    [font=Verdana, Arial, Tahoma, Calibri, Geneva, sans-serif]Recently I was faced with an error everytime I would compile Delphi, never had this before even when running as admin.[/font]
    [font=Verdana, Arial, Tahoma, Calibri, Geneva, sans-serif]Fixed all those issues for me.[/font]

    [ltr]For users using windows 7 this will save you a little time after install >

    •Make sure you run this as (administrator) >>> you will need the privs.
    •Run the Delphi installer. (Use defaults for the file locations), !(ignore the incompability warnings)!
    •When installed > when starting a project u get a msg>>>> about unable to rename delphi32.$$$ to .dro in the /program files/delphi directories . And something about debug options requiring a change.
    So there are access problems, as to be expected. Windows 7 is a lot more robust, so directories are better protected
    Solve the access problems
    1.Run this as administrator.
    2.Open the properties on c:/program files/delphixxx directory.
    3. On the first tab Clear the Read-only attribute and press Apply for all files including subdirectory.
    4. Open the security tab
    5.Give users (and admins if necessary) full access to c:/program files/delphixxx directory
    This will get the help function working > without a update< it isnt supported for some reason ? idfk

    1.Remove the Read-only attribute from winhlp32.exe and winhelp32.exe in c:/windows
    2.Set - ownership of the winhlp32.exe file (properties, security tap, advanced) to administrators (and remember, you are logged on as admin!)
    3. change the security to full control
    4. rename winhlp32.exe to something like winhlp32old.exe just in case
    5.copy from a Windows XP system the files winhlp32.exe and winhelp.exe in c:\windows
