Add Delphi to my XE7

Hello, I have C++ Builder XE7 Enterprise (I have the installation media CD). I would like to add Delphi, so that when I see examples writen in Delphi, I can run them and better work out how to adapt to my CPB projects. I am assuming I need an extension to my license, how do I go about that ? Thanks.

You don't need to install the Delphi personality in order to compile
Delphi units. C++Builder includes a Delphi compiler, and you can add
Delphi units to C++ projects.

You would need to install the Delphi personality only if you want to
open and compile Delphi projects.

I am assuming I need an extension to my license, how do I go about
that ?

Contact Embarcadero, or the seller you bought the license from.

Thanks Remy. Yes, I knew about .pas files and indeed Delphi forms but sometimes I wish I could try the complete demo the way the programmer wrote it, transferring forms across to a new CPB project can be laborious and error prone.

Actually another reason which has just arisen is to use some third party components which are not available to c++ builder - my idea was to compose the particular form in Delphi (perhaps with a very simple Delphi app to test it) then to incorporate the form into a CPB project. I don't know if that would be feasable but if I had Delphi it would be worth a try.

To be honest, I thought the 'preferred' way to contact Embacardero was using the Forum - they don't make it easy to make personal contact.

All the best, thanks again
Denville.

To compile and install Delphi components you not really need the Delphi
personality, too.

You can always run dcc32 on the dpk file manually and then add the BPL
manually to the IDE.

Problematic could be a package which consists of several dpks. Here you
have to consider the dependencies.

In general you can compile each dpk using

"<BDS>\bin\dcc32.exe" -JL -LE"<BPL_OUTPUTDIR>" -NB"<DCP_OUTPUTDIR>"
-NH"<ADDITIONAL_INCLUDEDIR>" <PACKAGE>.dpk

To be honest, I thought the 'preferred' way to contact Embacardero
was using the Forum - they don't make it easy to make personal
contact.

This forum is peer to peer only.

I am pretty sure that you will find a telephone number of your local
Embarcadero sales representative on the Embarcadero website. Make sure
to contact Embarcadero directly and not a reseller. But I am also very
sure that they will not sell any older product than 10.2 Tokyo.

Good luck.
