:x get it from their web site in Scotts Valley
and talk to them. Its better than Microsoft.
Yeah, I could download a demo from the Borland
website, but it's only good for 30 days. A new version
of Delphi starts at $1000, so I'm looking for a
legal qualifying older version (3.0 Professional
or newer) that I can use to get the upgrade price
(around $450). v3.0 through v5.0 comes up on e-bay
frequently for somewhere in the $150-$300 range,
which combined with an upgrade price would be a
significant savings over just buying a new copy.
The Delphi Personal Edition sells for around
$100, but Borland will not allow anything developed
with it to be distributed - even for free! At least
MS allows distribution of software created with
it's equivalent low-end VB.NET software; I'm not
sure why Borland has adopted the policy it has.
So, since the tone of your post seemed to imply
that I am looking for an illegal copy of Delphi
(including the frowning face), even though I explicitly
mention no pirated copies, I hope this clears it
up. I have and use zero (0) illegal software of
any sort, and pay the requested fees to creators
of Shareware that I end up finding useful enough
