In Reply to move Delphi 5 to laptop posted by Jan Dunn-p12534 on January 25, 2007: Is there a way to move Delphi 5 with all the compnents I've installed and so forth from my desktop PC to my laptop PC without having to go through the entire installation?
Yes, theoretically it's possible, but there is no standard procedure for this. I reccon it would be a very tedious job...
1. Copy the directory structure and all of the files of Delphi 5 to your laptop, and do the same for your extra components.
2. Step by step, add the Delphi-related and extra-component-related registry items from your desktop PC to your laptop. On every step, make notes about what you did :) and try what works/ doesn't work.
Alas, I can't give any tips, because this is different for each installation. You could give it a try, but you should expect a lot of trial and error before it works.
