I've installed delphi6 Each component which has dcu files and does not have it's pas file doesn't work on delphi 6

All of this components worked on delphi 5.

What to do?

.DCU files for Delphi 5 will not work for Delphi 6 because they are not binary compatible.  Each version of Delphi changes it's .DCU format slightly to be able to handle it's new features.

If you don't have the .pas files to recompile in Delphi 6, you need to purchase the Delphi 6 .dcu files from the vendor.

Thanks

I have the same problem.
It's not the right answer but I just add the pas file to my project and I can compile.

I'm sorry to hear I wasted my time.  Sometimes the correct answer may just be "you can't".  Please remember that.

Ya, I know.  But I think he'll get less answers from the group.  At least from me....  :)
