I have updated my laptop but cannot find delphi 6 personal.  I know Borland no longer have it for download but I would like to know if anyone does have the setup file or can direct me to where I can find it.  I love this version and am in the middle of a project.

As far as I know, Turbo Delphi and Delphi Personal 7 are both free as well and should be mostly (if not fully) compatible with Delphi 6..

Unfortunately the prerequisites page that opens when you try to install it have links to microsoft .NET Frameworks etc... that all don't work.  The link for each one of the 6 prerequisites to install first is

Even though I'm logged in to Borland it comes up with page not found error (the usual IE error when a site or link is not valid)

Although I would prefer to use version 6 personal edition, I can't seem to find it.  However, Turbo Delphi is the next best thing so I will use it untill I find my disk with 6 on it.  I like 6 as it opens quickly and does not require all the .net bullshit.

Thanks
