I have 2007 and 2009 installed on my machine. The DAC stuff I use to access MySQL that was written for Builder 2009 has made it so I can't use 2007 at all. Oh, well, I need to bite the bullet and learn to live with this infernal Unicode stuff anyway...

Before my primary mchine died awhile back ago, I had BCB 3-6 installed on it. On my current machine, I have BCB 6, 2006, 2007, and 2010 installed.

Have you considered using virtualization to provide each installation with its own separate environment?

This earlier topic touched on the subject.

Well, I am afraid I have no idea what virtualization is, but I am perfectly content sticking with just one IDE even to maintain existing code. So I will just stick with 2009 until I get something newer.

Thanks,
Steve.

It is the ability to run entire OS environments inside your main PC, completely isolated from each other, but can be run simultaneously. Great for developers to test new software without fear of corrupting their main system, or running multiple versions of the same software together, even different OSes (I have Linux running on my WinXP system, for example). You can even take snapshots of them in realtime and restore them at any time later. Look at VMWare, VirtualPC, and other similar programs.
