Just bringing up this old issue...

I'm interested about the status of this too. It would be nice to get 
delphi apps working again, as most of them do not work anymore (at least 
those what I use :) ).

( Try for example WinISD ( ). It ends up 
into infinite WM loop without that patch, when you try to create a new 
project. )
