Hi experts,

will there be problems with my projects which I created with Delphi 4, if I update toDelphi 6. Will for example Delphi 6 recognize the old *.dpr files?
Are there any known problems which might occur if I update?

Well one thing you might keep in mind is the difference in the
right to distribute your applications... D4 allows for commercial
distribution of your work... I have heard that D6 standard (99$)
has restrictions on this :-(

Hi kretzschmar :-)
  That's what I have heard... I wish someone would
come forward and tell me I heard wrong... I'd like
to get D6 standard....

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

yep it seems to be true,i downloaded the feature matrix a few weeks ago and on the very last line of the feature matrix it says:
"Commercial development license for professional software sales "

and only Enterprise and Proffesional are ticked not personal edition ..

so its pay either $399.00 to Upgrade from any Borland Delphi Professional Product or for a New User $999.00 !

my conclusion is this must be regathering development costs spent on kylix and d6 last year ;-)

If I was sure you could distribute non-commercial
freeware with D6 standard I think I would buy it...
distributing freeware is really all I'm interested
in anyway.... anyone see anything one way or another
re freeware and D6 standard?

I also read that you cant sell your works made with D6 Standard, but I dont recall seeing anything about freeware.  I dont see why they would care since its not like we are making a profit by using their cheepie edition.  But whether they do or dont care, I plan on distributing my freeware either way :-)
