C++ Builder 5

I have been getting an error when trying to run a program in the IDE.  I am using Windows 2000 machine.  I click the run button (even on the default application) and get the following:

popup caption:  bcb.exe - bordbk51.dll
text:  Internal Error EVA-884

I click ok and get:
Access violation at address xxx in module bordbk51.dll.  Read of address xxx.

Even if I try to step into the project, I get nowhere.  And, like I said, I even get this on the default application.  I have Borland Delphi 5 Enterprise installed on this computer as well.  I tried uninstalling and reinstalling C++ Builder and still get the same error.  Delphi still appears to be working.  I installed in this order:

1.  installed C++ Builder 5
2.  used it with no problems
3.  installed Delphi 5
4.  used it with no problems and C++ with no problems
5.  tried to migrate a C++ Builder 3 program to C++ Builder 5
6.  C++ Builder no longer worked
7.  uninstalled C++ Builder 5
8.  reinstalled C++ Builder 5
9.  still has same error

Has anyone had this same problem?  Can I try something else?

Or, you could copy the DLL
from the CD and call regsvr32 on it.Reboot you system
This must work(i hope).

I got it working again.

I uninstalled both programs.
I installed C++ first and then Delphi as Administrator.  After each install I added registry settings only to my working account.  In retrospect, I wonder if adding the registry settings alone would have solved the problem.
