Abstract: An update for Delphi 6 is now available for download from the registered users web site

BEFORE YOU INSTALL
This Update Pack includes all of the files that were
included in the previous RTL Update Pack. However, it
is highly recommended that you install the
Delphi 6 Update 2 prior to installing this update.
ISSUES ADDRESSED IN THIS UPDATE PACK
This Update Pack resolves run-time errors with certain
variant operations on Windows 95/98/NT4 systems that have
original (unpatched) versions of DCOM.
This Update Pack also resolves a problem with Delphi 6 that
could produce deadlock. Typically, this would happen in a
web application when many web modules were being created
due to a heavy load. Once this occurred, the web application
would stop responding to further requests and the CPU
utilization would typically reach 100%. This update
corrects the problem.
FILES INSTALLED BY THIS UPDATE PACK
This self-extracting, self-executing Update Pack refreshes
the following files* in your current Delphi 6 installation:
* Note: Not all files listed above are available in all
editions of Delphi 6.
