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...Is possible to install delphi 7 and delphi 2009 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. We don't have time to move those projects to delphi 2009. Now, we are planning to create a new project using delphi 2009. Is it possible to install delphi 2009 in different windows profile without affecting delphi 7 projects?

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...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.

Thinking about making the conversion. Of course we have numerous components such as:
You guys have any advice as to the effort and time it may possibly take. It is a large application, several hundred thousand lines.
And that's what happens when using third party components, a lot of extra work. I have been burned a few times.
I now minimize the use to a few well known suppliers, like TMS.
I have "banned" a lot of other components.

I am currently attempting to port over a Delphi 2007 project that uses Indy 10.2.3 (very successfully) to Delphi 2009 and Indy 10.5.5 (I just got the latest development build this morning). I think I am running into an encoding issue, but am not sure. Specifically, IDHTTP with SSL calls an old CGI and the CGI returns a .zip file and I then save it to the disk. In 2007 and before this worked perfectly. In 2009, it is not. Here is the examples of the 2 different results (though cut way short in the post) I

I expect Delphi 2007 will only be on sale until the full RAD Studio 2009
edition is published, including Delphi 2009.net.

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;

Currently we are using Delphi 5 in that we have lot of source file now we planned to migrate from Delphi 5 to Delphi 2005.
My question is - 1. Is it possible to migrate directly from Delphi 5 to Delphi 2005, my old code was developed using Delphi 5 IDE. Can we able to compile and build without any issue in Delphi 2005?
2. If we can able to do then what are the ways to migrate to Delphi 2005 IDE and also provide some link regarding this migrate?

We are moving our product from D5 to D6.
I have dealt with all the deprecated functions.
However, we are getting various platform specifc warnings. 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.
