Abstract: Get Delphi 7 free with purchase of the latest version of Delphi from Embarcadero
One of the common questions that we get is "I need a copy of an older version of Delphi like Delphi 7. Where can I get one?". You won't see Delphi 7 listed on our web site as a current product but you can get access to earlier version Delphi licenses and downloads when you buy the latest version.
Buy Delphi XE3 today and you get access to downloads and licenses for earlier versions of Delphi including Borland Delphi 7, Borland/CodeGear Delphi 2007, and the more recent Delphi 2009, Delphi 2010, Delphi XE and Delphi XE2 versions from Embarcadero.
This is also a great way to get licenses for new developers that you add to your team. They can use the latest version for working on new projects and also use the older versions where needed to maintain older projects without having to purchase multiple licenses per developer.
The free earlier versions match the edition of XE3 that you purchase. If you want Delphi 7 Professional, you can get that by purchasing Delphi XE3 Professional. If you want Delphi 7 Enterprise, you can purchase Delphi XE3 Enterprise, Ultimate or Architect editions.
For more information on how this works, visit the Delphi earlier versions web page at: http://www.embarcadero.com/products/delphi/previous-versions. In general, you just purchase the latest version, register it and then go to a web page to obtain your free earlier version serial numbers and downloads. If you purchase network licenses manged with the Embarcadero AppWave server, the earlier version licenses are bundled in and available automatically.
The Borland software developer tools including Borland Delphi, Borland C++Builder and JBuilder along with the InterBase database became part of Embarcadero a few years ago. Then the rest of Borland became part of Micro Focus. Delphi today is the same Delphi that you loved from Borland with lots of new functionality that has been added over the years. Develop Delphi apps for Windows 8. Create 64-bit Windows apps. Write an app once and compile it as a 32-bit Windows app, a 64-bit Windows app, and as a Mac OS X app from a single code base.
