Need to make app work just on one specific PC

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Pascal/Delphi/Q_26803051.html
This post is based on post above.

Now i need to write data into text file also and store it as a string that it would be as standard for all  kind of PC-s
I have idea do develop project in  more phases.  Step by step post by post.
1. read HW
2. encrypt
3. de-encrypt
4. compareHW
5. compare date
6. singing alelluia


procedure tform2.getHW();
       const
  Subkey: string = 'Hardware\description\system';
var
  hkSB: HKEY;
  rType: LongInt;
  ValueSize, OrigSize: Longint;
  ValueBuf: array[0..1000] of char;
str:string;


  procedure ParseValueBuf(const VersionType: string);
  var
    I, Line: Cardinal;
    S: string;
  begin
    i := 0;
    Line := 0;
    while ValueBuf[i] <> #0 do
    begin
      S := StrPas(@ValueBuf[i]);
      Inc(Line);
      Memo1.Lines.Append(Format('%s Line %d = %s',
        [VersionType, Line, S]));
      inc(i, Length(S) + 1);
    end
  end;


begin
  if RegOpenKeyEx(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, PChar(Subkey), 0,
                  KEY_READ, hkSB) = ERROR_SUCCESS then
  try
    OrigSize := sizeof(ValueBuf);
    ValueSize := OrigSize;
    rType := REG_MULTI_SZ;
    if RegQueryValueEx(hkSB, 'SystemBiosVersion', nil, @rType,
      @ValueBuf, @ValueSize) = ERROR_SUCCESS then
      ParseValueBuf('System BIOS Version');

    ValueSize := OrigSize;
    rType := REG_SZ;
    if RegQueryValueEx(hkSB, 'SystemBIOSDate', nil, @rType,
      @ValueBuf, @ValueSize) = ERROR_SUCCESS then
      Memo1.Lines.Append('System BIOS Date ' + ValueBuf);

    ValueSize := OrigSize;
    rType := REG_MULTI_SZ;
    if RegQueryValueEx(hkSB, 'VideoBiosVersion', nil, @rType,
      @ValueBuf, @ValueSize) = ERROR_SUCCESS then
      ParseValueBuf('Video BIOS Version');

    ValueSize := OrigSize;
    rType := REG_SZ;
    if RegQueryValueEx(hkSB, 'VideoBIOSDate', nil, @rType,
      @ValueBuf, @ValueSize) = ERROR_SUCCESS then
      Memo1.Lines.Append('Video BIOS Date ' + ValueBuf);
       // Str := DateToStr(Now)  ;
        //Memo1.Lines.Append(str);


  finally
    RegCloseKey(hkSB);
  end;
end;

 procedure  tform2.comparedateum();
 var
 str:string;
 inte:integer;

 begin
 {Str := DateToStr(Now) ;
  edit1.text:=str;}


 end;

[Pascal Error] mxProtectorAbout.pas(88): E2029 Expression expected but ';' found

I have Turbo Delphi version from 2006.
Any way to  proceed?
With Tfrm_AboutBox.Create( Application ) Do
     Try
          Lbl_ComponentName.Caption := ComponentName;

          Lbl_Delphi.Caption := 'Compiled in ' +

{$IFDEF VER80} 'Delphi 1.0'{$ENDIF}
{$IFDEF VER90} 'Delphi 2.0'{$ENDIF}

No pozitive result.
 Does exist some procedure to get "my"
{$IFDEF VER180} ????????????{$ENDIF} ;
?

How about don't get the version, just let it go.
Lbl_Delphi.Caption := 'Compiled in DONT KNOW VERSION';

I do get other errors so i believe thatis beter to give up.

Oh, men, try to use Delphi from Embarcadero, not from Old CodeGear.
Next time, do not accept if you haven't got what you wanted too, there are experts here listening, I don't they are not commenting, but they will soon, as long as you don't.

try to search google;
Delphi.7.Second.Edition.v7.2 Lite
you will find that, it's only 42mb size, you can try if the component really work.

or
anyway your code does great, use it and find anything that is useful to your code then attach it.


thanks

I have got:
Delphi.7.Second.Edition.v7.2 Lite
and i have compiled and installated  new component from Your link  in it.
Now am researching it. And i see that it has many option of protection and sure they are much better than i can built as beginner.
I believe that i will open son new topic about use of  it.

Thank you very much.
