Detecting the Delphi edition that is installed

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/04/09

Via [WayBack] In what ways can you detect which edition of Delphi in installed from the installed files? I’m trying to distinguish between Standard, Professional, E… – Jeroen Wiert Pluimers – Google+

Different Delphi editions have different msbuild support files. For instance IDL is only available in Enterprise/Architect/Ultimate (which use the exact same binaries anyway).

IDL is old, see

So I updated my [WayBack] jeroenp / / Run-Dependend-rsvars-From-Path.bat — Bitbucket (which besides running rsvars.bat, can start the various Delphi IDE personalities, or run msbuild with various configurations) with [WayBack] jeroenp / / commit / 2c55fa1bf786 — Bitbucket:

Support 10.1 Berlin and 10.2 Berlin in Run-Dependend-rsvars-From-Path.bat, as well as Professional/Starter editions.

Thanks to Andrea Magni – Google+, Querying was simple: look for the value of the Edition entry under inside the *\X\BDS\Y.0 where Y is the BDS version, X is Borland, CodeGear or Embarcadero (depending on the BDS version) and * is the base key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE , HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node.
