This is an informal fix for debugger problems that occur when running Delphi 2007, C++Builder 2007, or RAD Studio 2007 on Windows 7. The primary problem being fixed is a debugger assert that usually occurs when terminating a process being debugged on a 64-bit version of Windows 7. The text of the assert is:

Assertion failure: "(!"SetThreadContext failed")"

This version also fixes a few minor problems when debugging on Windows 7.

Before applying this fix, it is highly recommended that you make a backup copy of your existing bordbk105N.dll.

Installation instructions:

1) Unzip the zip file.
2) Copy the bordbk105N.dll file into the bin directory of your Delphi 2007, C++Builder 2007, or RAD Studio 2007 installation. A typical location for this on a 64-bit machine is:

C:\Program Files (x86)\CodeGear\RAD Studio\5.0\bin

Standard disclaimers apply. This fix has not been tested at all, and it is not supported in any way by Embarcadero. If it works for you, great... if not, you've been warned.
