hello kaloyan,

open delphi
click component /install component
click into new package
browse
change 'files of type' from *.pas to *.dcu
find your dcu file
click open
type in a package file name (test.dpk)
click ok
delphi will tell you package will be built and installed so click ok
and thats it (any probs just ask

This method requires a DCU compiled in the same Delphi version as you are using. e.g. you can not install a DCU compiles in D4 when you are using D5. In that case, you will need the source code of that component.
