By: Kris Houser

Abstract: Describes the steps in using auto update to apply Update 1

Delphi 2007 for Win32 Update1 is now available. This document describes the steps to apply Update 1 to your Delphi 2007 for Win32 by using the auto update mechanism over the Internet.

Automatic updates: When you installed Delphi 2007 for Win32, if you checked the “Automatically check for updates when RAD Studio is run,” you will be prompted when Update 1 is available (typically, you would start the following procedure at Step 4).

Update using the installation DVD: To apply Update 1 using your original installation DVD method, see the Installation notes for Delphi 2007 for Win32(Update 1)& C++Builder 2007 at http://dn.codegear.com/article/36574.

    Steps

  2. Select [Start | RAD Studio | CodeGear RAD Studio | Check for updates].
  3. The “Choose updates to download” dialog is displayed. Confirm that the correct update is selected [Delphi 2007 for Win32 Update 1] and click [Download]. Hide image

    To verify that the update was successfully applied

In the IDE, select Help>About. The version number should be 11.0.2709.7128 (changed from 11.0.2627.5503).

    If you cancel the installation of Update 1

The auto update mechanism cannot detect the need for updates if you cancel the update process or otherwise exit without success. In this case, you can download setup.exe from the registered user’s web site and execute the setup program with the /upgrade option.

Steps

  1. Go to the CodeGear registered users website:

http://www.codegear.com/downloads/regusers/delphi

  1. Click [Delphi 2007 for Win 32 Update 1].
  2. Click the FTP button for the setup.exe file.
  3. On the command line, enter:

setup /upgrade

    Note for Asian customers

If you use IME (input method editor), the installer might hang. In this case, kill the installer, open a command prompt, and re-try the process.

In order to avoid this issue, you can add following registry entry.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Console\LoadConIme

The type of this entry is REG_DWORD and the value is 0.
