C++Builder XE2 is the current version of C++Builder. With C++Builder XE2, you also get access to licenses for older versions – C++Builder XE, C++Builder 2010, C++Builder 2009, C++Builder 2007, and C++Builder 6.
If you purchase individual named user licenses, 5-packs or 10-packs, just go to http://www.embarcadero.com/xe2-earlier-versions after you register your XE2 product serial number. You can enter your registered XE2 serial number and get serial numbers and downloads for the older versions. Those licenses will be tied to your user account and cannot be given away or sold. If your XE2 license is an upgrade, you will not receive duplicate licenses for the older version(s) you upgrade from.
You must request your older version licenses within 180 days of your purchase of the XE2 product.
If you purchase AppWave Named or AppWave Concurrent licenses, the older version licenses for versions 2007-XE will be included as part of your network license. Each network license count is a suite license that can be used to run one of the included versions at a time. C++Builder 6 is not available as part of the network licenses but on request you can receive one C++Builder 6 serial number per license purchased. The C++Builder 6 licenses cannot be managed via the license server or used concurrently.
Older versions are not included with Starter edition licenses.
The following older versions of C++Builder are also still sold separately on a limited basis. We recommend purchasing C++Builder XE2 if you need any of these older versions so you also get the latest version.
