New ISO for RAD Studio 2007 available for download

Author: Bob Swart

Apart from the Feb 08 Help Update, which I mentioned yesterday, there is also a whole new ISO for the CodeGear RAD Studio 2007 available for download from the Registered Users Page. Note that this ISO install is also useful for people with an ESD license, because you can burn the ISO to a DVD and then use that DVD and your serial number to install the ESD license on your machine(s).

Note that both the December 2007 and the Feb 08 Help Update are included with this ISO file, so it's the latest of the latest.

See for more information on how to correctly download the 4.2 GB ISO file.



Levend 08/03/02 13:59:49Does it really include eb08 help update? It's not mentioned anywhere...
Bob Swart 08/03/02 14:25:00I just downloaded the ISO file, and inside (in the Install folder) there is - among others - the file "helpwin32 english.7zip" which is 53,253,424 bytes - just as in the Feb08 Help Update (unlike the size 49,922,738 bytes of the earlier Help Update). So although it's not mentioned anywhere, this new ISO contains both the December Update and the Feb 08 Help Update.
Levend 08/03/02 14:39:35Thanks Bob... I wonder why they don't mention it anywhere? It's also confusing that they call it "Dec 2007 ISO" that makes it even more confusing to see that Feb08 help update is already included... :-(
Bob Swart 08/03/02 14:44:22I know it's not clear (they need to update that page), but that's why I explicitly mention that this ISO image is the latest of the latest. All .7zip files in the ISO are dated Feb 14th 2008, and the filesize of the helpfiles is the same as the (separate) Feb08 Help Update. So trust me, this ISO is the current latest version of CodeGear's RAD Studio 2007.
HeartWare 08/03/02 17:36:59It says on the download page "This ISO of the CodeGear RAD Studio 2007 DVD can be used to install CodeGear RAD Studio 2007, C++Builder 2007 (original release with Update 3 or R2 release) or Delphi 2007 for Win32 (original release with Update 3 or R2 release). The serial number you enter determines which product(s) will be installed.". What is the difference between "Update 3" and "R2 release"?
Bob Swart 08/03/02 17:40:41See for the complete story. R2 is what you get when you buy it today (or after September 14th), and R2 doesn't need Update 3 anymore.
Xepol 08/03/02 18:15:59I was just thinking with all the updates that a "slipstreamed" install disc would be handy. I was worried it might be seen as needless nagging. Glad to see that someone in house anticipated the request and delivered on so timely a schedule!
HeartWare 08/03/02 22:03:15Is it only the "Update 3" that is .DCU-compatible with RAD Studio 2006 (Win32), or is it also "R2"? Or none of them?
Bob Swart 08/03/06 11:23:33Delphi 2006, Delphi 2007 for Win32, and Delphi 2007 for Win32 R2 plus the Win32 identity of CodeGear RAD Studio 2007 are all .DCU-compatible with each other.
