Abstract: Installation Notes for Delphi® 2007 for Win32® (Update 1) and C++Builder® 2007
For additional information about installing the product, see the
Installation FAQ on the CodeGear Developer Network.
NOTE: Installing the English version of the product updates Internet
Explorer with the English version of Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1. If you
are running a localized operating system, run Windows Update to ensure
that you get the proper localized version of Internet Explorer.
The RAD Studio installation DVD contains C++Builder 2007 as well as Update 1 of
Delphi 2007 for Win32. You can use the installation DVD to:
For Windows Vista, you must run as Administrator or be on the Administrator list to
install the product.
The product can be installed by any licensed user with administrator privileges,
and is immediately available to all licensed users of the same machine.
It is also available to any licensed users you might add later.
You are prompted to reboot your system at the end of the installation
if the installer updated to Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1, or if the
Microsoft .NET Framework v2.0 or MDAC 2.8 were installed from the installer setup.
If the drive containing the folder specified in your TEMP environment variable
is low on space, the Installer might halt with an error message noting the shortage.
If this occurs, you'll need to assign your TEMP variable to a folder on a drive
with more disk space, then rerun the installation.
See Minimum System Requirements for exact specification.
Duplicate copies of assemblies installed in the GAC are provided in the
<CommonFilesFolder>\CodeGear Shared\RAD Studio\Shared Assemblies\5.0 directory. If C:\ is your Windows drive, the
default <CommonFilesFolder> is C:\Program Files\Common Files\.
To verify that your update has been installed, check the version number in the About box.
The file timestamp is 11:00.
The only way to remove the update is to uninstall the product.
This update can be applied to all language editions.
See the README.HTM file for additional information about the product.
Use the appropriate procedure described below.
If the product is purchased via Electronic Software Delivery, you receive a setup.exe file.
You are asked to supply an archive location for the install ZIP files.
Note: Backing up the downloaded ZIP files is strongly
encouraged so that in the future you can do a reinstall without downloading all the ZIP files again.
If you have installed C++Builder 2007 or Delphi 2007 for Win32 Update 1, and you want to install the
second product but you do not have an installation DVD, you can run a secondary or Maintenance install,
which is equivalent to running setup.exe from the DVD. Use the following steps:
If you have Delphi 2007 for Win32 and you want to upgrade to Delphi 2007 for Win32 Update 1:
Note: Due to the MSI registration and unregistration that take place, this upgrade
process might take an hour or two hours. If you have problems with the download,
you can restart the install by running setup.exe /upgrade, and the
install attempts to start from where it ended.
Rave Reports offers a powerful suite of Win32 components that
simplify the task of creating professional reports. The final screen of
the installer includes a checkbox where you can select or deselect the
option to run the Rave Reports installer. If you want to install Rave
later, the install file is located in the \Rave directory on the
installation DVD or available for download from the Delphi 2007 for
Win32 and C++Builder 2007 Registered Users pages on http://www.codegear.com.
