Best operating system to operate with Delphi 6 / Is Windows 7 an option?
Posted on 2013-07-01
I have installed Delphi 6 on Windows 7 using the traditional directory structure of C:\Programs\Borland... However, I'm not sure whether I should stick with this from the standpoint of system stability. I used this directory structure to disable the UAC's influence. I don't think this will impact stability as much as I'm concerned with registry keys.
Does anyone have experience installing Delphi 6 on Windows 7? What operating system is typically used for running Delphi 6. I would imagine a server, no? From what I've read, Windows 98 or XP seem to be the preferred platforms.
Bottom line, I want to be able to step through legacy code to understand it before writing the C# version of the same project. Is the best scenario arguably a Virtual Machine (seeing I don't have a 98 or XP machine)?
