d5 or d5 pro, that is the question...

hullo - I'm currently using D3 pro and am thinking about upgrading to D5 - there is a big dif in price between the professional & standard edition - I don't need to do any web stuff etc but does the standard edition come with a distribution prog (like installshield in D3), database dtop etc? - the inprise website is a bit unhelpful on what u actually get!  Sorry, this is a bit of a plebby question! Thanks, P.

I have found on the inprise website the list of features each one has.  Standard edition does not include the install shield you would have to buy professional for that.  Here are the links so you can see if there is any other features you might need.

Hope this helps!!!

I recommend using Professional version anyway. The biggest reason is that you get the VCL sources with the Professional version. Sometimes you need them to understand what's going on - or to look how Borland programmers solve common problems.
