Delphi 6 all of a sudden wants to be activated

Recommended Posts

I always thought that activation as optional for up to Delphi 7. Now my previously working Delphi 6 installation wants to be registered again. I'm using a valid registration key for Delphi 6 professional. Selecting "I will register at a later time", which always worked, no longer does. WTF?

(I blame a Windows 10 "feature" update).

 

Until I have resolved this issue, I can no longer test or debug anything for Delphi 6.

 

Any hints?

 

(Fortunately Delphi 7 still works)

WTF? Now it simply starts again!

I hate it when problems go away without finding out what the cause was.

Especially if our own code is doing things like this. God, how many hours we already spent debugging something which only triggers when several, rare conditions are met 🙂

I know you said your issue when away, but for anyone else searching for this I was able to resolve it by editing my registry.

 

Deleting the REG_BINARY LM key from Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Borland\Delphi\6.0 resolved my issue.
