Need to buy Delphi6 Professional (or better)

Hello!

I urgently need to buy Delphi6 Professional or better. Has anyone a version that he no longer needs?

The background story is, that I need to build BPL files that will be used with C-Builder 6 by a customer. I cannot change the compiler on the customers side and I am required to fullfill their demands. I have D3, D5, D7, D8 at hand, but it seems there is no way of purchasing D6 anywhere on the net.

I am NOT looking for a black market copy!

Thanks, Roadrunner (from Germany)

Actually, unless people have stopped using Delphi altogether, everyone here will need their D6 copy if they used it to upgrade to a newer Delphi version. If they would sell you their old D6 copy then they would also have to give you all upgrades that they bought afterwards.
Then again, since you yourself have a D7 copy, you should be eligible for a D6 version too. You might want to contact Borland about that.

One other point... If that customer can provide you a copy of CBuilder 6 then you can use it to compile your Delphi project with! CBuilder can handle Delphi projects. It would provide you the proper compiler version. :-)

I have once tried to contact Borland for another D7 licence after D8 was already published. That was not the nicest of experiences, but if everything else fails, I will try that as well.

I just hope there is someone here, who as quit delphi or has reduced staff and therefore has a surplus licence.

BTW: The customer has switched from CB5 to CB6 without telling us in advance and now we have to somehow continue developing. The problem is of course debugging of the code - the final product is entirely build at our customer with his compiler.

I was indeed able to buy the very last copy of D6P from Borland Gemany. The compiler works just fine with my application and after a long, hard time I can even debug my code completely and not just a part of it. Hurray!

Points to Workshop_Alex for the idea to contact Borland.

Thanks, Roadrunner
