View Full Version : Delphi 5 Standard - Too good to be true?



09-09-2001, 09:50 PM
Has anyone tried to patch/update the Standard version of Delphi 5 that came with the NZ PC World's June 2001 CD? A patch/update is available on the Borland's website but appears to require a serial number and key to unlock the patch. It is wonderful of PC World to include this software but it is no good if you can't patch it. Pity though.

I think you will need to register with them (huge form), then they will give you a serial etc.
Thats what I had to do to get JBuilder from them.

Shhhh!! Don't tell everyone but you can get a download of Delphi 6 personal edition from the Borland site. You have to register and answer a questionaire first. make sure you have a download manager as it's a very long download, over 100Mb.
Enjoy!

Tried that but it didn't work. The registration process requires a serial number to be entered. Looks like the registration process is different. Also tried the download link for Delphi 6 Personal Edition. As part of the process, a serial number and registration key was emailed to me. It is a hugh 140MB download though (which is roughly 8+ hours on my 56K modem). Thanks for the tips though. Any further ideas - keep them coming.

Hi

When I registered my copy of Delphi 5 I was puzzled too about the registration number request on the form. Then I think I just typed 'None' in the box and it was accepted no problem :-) Try that!

Wahoo! It worked. And guess what? The patch also installed without requiring any further registration details. Thanks.
