Question:
Why isn't a network install of Delphi 3 supported?


Answer:
Delphi 3 was not designed to be installed on a network. Borland
makes no claims that a network install of Delphi 3 will work.

It may work for some users if all work machines install Delphi 3
to the same location on the network. This requires many rights,
including:

  * Writing shared DLLs and OCXs to NT4's System32 directory
      (usually C:\WinNT\System32)

  * Writing registry entries to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

  * Writing registry entries to HKEY_CURRENT_USER

  * Writing registry entries to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
      (part of registering OCXs)

Delphi 3 expects all shared DLLs, packages and OCXs to
be locally installed.

Delphi 3 expects all registry entries to be local.

Many problems may arise when trying to install Delphi 3 on a
network. Possibly the most important one is the network software
and hardware itself. Unforeseen problems may occur with any
network configuration.

For more information, please see the TI entitled "Installing and
using Delphi 3 under NT4".
