Delphi Install Utility
Posted on 2005-05-05
I know this isn't strictly a programming question, but it is a Delphi question...
I have to install a new hard drive and will obviously have to install XP and re-install Delphi.
The problem is that I have absolutely loads of third-party components which also have to be re-installed - along with the hassle of making sure I put them in the same place, setting all the search paths, re-organising my component palette and so on.
The point is, this is *very* time consuming and wondered if anyone knew of any way to simplify the task. There probably isn't, but if you don't ask...
What would be nice is an 'export settings' option in Delphi which exports all the program settings, components, paths and associated files.
After re-installing Delphi, you would use the 'import settings' option to load back all the settings and restore all the components, files and paths.
Wishful thinking I know, but anyone any suggestions to make the job any easier?
