I know all this, but what can I do with builder? my task is to install a delphi component not inside delphi, but in builder.
thank you anyway.
Please search whether you find "DsgnIntf.dcu" or "DsgnIntf.pas" anywhere in any BCB folder. If yes, include this path to your library path (environment options). If not, you'll have to patch this Delphi component by removing "DsgnIntf" from the uses list. Hopefully this will not be too much work for you...
