Hi...
  How do I create an "About" window, so users can just click "Help", then "About" and see the version information of my program? I also wish to have a graphic displayed in it.
I am using Delphi v1.0.

Regards,

Add a Form to your project.

Add a TImage to that form and load a graphic into it.

On the Help menu, add a click event to the About choice.
Put this code there:
    frmAbout.Show;

On the About form, put a button.  Add a click event to the
button and add this code:
    frmAbout.Hide;

That should be all there is to it.
