I wish to use a COM DLL created in Delphi
I do Project-> Import Type Library
I select the Library in the top ListBox
When I do so I see a list of Classes.
This list includes TDataBase

When I click 'Install' or 'Create Unit'
I receive the msg:
"The Class Name 'TDataBase' is already installed."

I can get around this problem by removing a package, but
I do not wish to . What is the work around for this
SomeHow I need to create a namespace or alias for one
of the TDataBase definitions?
Thanks

The classes list is editable, so change the "TDataBase" to something that it won't conflict with,

example: TComDataBase

Great thanks , now I get an error in creating the
TLB file. The project compiles so I am going to
proceed assuming I can forget the error.
