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??

After check [project]-[options]-[Packages]-[Design packages]-[Winshoes for D4], could you find new palette  about [winshoes] on the Component palette?

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?
