Does anyone have the source code for delphi to make an application think that delphi is running ?

Sounds like you're trying to use a disabled sharewhere component in a completed application. Why not pay the money like everyone else does?

I think so you need this for protecting you'r program:

Many components do this with checking if exist window of given name (ObjectInspector and others). I don't remember this names, but i think so i find this tomorrow if you tell me what version of delphi you use.

When You can't find window with this name then program is runnig without Delphi.
