Delphi and XP user accounts
Posted on 2004-08-18
I have initially installed and registered delphi whilst being logged in as the default computer administrator user. I have since created a new user account (the one I'll be using in future). When I log in using the new user name, my delphi software is no longer registered. I get a dialog box saying the "Borland licenses information for Delphi does not yet exist.", after which I have the option of registering the software again. I want to try and avoid registering again as I think there is a limit of how many times you may register (5 I think).
I looked in the user directory and the registry information to see if there isn't a quick-fix for this (e.g. copy a file or reg value to the new user dir) but no luck so far.
Surely one must be able to change your user account without having to re-register the software. The following extract from the install.txt file supports this presumption: "The new installation procedure no longer requires each user to install Delphi 7 separately."
Any thoughts and/or ideas will be appreciated.
