Our project re-compiled D2/D3 applications to Delphi 7 apps.  In order to do this we replaced calls to dsgnintf with designintf and designeditors and added designide.dcp as a run-time package.  First, I have been told this is illegal. is this true? If so...why? and how can we get around this.

Thanks

Sorry Proudman I'm not quite what you are looking for > I have really no idea whether its illegal and that goes for the workaround too I'm afraid. The reason I respond is that I recently began some project which involved a D4 project which I wanted to convert to D7 but I gave up trying after numerous attempts and alterations and the like. So I'm interested in what you are doing actually. I didn't think it was possible to convert the old stuff to D7 but after I read your post I'd like to dug in a little deeper and see if there's any chance my project gets his D7 coat too........Please leave me a mail in case you're willing to share some of your knowledge.......Regards Paul

Hi,

I would say that its legality depends essentially on few things:

1) What is this project for?
2) Do you own a legal copy of D7
3) Do your customers own a legal copy of D7?

HTH,

Andrew
