Question about Delphi 2009 vs Delphi 7
I was wondering if any of you can point me to a URLs that show the most
important improvements between these versions of Delphi.
The objective is convincing the powers-that-pay-the-bills that moving to
D2009 (that we'd have to purchase) is a better idea than moving to D7 (for
which we have licenses).
Fire at will!

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 5 To Delphi 2009
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.

I've been using Delphi 2006 for a while and have never really felt the need to upgrade to a newer release given the expense. I'm looking at taking over on a project from someone else who developed it in Delphi 2009. The only code incompatibilities he can think of is some of the Unicode changes that were introduced after D2006 but that should be fairly easy to fix. My main concern is whether or not a project that was created in Delphi 2009 can even be *opened* in Delphi 2006. I don't know how file exte
nsions or formats have changed between the two versions. Can anyone give me...Re: Where is data form wizard in Delphi 2009? [pubic.delphi.ide]

...vcljpg to vclimg, packages and Delphi 2006 vs Delphi 2010 compatibility
I have a package A which has vcljpg in its "requires" clause. I have
another several packages B, C, D, E, etc which has A in theirs
"requires" clauses. All packages are both Delphi 2006 and Delphi 2010
compatible. The problem is that there is no vcljpg package in Delphi
2010 and in order to compile the whole bunch of packages I have to
change vcljpg to vclimg and compile. Unfortunately it renders the whole
set of packages incompilable under Delphi 2006.
Is there a way to create an alias for vclimg or vcljpg in order to get
the same code...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,

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'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?

is there any option to make delphi 2006 code work in delphi 2010? something like in java IDEs where you can define the code level you like to use?
the problem is, that i made a project with 2006 and sent it to my customer. they got 2010 and it compiles fine, but it just doesn't work. it deals with en-/decryption of text, we assumed, that it has something to do with ansi vs. unicode strings... but we cant find the exact position where the error occurs.
i am a bit dissapointed, because everywhere i read that the new IDE will always be downwards compatible and so on.. but in ...is there a Delphi 2007

I expect Delphi 2007 will only be on sale until the full RAD Studio 2009

Apologies if this question has been asked and answered elsewhere, but I recently got an email informing me support for Delphi 2006 was going to be dropped. I have mostly converted to Delphi 2009 now, but I'll still be able to activate my copy of 2006 on any future installation right?
