Where does Delphi 6 store its list of installed design time packages?

I have essentially the same Delphi 6 install on two machines. One machines's registry took a crap. After that Delphi 6 lost all its settings, including design time packages and library paths. Not a problem, since I have a mirror image on another machine.


Looking for a quick fix, I hacked around in the registry and managed to find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Borland\Delphi\6.0. I transplanted it. That fixed the library paths and some other things. Delphi runs fine, but all the packages are still missing.

Note, the above registry branch does include a KnowPackages key.

The Delphi 6 folders on both machines are identical. I'm not sure where else to look.

Thanks
Rick

That was it. About half the entries under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Borland\Delphi\6.0 were missing. Ijust imported that key from the other machine; now all is fine.

Nice doing business with you.

What threw me was that the same key also exists under HEKY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
