Delphi versions that can convert .bpg to .groupproj files

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/06/05

Reminder to self: extend the below very incomplete list of Delphi versions that can open a Borland Project Group file with extension .bpg (from the Delphi <= 7 era) and convert it to an XML based Group Project file with extension .grouproj (from the Delphi >= 2007 era).

  • Delphi 2007


The .bpg file is actually a makefile, see for instance [WayBackbuild – How to compile a Delphi 7 project group file (.bpg) using the command line? – Stack Overflow

Delphi 2006 and 2005 use .bdsgroup files:

The .bdsgroup files are not compatible with .groupproj files in Delphi 2007 and up: [WayBackdelphi – How to convert a D2009 .groupproj file to a D2006 .bdsgroup file? – Stack Overflow.

A .grouproj file is basically an msbuild 2013 subset, see the below links for more info:

PS: Searching for the .groupproj links also got me this: [WayBackParallel compilation of delphi projects through MSBuild – Stack Overflow
