RAD Studio Previous Versions

When you buy the latest version of RAD Studio, you also get access to earlier versions of Delphi and C++Builder at no extra charge. This is a cost effective solution for development teams adding developers to support existing applications because you get the latest version plus access to the earlier versions that you need at no extra cost.

RAD Studio XE7 includes access to previous versions

Embarcadero RAD Studio XE7 is the current version of RAD Studio. With RAD Studio XE7, you also get access to licenses for older versions – RAD Studio XE4-XE6, Delphi 7 and 2007-XE3, C++Builder 6 and 2007-XE3, HTML5 Builder XE3 and RadPHP XE-XE2.

How to get your earlier version licenses and downloads


Named user licenses, 5-packs or 10-packs

  • You must install and register your XE7 serial number before you request the older version licenses.
  • You must request your older version licenses within 180 days of your purchase of the XE7 product.
  • Your earlier version licenses will be tied to your user account and cannot be given away or sold. If your XE7 license is an upgrade, you will not receive additional licenses for older versions that you already own.
