Delphi 2.0 : My Reports won't run ##HELP##

Hi ...

Recently I located redundant copies of Reportsmith on my system ... I proceeded to delete them due to the fact that I needed space on my dard drive ....

Now my application wil not display the reports. It was working working fine prior to me deleting the files.
I assume that the reportsmith/ Runtime viewer is probably pointing to an arear that does not exist and looking for the files....
Is this true ?? How do I recftify this ?

Gives me a DLL error saying ' Unable to open rs_api.dll'

What has happend ??
Iwas able to locate this file on my hard disk in the
Program Files\Borland\....... directory .

How do I Repair the problem ??
Please Help ......

(Edited by Computer101) happens, don't it?
You are proberly right. You had the files at more than one place. You removed from some, but Delphi was using one of the copies you deleted, not the one you left on you HD.
It should help to re-install only reportsmith, and the installation program will fix it up for you. So if I were you I'd delete all the RepSmi-files I wanted to dissapear, and the install them again.

(If you don't like this one, there is another approach)
start the registry editor: regedit.exe
search for all occurences of the file rs_api.dll, and change the search path to the one that is right on your system.
(I wouldn't do this, cause it maybe a million of dll's that is on the wrong place and reinstalling is proberly the fastest!)

Hi ...

Thanks a million for your help.
I used Norton Registry Editor, located the registry for Reportsmith
and altered to to point to the correct location.  This seems to have solved the problem.
