Don't have Delphi here, but see if this is it....

Go to Delphi > Tools > Options... dialog, "Environment Options"/"Environment Variables" tree item.

If that's not it, right click on My Computer and go to Properties. Go to the Advanced tab and click on the Environment Variables button at the bottom. At the bottom section where it says system variables, look for Path and double click on it. See if the path is in there. If so, change it to the correct one now.

Sorry no mention of the $BDS path in either of these places. I must admit this was my first choice for looking.

well not sure, but i would guess you have to adjust the registry-key "RootDir"
at
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Borland/BDS/[AVersionNumber]/

(save your original entry before!)

meikl ;-)
