Sorry Borrt, but I don't understand what you are trying to say. First of all, which Delphi version are you talking about? Secondly, why is it important for you to care about Delphi32.cfg?

Ciao, Mike
The dsk file contains all the desktop settings for the Delphi IDE (the position and layout of all your delphi windows and which files you have open) so if you have the environment setting to auto-save desktop the dsk file will get updated when you close a project or close delphi.  This is irrespective of whether you actually save any program files or not.

The desktop setting is restored when you reopen that project.

The file is actually <project_name>.dsk and exists per project.  They do not affect compilation in any way and can be safely deleted to restore default desktop settings for the project.

Hi rb75,

welcome to experts-echange! Although you gave some important information you should consider using comments first instead of answers. The questioneer can finally pick the comment (s)he considers as the best one and a question which has been locked doesn't appear any longer in the listing for open questions and may therefor be overseen by other experts which would propably give other important facts.

Thank you and

Ciao, Mike

cool   tah for that !!!!
This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.
