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.

function IsDelphiRunning : boolean;
var H1,H2,H3,H4 : HWnd;
const
  A1 : array[0..12] of char = 'TApplication'#0;
  A2 : array[0..15] of char = 'TAlignPalette'#0;
  A3 : array[0..18] of Char = 'TPropertyInspector'#0;
  A4 : array[0..11] of Char = 'TAppBuilder'#0;
  T1 : array[0..8] of Char  = 'Delphi 3'#0;
begin
  H1 := FindWindow( A1,T1 );
  H2 := FindWindow( A2,nil);
  H3 := FindWindow( A3,nil );
  H4 := FindWindow( A4,nil );
  result := (H1<>0) and (H2<>0) and (H3<>0) and (H4<>0);
end;
