HOWEVER: If you buy XE5 Pro (or higher) before the end of March 2014, you will have access to download a fully licensed earlier version (including D7) for free. Note, not all earlier versions are available, D7 is though). Until the end of March, you can get a bunch of stuff on this special offer, so you would have to move quickly.
Search Google for Marco Cantu, the author of books called "Mastering Delphi X" where X is the version of Delphi.His site is full of good stuff, including free e-books for those who aren't yet ready to start mastering Delphi.
I've noticed one problem, when I create portable version of Delphi 7, which is setup as Custom version. If I didn't install some components (like Microsoft Office components), then during portable version creation, I am getting the error that according file can not be found. But then each time when I start portable application, I am getting error that this file not found! Better to take into consideration that installation can be not full.

So this afternoon I received them and have gone through them all and made a list of all the full programs that the CDs have, also including some full encyclopedias and even operating systems! I did my best to prevent duplicate entries but please excuse me if there are any, also note that all software names and version numbers appear exactly as they did on the disc sleeves.
There are some exceptions that are probably met with gratitude here:1. If the publisher decided to add a dedicated CD containing the whole retail release (like it happened with Encarta or Linux distributions).2. If there's a significant full version software title that was seldom distributed stand-alone (like StuffIt, Staroffice for Linux, or "SE"/"Personal" titles etc.)
Acronis True Image Deluxe (version 184.108.40.206): setup runs on Win 10 x64, however it does not accept the serial for version 220.127.116.11 which floats around on the Internets. I do not know if this is a Win10-related issue; regretfully I cannot try installing on my Win98 machine which is not functional now.
