Trying to install RAD Studio 2007 but getting only Delphi 2007...

I am reorganizing my development tools when retiring my old laptop and
want to keep older development tools as virtualized machines with the
corresponding environment, like Windows7 etc.

So now I installed RAD Studio 2007 XE5 and XE7 and all looked good
during installation, but when it was done and I looked in the Start
Menu I cannot find a shortcut to either C++Builder 2006 or RAD Studio
2006, only Delphi 2006.
All others show up with all components.

I had checked all RAD Studio components and proceeded with the
installation.

On my old laptop which I am moving out of I did not have this problem,
the shortcuts for all components are there all right.

Please advice what to do? (If there is still someone here that knows
about these old tools).

Well, either you didn't actually enable the C++ personality during
installation, or the installer goofed. Either way, you could just
create your own shortcuts and see what happens.

Running bds.exe without any command-line parameters will load all
installed personalites. Check if C++ is getting loaded.

Running bds.exe with the "-pDelphi" command-line parameter will load
the IDE with only the Delphi personality loaded.

Running bds.exe with the "-pCBuilder" command-line parameter will load
the IDE with only the C++ personality loaded.

Thanks, but I created a copy of the shortcut and edited the start
parameters to be -pCbuilder. Nothing happens when I start it.
Then I removed the parameter altogether and this time Delphi started,
not RAD Studio.

And first I hit on the old chum I had forgotten all about, the need for
using the dzEditorLineEndsFix.exe...

Can I repair the installation by running it again?

Well, I tried running the installer again and this time there was an
option to upgrade, i.e. I could enter a separate license I had for
C++Builder and continue.
This solved the problem and now the Start Menu folder has new entries
for C++Builder 2007 and RAD 2007.

There is a trick to enter more than one serial number in the installer so you do not have to use the upgrade option:
First you must enter one of the serial numbers and press the "Next" button; then you go back by pressing the "Previous"
button and then you must enter the other serial number.

Interesting, I was wondering why my product keys for some products were
split in two in my list of keys.
For the new products XE-XE7 I have one key for RAD studio but for the
earlier ones there is one key for Delphi and anoher for C++Builder.
In fact for 2010-XE2 I have all three keys...

Strange, and thanks for the tip!

No, running it wihout the parameter loads the full Studio, but clearly
you DO NOT have the C++ personality installed correctly, so the full
Studio loads only the Delphi personality.

for using the dzEditorLineEndsFix.exe...

Never heard of it before.

Never heard of it before.

It concerns Delphi 2007-2010 in Windows with KB2982791 installed.
It is described here:
http://edn.embarcadero.com/article/44076
and here:
https://community.embarcadero.com/index.php/answers/delphi-2007-and-2010-have-new-loading-problem

On my laptop I downloaded the countermeasure from sourceforge and put a
shortcut into the Startup folder so it runs on login and was never
bothered again.
It can be found here:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/dzeditorlineendsfix/

So I forgot (almost) about it until yesterday when I reinstalled
RAD2007 into a virtual Windows7 computer and it struck again...
