Delphi 5 Upgrade to Delphi 7

Hi,
I am looking to upgrade from Delphi 5 to 7.
Will there be any problems opening and compiling previous applications written in Delphi 5?
I have a few applications that use DBGrid and Quick Reports, everything else is standard components.
If there is likely to be problems would it be possible to install both Delph 5 and 7 on the same active partition?

Thanks in advance
Steve

May be you will be surprised after installing the Delphi 7 when you don't see Quick Report's tab in the Component's palette .... But don't worry - it's there, just it is not installed by default ....
Read $Delphi\Demos\Quickrpt\QReport_README.txt
I don't think you will have > any problems opening and compiling previous applications written in Delphi 5
(I had not problems with Delphi 6 opening and compiling previous applications written in Delphi 5)
(I had not problems with Delphi 7 opening and compiling previous applications written in Delphi 6)
I don't know will there any problems in the Windows registry if you > install both Delph 5 and 7 on the same active partition
I have 5 partitions on my HDDs so I never install two or more Delphi versions on a single partition ....
Anyway you may compress (.cab, .rar, .zip) and save your Delphi 5 projects on a CD-ROM, so you keep them from any imaginary problems ....

Thanks esoftbg....the points are yours.
You say to look at  $Delphi\Demos\Quickrpt\QReport_README.txt to install QReport tab.
Where am I looking on the disk, or in the Delphi 7 folder when its installed?

Thanks Steve

$Delphi\Demos\Quickrpt\QReport_README.txt
$Delphi is the directory you have Delphi 7 installed for example:
  C:\Program Files\Borland\Delphi7
but it could be:
  D:\Program Files\Borland\Delphi7
or different (according of your choice during the installation)

Good luck,
Emil
