Abstract: Installation instructions for RAD Studio 2007

  • These notes provide important information about installing the product, and it is recommended that you read this file in its entirety before starting an uninstall or an install procedure. This document uses the term 'the product' to describe RAD Studio 2007, or Delphi 2007 for Win32 (Update 3), or C++Builder 2007 (Update 3).
  • For an updated version of these Installation Notes, see the CodeGear Developer Network (
  • For additional information about installing the product, see:
    • The Release Notes (README.htm), available on the installation DVD or on the CodeGear Developer Network at (

If you registered Delphi 2007 R2 or RAD Studio 2007 you do not need and will not be able to download this update. Download this file to an empty directory on your computer and run CodeGearRADStudio2007Setup.exe /upgrade. The installation notes say 'Delphi 2007 for Win32 (Update 3). Other than that, I am not sure how to find out what update I have since I can't find the release notes or other references to the version.

General Installation Notes


The RAD Studio 2007 installation DVD contains C++Builder 2007 with Update 3 as well as Delphi 2007 for Win32 with Update 3. You can use the installation DVD to:

  • Install products:
    • Delphi 2007 for Win32, Update 3
    • C++Builder 2007, Update 3
    • RAD Studio (containing three personalities: Delphi for Win32, Delphi for .NET, and C++)
  • Upgrade an installation of:
    • Delphi 2007 for Win32 to Update 3
    • C++Buildler 2007 to Update 3

On Windows VistaTM, must install as Administrator

For Windows Vista, you must run as Administrator or be on the Administrator list to install the product.

New installer, no bootstrap utility

Previous versions of Borland Developer Studio and Delphi included a bootstrap utility that checked for the presence of prerequisite software and installed it as necessary before the main product install started. Installation is now done by InstallAware, and there is no separate bootstrap utility; all is done within the new installer.

Multiple users on one machine

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.

Installer might require a reboot

You are prompted to reboot your system at the end of the installation if the installer updated to Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1, or if MDAC 2.8 was installed from the installer setup.

Installer requires additional temporary space

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.

Assemblies installed in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC)

Duplicate copies of assemblies installed in the GAC are provided in the <CommonFilesFolder>CodeGear SharedRAD StudioShared Assemblies5.0 directory. If C: is your Windows drive, the default <CommonFilesFolder> is C:Program FilesCommon Files.

Verifying Installation of Update 3 for Either Delphi 2007 for Win32 or C++Builder 2007

To verify that your update has been installed, check the version number in the About box. The file timestamp is 11:03.

The only way to remove the update is to uninstall the product.

This update can be applied to all language editions.

Additional information

See the README.htm file for additional information about the product.

Installing the Product Using the Installation DVD: RAD Studio 2007, Delphi 2007 for Win32 (Update 3) or C++Builder 2007 (Update 3)

To install any product:
  1. Insert the installation DVD; this should auto-run the installer. If this does not happen, run Setup.exe from the install directory.
  2. When prompted, enter the serial number (license key) for the product.
  3. If you are prompted to select from Setup Personalities, select the product you want to install.

Upgrading Delphi 2007 for Win32 or C++Builder 2007 Using the Installation DVD

If you have the original release of Delphi 2007 for Win32 or C++Builder 2007 on your system, you can upgrade to the latest binaries by using the installation DVD. (See later section about electronic delivery for alternate media.) Setup.exe detects the earlier versions of Delphi 2007 or C++Builder on your system and uninstalls the previous version and then installs either Delphi 2007 for Win32 or C++Builder.

To upgrade Delphi 2007 for Win32 or C++Builder 2007 to Update 3 on a system that already contains Delphi 2007 for Win32 or C++Builder 2007:

  • Using the installation DVD, run installsetup.exe with the /upgrade switch. The /upgrade switch means that the installer displays fewer dialogs and installs the same edition of Delphi 2007 for Win32 or C++Builder 2007 that was previously on your system.

Upgrading to CodeGear RAD Studio from Delphi 2007 R2 for Win32 or C++Builder 2007 R2

If you are upgrading to CodeGear RAD Studio from Delphi 2007 R2 for Win32 or C++Builder 2007 R2, you must uninstall Delphi 2007 R2 or C++Builder 2007 R2 prior to installing CodeGear RAD Studio. If you upgrade using a RAD Studio serial number without uninstalling the single personality first, the other product personalities will be installed but additional software such as ECO, Demeanor and Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX Extensions will not be installed.

Installing Using Electronic Software Delivery

If the product is purchased using Electronic Software Delivery, you receive a Setup.exe file.

To install using Electronic Software Delivery:

  1. Double-click the Setup.exe file to start the installation.
  2. When prompted, enter your serial number (license key).
  3. All the required ZIP files are downloaded from the Internet and uncompressed.
  4. 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.

  5. The install proceeds automatically.

Upgrading Delphi 2007 for Win32 or C++Builder 2007 Using Electronic Software Delivery

If you have Delphi 2007 for Win32 or C++Builder 2007 and you want to upgrade to Update 3 of either Delphi 2007 for Win32 or C++Builder 2007:

  1. Select Start Programs CodeGear RAD Studio Check for updates.
  2. In the list of available updates, select Update 3.
  3. Your current Delphi 2007 for Win32 installation is uninstalled, and then the required files are downloaded and installed automatically.

Note: Due to the MSI registration and unregistration that take place, this upgradeprocess might take an hour or two hours. If you have problems with the download, you can restart the install by running setup.exe /upgrade, and the install attempts to start from where it ended.

Installing and Using Purchased Network Licenses

If you purchased Networked Licenses (managed by the Borland License Server or FLEXlm) for RAD Studio 2007, Delphi 2007 for Win32 or C++Builder 2007, 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.
  1. Copy all the files from your media kit DVD to a writeable directory on your network.
  2. Copy the networked license .slip file (received in your order confirmation email) to the Install directory where Setup.exe is located.
  3. When your users run Setup.exe, the product detects the .slip file and installs the software. During installation, the .slip file is moved to the license folder in the installation directory.

Modifying the Installed Product

  • After the product is installed, you can add optional products,and/or add/remove features. Choose either method to modify the installed product:
    • Use the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs command, select the Modify button, and then choose the features that you want to add or remove.
    • Choose Start menu Programs CodeGear RAD Studio Modify, Repair, Uninstall, select Modify, and then choose features to add or remove.
  • See also Known Installation Issues.

To install another product:

If you have installed C++Builder 2007 or Delphi 2007 for Win32, and you want to install another product or update from RAD Studio, use the following steps:

  1. From the installation DVD, run Setup.exe from the install directory.
  2. In the Maintenance dialog, choose to Upgrade your current installation.
  3. Enter the new serial number (license key) for the additional product.
