Below is another way to detect whether your program runs in the Delphi IDE. The symbol DebugHook is defined in a system unit (tested here with Delphi 5), so you do not need to add any units to the USES clause as shown in the example below.

program p;
  if DebugHook<>0 then 
    ShowMessage('Running in Delphi IDE');
