    Installing This Update

Delphi and C++Builder 2009 Update 2 updates the Delphi and C++Builder 2009 Database Pack.  Only database-related fixes are included in this update.  Update 1 included fixes to the rest of the product.  Update 1 must be installed separately.

Delphi and C++Builder 2009 Update 2 will uninstall the previous Database Pack that was installed and install this newer version.  The version of the database files in this update will be 3250.

This update can be applied over any of the following products:

  • Delphi 2009 or Delphi 2009 with Update 1
  • C++Builder 2009 or C++Builder 2009 with Update 1     

This update requires that Update 1 be applied in order to work properly.  If Update 1 is not installed, please do not install Update 2.  instead, install Update 1 first, and then apply Update 2.
