Delphi 2005 Update 3 Release Notes

This file contains important supplementary information that may not appear in the main product documentation. Borland recommends that you read this file in its entirety.

For information about installation, deployment, and licensing issues, see the Install, Deploy, and License files located by default in C:\Program Files\Borland\BDS\3.0\.


General Notes

Delphi 2005 update 3 resolves the modeling performance issues that affected Delphi 2005 update 2. If you disabled modeling support in Delphi 2005 update 2, you can re-enable modeling without impacting IDE performance.

To enable modeling support

  • With the IDE open, choose Tools | Options to display the Options dialog box.
  • Select the General node in the Together category.
  • Set the Automatically enable Together support for new projects and Automatically enable Together support for opened projects fields to True.
  • Click OK to close the Options dialog box.


Installation Notes

  • WARNING: The Update 3 patch may not update your bds.exe.config file if you have modified it since Update 2. To ensure that bds.exe.config is updated, back up your copy of bds.exe.config and copy the updated bds.exe.config provided in this update to the installed location (typically C:\Program Files\Borland\BDS\3.0\bin\bds.exe.config).

    NOTE: If you installed the Update 2 'hotfix', you need to perform the above manual update to bds.exe.config.

  • This update is provided as an executable. To perform the update, launch the executable and follow the prompts.
  • This update can only be applied to Delphi 2005 update 2.
  • Delphi 2005 must be closed before installing this update.
  • You will need the original Delphi 2005 installation media to install this update. You will be prompted for the Delphi2005Disk1 and Delphi2005Disk2 disks while installing this update.
  • This update cannot be removed once it is installed.

Verifying That The Update Was Successful

The final dialog box of the update installer indicates if the update was successful. You can also verify that the update was installed successfully using one of the following methods:

  • Open the Windows Control Panel, click Add/Remove Programs, and then select the Borland Delphi 2005 product. Click the "Click here for support information" link and verify that the version is 9.0.3.
  • Open the registry using regedit and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\BORLAND\BDS\3.0 and verify that the "ProductVersion" and "UpdatePackInstalled" string values are 9.0.3 and 3, respectively.
  • With the IDE open, choose Help | About to display the About dialog box. Verify that "Update 3" appears after the product version number.

Warning About Editing the Registry

  • Perform Windows registry edits at your own risk. The registry is a critical component of your operating system. Any mistakes made while editing it can cause your machine to stop functioning. This document and other product documentation describes how to edit your registry. In most cases, Borland recommends using the Microsoft regedit tool to perform editing. Whatever tool you use, you should, prior to editing your registry, make backups of your registry and thoroughly familiarize yourself with the editing tool and the registry editing process.
