Despite what Borland says, Delphi 2005 doesn't require .NET.

If you are a Delphi Win32 developer and don't like that Delphi 2005 comes polluted with .NET stuff, read this article to learn how to remove .Net from Delphi 2005.

This has been tested on Delphi 2005 Architect Edition. I have written two cases: one if you are making a clean install of Delphi 2005, and other if you want to hack an already installed Delphi 2005.

So if you want to free your installation of Delphi 2005 from .Net, try the two following approaches (plus one suggestion):

  1. Clean install of Delphi 2005
  2. Hacking an already installed Delphi 2005
  3. How to save memory and fasten the load time
