Delphi 7 is not quite compatible with Win 7. But you can solve this problem by following Hans’ steps:
- Run this as administrator.
- Open the properties on c:/program files/delphixxx directory.
- On the first tab Clear the Read-only attribute and press Apply for all files including subdirectory.
- Open the security tab
- Give users (and admins if necessary) full access to c:/program files/delphixxx directory
