Wanted: Delphi Software - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

I am looking for a used version of Borland's Delphi software. It must be either new, or have a transferrable license (no pirate versions, please). If you have an older version, like 3.0 Professional, I'm interested in that, too, since it can be used to qualify for an upgrade price on v7.0 or v8.0. Please contact me at if you are able to offer. Thanks.

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 to keep.
