Converting existing applications from Delphi 5 to Delphi 2009
Posted on 2009-02-11
I have been using Delphi 5 for many years. I stuck with it because it worked pretty well and also because my company bought several libraries for it which I have used in my programs. So I was rather locked in. However they have now bought Delphi 2009 (still unused) which leads to a question for the Delphi experts.
What are the main hurdles I will face if I want to convert my Delphi 5 applications to run on Delphi 2009 (ignoring my 3rd Party libraries. Some are no longer supported, some can be upgraded).
Does anyone know of any good upgrade guides around to guide me by someone who has already taken this path!
Note: I have no experience at all on anything later than Delphi 5!
