Update your Delphi and C++Builder Applications

On April 8, 2014 Microsoft ended support for Windows XP, one of the most popular operating systems ever. Industry experts estimate that Windows XP is still being used on nearly 30% of PCs. An estimated 500 million computers, kiosks, ATMs and other systems are still running XP. A massive shift forward to newer versions of Windows is expected this year with the end of support.
