WinShoes installation problem.

Hi,
I'm using D4.  Recently, I downloaded WinShoes internet components.  However, I can't get it installed.  D4 always said something like:
"Cannot load the package WinshoesPkg40...can't find the file required by the package."
I can't quote the exact message, as I don't have D4 in hand now.  I just wanna know how I can solve this problem.   I've set the search path, library path, but cant help!
Thanks

yes. I had the same problem. You should place location of your WinShoes directory in the Environment Option -> Library Path; and in the Environment Option -> Browsing Path

Hi, nyt!
I've installed WinShoes. Then I saw
    [Fatal Error] Unit1.pas(7): File not found: 'DsgnIntf.dcu'
dsgnintf.pas locates in $(DELPHI)\Source\Toolsapi - add this path into Environment Options -> Library -> Library Path
Compile and Build - OK :)

Hi XAN,
With your solution, I still can't get it installed.

Hi yk,
After press the "Add" button, I selected "WinshoesPkgD4.bpl"...but then the same message appeared again...

Hi johnwa,
Sad to tell, your method also doesn';t work...

I suppose I haven't installed something when installing Delphi 4, therfore I have this problem....but what 's the missing thing??

Hi johnwa,
Do you mean that to move "WinshoesPkgD4.bpl" to \windows\system?  Or ALL bpl files??

Hi inthe,
Sad to tell, I'm not using a commercial ISP.  So I can't access the newsgroups.

Hi yk,
I can't see this:
[project]-[options]-[Packages]-[Design packages]-[Winshoes for D4]...If this is seen, I think my problem has been solved.

Hi johnwa,
I have tried to move the WinshoesPkgD4.bpl to the system directory, but can't help.

How about open the WinshoesPkgD4.dpk
and compile/install again in your D4?
I think it will register it in you D4?
