Abstract: Latest updated version of the installation instructions for Delphi and C++Builder 2010
Prerequisites: The product requires a number of prerequisites including the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 SP1 Redistributable Package, Microsoft Visual J# version 2.0 Redistributable Package, Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 2.8, Microsoft Core XML Services (MSXML) 6.0, and the Language Pack for MS .NET Framework 2.0. The prerequisites are automatically installed on your system during the install process if they are not already present. If you do not have the Microsoft .NET Framework on your system, then the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 will be installed with the product.
The Delphi and C+Builder 2010 installer can be used to install Delphi 2010 and/or C+Builder 2010 as well as additional software.
See Installing Optional, Add-on Products for information on the additional software.
The serial number you enter determines which product (Delphi, C++Builder or a bundle of the two) which edition (Professional, Enterprise or Architect) and which type of license (commercial, academic or trial) will be installed.
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.
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\7.0 directory. If C:\ is your Windows drive, the default <CommonFilesFolder> is C:\Program Files\Common Files\.
Don't use double-byte characters in the path or directory for installation. Delphi and C++Builder 2010 are Unicode-enabled, but the installer has not been enabled for Unicode.
If the product is purchased using Electronic Software Delivery, you receive a .zip 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 purchased Networked Licenses (managed by the Embarcadero License Server or FLEX) for Delphi 2010 or C++Builder 2010, you must follow these instructions to set up the install image or your users will be prompted for a serial number and be unable to install.
