the full RAD Studio 2009
edition is published, including Delphi 2009.net.
...Moving from Delphi 7 to Delphi 2007
Is there any compelling reason to move (quite a large project) from
Delphi 7 to Delphi 2007?
Specifically, is there better Vista/Win7/Win8 integration provided by
Delphi 2007? (In the project I am already using a custom manifest file
for Vista/Win7 etc.. and not the std XPMan component)
Does 2007 add any new bugs to the scene?

If you are going to upgrade, why not upgrade to something newer?

it depends heavelly on how it is used fearther down in your project and
what you want to convert it to.
I you want to simple convert the declarations ignoring UNicode
altogether then the only think you have to change is the CharArray
declaratin from a Char to an AnsiChar eg
CharArrayPtr = ^CharArray;

I have just upgraded from Delphi 6 to Delphi 2009. My software uses about 20
files, plus literally dozens more plug-ins. Every project has ShareMem as
its first unit and borlndmm.dll is distributed with the software.
I am aware that the Borland Memory Manager was replaced to use FastMM quite
some time ago. Will I have to rebuild every EXE and DLL in DElphi 2009 that
uses ShareMem, or will supplying the new borlndmm.dll be enough?
i.e. I would like to just update the main application EXEs and DLLs, but
leave the plug-ins alone. Will this work?
Basically, I am moving an app from Delphi 5 to Delphi 2009 which is all great (yeah right!) and I am having a couple of issues with some thirdparty components that we have the source code for.
Being that I wanted to make the task as easy as possible, I was able to download the component in Delphi 2007 format. I have now managed to port that to 2009 so it compiles only with warnings and no errors. So all is good at this moment.
Now I am trying to install the component into the IDE by using the install menu option from the project manager. This is where I run into errors. ...Why does this work fine in Delphi 2009, but not in Delphi 2010
