Running BDS2006 and RAD2007 on the same PC

The "non-breaking" release RAD2007 has the nasty habit to break an existing BDS2006 installation because packages - including those used by the IDE - have the same names, and usually the RAD 2007 path comes before the BDS2006 path - and thereby BDS2006 attempts to load the wrong packages.
A workaround is to use DLL redirection, a feature of the Windows loader that allows to load DLLs from the application path first, ignoring the path.
