Seems that the component is written for Delphi 2...
Simplest way is to copy the content of the "c:\delphi\lib\delphi2" into the "c:\delphi\lib" directoy. You could also add the ole2 unit from the "c:\delphi\lib\delphi2" directory to the dpk file. Or you add the "c:\delphi\lib\delphi2" directory to delphi's search path.

Regards, Madshi.

Or you could try replacing "uses OLE2" with "uses ActiveX" and with a little luck it might work.

Or you could remove "uses OLE2" and see what identifier the compiler complains about, and then search for a definition of it in the vcl, and add that file to the uses clause.
