Simple question (Error)

I've got an error message when installing a new component to Delphi.  Delphi looks for a PAS file ("file not found") when I have the same file but in DCU.  Why?  And how to resolve this problem?

Meanwhile, I will try to resolve this problem by myself.

Thanks for help!

That happens when the component you are installed wasn't compiled for the version of Delphi you have.

DCU files are version-specific. For example: if you have a DCU for a component that was compiled with Delphi 4.03, that component can only be installed in a Delphi version 4.03. It wont work with Delphi 4.02 or Delphi 5.

You should contact the developer (or vendor) of the component and see if there is any version available for the very same version of Delphi you are using.



For a C you should as well have kept the points for yourself.
