Hi I wrote a simple component ages ago, somewhere I have the source for it but at the moment all I have is the DCU.
I was under the impression that this was all I needed to install it into the component palette... but I can't seem to get this right as the compile always looks for the .pas file....

Can any one tell me what is going on??

hi Rob,

if the dcu file not compiled with your current delphi-version,
then you have to search your sources.

sorry to say but you must be using a different vrsion of delphi now.
if the version is different the component install will ,as you say its doing ,look for the pas.with out the pas there is no way to install unless you have exact same delphi version.
