Yes

Look in the registry under the Borland hive.

Thanks, It will end up being a reinstall. I accidsentally hit the uninstall button. I thought that I had caught it soon enough, but too many components have been removed.

Did you get the trial from the Embarcadero website? If so, they should
send you an email with a trial registration number.

Have you looked in your SPAM filter?

Delphi 6 is very old so it is unlikely anybody would know about this.
Perhaps some MVP would know this because they have access to all the
different versions.

Your best bet is to download a free Starter Editions of Delphi and C++
and start again using these two applications.

I think the current starter editions are likely to be as good as your
old Delphi 6.

The alternative is to start using something else; As Bjarne Stroustrup
said it is unprofessional to know only one language; You should try to
learn at least 5 different languages!!!;

For Windows App it is all Drag and Drop these days so don't see how can
you be "mediocre at all of them"!! Are you suffering from shaky hands
when working with mouse? in XAML you can copy and paste the code after
you have dragged the buttons or some other items to place them exactly
where you want them to be. That's the beauty of XAML when working on WPF.

I don't think he was referring to anyone's ability to produce pretty pictures more could they produce useful , performant and robust code.

It looks good on a resume because in the world today you need multiple languages to get things done. In addition it shows that the applicant continues to learn and isn't letting their tech skills stagnate - also, that they're curious. Multiple languages teach you different ways of thinking about a programming problem.

http://www.drdobbs.com/mobile/the-quiet-revolution-in-programming/240152206

Multiple programming paradigms are changing simultaneously: the ubiquity of mobile apps; the enormous rise of HTML and JavaScript front-ends; and the advent of big data.

The greatest effect these changes have had on software development is the requirement of multiple languages. Web apps, by definition, are multilanguage beasts. Many mobile apps require more than one language; and even if they can be written in one
language, they often rely on a Web- or cloud-based back-end that's written in an entirely different language. And, of course, big data is written using all forms of specialized languages. We have had to become polyglots to develop almost any current
application....
Note the ... mostly sub-2% numbers for programmers coding more than 50% of the time in one language. I expect, after some reflection, that most readers will find this chart unexceptional. Most developers work in two or more languages....
Two years ago, fully one-quarter of programmers wrote in just one language, and half wrote in only two languages. Today, such conservative use of languages looks like a luxury.
Even though these charts show only major languages, I believe a secondary development will reinforce the trend; namely, the use of embedded scripting languages. They have already become standard practice in game development, where Lua is
frequently embedded for scripting UI components in C and C++ codebases. In Java, the proliferation of JSR-223 scripting engines that are callable from within Java applications foreshadows more of this activity on servers and desktops.

In the world today, and every day, you need what you need. For some
jobs, you need more than one language. For others, you don't.

What jobs only need one language today? From the 2016 Stack Overflow survey results: "The average developer regularly uses between 4 and 5 major programming languages, frameworks and technologies. The most common 2-technology combination is JavaScript & SQL. The most common 3-tech combination is JavaScript, PHP, and SQL."

Average. That means some use more, some use less. I take it you are
average. So be it.

Ok, I'll give up trying to have an honest discussion with you.

JS is viable as a single language. you can build web/desktop front
ends, web back ends, and native mobile apps in it. Is it as good as the
other options? maybe not. but, good enough.
