There are 2 methods depending on how the component(s) are packaged

1.) Components->Install componets
Then pick the .pas file or the .dcu file and choose which package you want to install them in.  The users package by default is fine

2.)  Components->Install Packages
Select Add and then pick the .bpl file.  Most things you download that come with more than one component are stored in these (borland package library).

Hi ibartek,

You may also have a *dpk (design time package) . If so, you could do

 File --> Open

 Select that *.dpk package.


When the Package Editor opens, Click Compile, Install


You should then have the component on your Pallette

hi ibartek
You may have *.dpk and *.pas(or *.dcu) files.
Components->Install componets
In the Unit file name space enter *.pas file path, in the package name space enter full path to *.dpk file. Press OK. Than you will see the list of units in console window. Press compile and than install.
Hope it will help you

If it`s big collection or functionally component it must two packages.
1.RunTime
2.DesignTime

OPen Runtime packages (f.e:Tnt_UnicodeVcl_R) compile it.
Then open designtime compile and install . Thats all.
