How to transfer a Delphi Profile from One PC to another

Assuming that Delphi and the other VCLs are is installed in the same folder at the new PC, then the migration is fairly easy if you are comfortable working with regedit.

The information is stored in the Registry under  a key called HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Borland\Delphi\5.0 or something like that. You'll find all the registration information under that key, including a list of installed packages.

Just export the keys to a registry file, copy it to the new computer and install it by double-clicking on it

Welcome to Delphi... Delphi... Delphi

I have been a Delphi Developer since Delphi 3 when I finally decided on Delphi in 1996 as my programming language of choice for the Windows 32 environment. So what have I created with Delphi ?

Would you believe that I had single-handedly created a full ERP2 system comprising ERP+CRM where ERP=Sales Distribution+MRP+ Procurement Management+Planning & Production +Finacial Management + Human Resources Management System.
