    Delphi 7 + Vista

    Hello... PGD guy's

    I got rid of my W98 PC and now i'm sitting behind a dual-core vista PC with DX 10 compatible graphics card. yay

    But when i started Delphi 7, vista complained about incompatibilities with the current OS. :?
    Has anyone expirience with D7 under vista?? is it stable or should i use a newer version??

    Thanks in advance.

    Delphi 7 will not work with Vista. I also tried for a while. Then found that the official statement from Borland is that it won't work.

    However, what you may want to try is install Delphi outside of program files.
    The problem is that Delphi 7 is unable to change files with the program files tree.

    I didn't bother to try and instead installed Delphi 2006 and now just purchased and installed Delphi 2007.

    I have just tried installing Delphi 7 onto Windows Vista and it seems to work after changing the access to the folder. I did have to run Delphi 7 once in administrator mode -presumably to set up registry keys.

    I use Win XP myself, made small game with it that i wanted others to test. Now my friend has Vista with latest service pack and always gets error that the exe is potentially harmful and does not open. He has admin permission for user as the only account on computer and tried to unblock best way he could.

    What can i do to make file not seem harmful? Does exe need to have author details etc which i don't have, possibly some/any other files in directory to look less suspicious than single stand alone exe?

    Are you sure its a Vista related warning? It might also be that a different program such as a virus scanner is throwing the warning.

    If you want to I can test it for you as well, as I too use Vista.
    I've never had any such warnings myself in any case.

    He said that his virus scanner said the file as safe. Know any nice uploading site? The zip is only 200kb.

    Are you setting any registry keys in hkey_local_machine? Are you writing data to c:\program files (or equivalent)?

    These things will cause vista to want to elevate permissions.
