I just upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and when starting the venerable Delphi 2007 I received this error:
External exception 80000003
I have to maintain a legacy project not to be ported to the new version of Delphi.
Any help will be appreciated.
Best Regards

I applied IDE Fix Pack 3.0 for RAD Studio 2007 and D2007 starts, but when I open a project,can't open $(MSBuildBinPath)\Borland.Delphi.Targets
in C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\...\Borland.Delphi.Targets
More on that later...

Now I just copied from my backup these files:
Borland.Common.Targets, Borland.Cpp.Targets, Borland.Delphi.Targets and Borland.Group.Targets
to this folder:
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727
Now I can open my project and run a syntax check without errors.
Still doing some test, I'll keep you posted.

For what it's worth, I strongly recommend using a virtual machine for maintaining legacy projects.
