Is there any place to download this update? I can't believe that my only option is to get it on CD from Borland for $15 shipping and handling. Do we have to start paying for bug fixes too?
Thanks

That page only has Delphi 3 Standard Maintenance Release 2.

This patch is intended for use with the Standard version of the the Delphi 3 update (Maintenance Release 1). Do not attempt to use this patch with another version. If you do not have the Delphi 3 update, contact Borland Customer Service to order the Delphi 3 update (Maintenance Release 1). You can contact Customer Service via email.

$15 and a 2 week wait just to get bug fixes =/

There is no other way of getting the Maintenance Release 1, other than to buy it from Borland, or a local supplier of Borland products.  I just hope they send you the right one, I ordered the Client/Server update and they sent the Professional one.  They had to get a courier to collect it personally before they would send out the Client/Server version!  Once you have MR1, download MR2 from the website.  Ever since I upgraded, I keep getting errors in OLEAUT32.DLL whenever I use OLE automation, so I downgraded back to version 3.0.  I personally don't think the upgrade is worth it.

Ok I was afraid of that. I guess I'll hold off on updating..... No point in wasting my time to get a bug fix that causes more bugs ;)
thanks again
