C++ Builder5: Problem with adding component package

Posted on 2003-03-11

I do the following:


I choose package BPL file, package appears checked on 'Design packages' list.
Now I can place additional compontets on forms and compile project with them.

I save and close my project, reopen it and then when I open form with additional components Builder shouts that they could not be found and indeed: when I look on package list again this package is unchecked. When I try to ckeck it, Builder complains about some file that cannot be found... and I have to [Add] this package again!

What am I doing wrong?

Are you installing the components without any project open.

And what's the file it complains about.

Fundamentally, you're doing the right things....

I don't know what file...

The message is: Can't load package (exact path to BPL file). One of the library files needed by this aplication cannot be found.
(The second sentence is not actually in English because I'm using localised Windows).

I solved this some time ago: that package required some additional DLL files. Just after I had loaded package Borland somehow managed to locate them (they were in the same directory that BPL file), but only in one session. After restarting IDE this information was lost... The solution is: put DLL files somewhere in Windows PATH. (BTW: I've found this in package README file, silly me :-)

I'll ask for PAQ and refund!

Thanks for comments!
