Packages on e drive in delphi 6

I have delphi 6.02 installed on my e drive. I have a number of third party packages installed also on the e drive. Every time delphi starts up is complains it can't find these packages. When I open the installed packages list they are unchecked, when I click on them I get the same message. _But_ if I then readd the same bpl's, the packages are they ticked in the list and everythings fine. Why won't it load these at startup?

Thanks, Tom.

Sound like you have something that is not installed properly.
Or is in conflict with something else.

Try the following:

Uninstall all the packages that are having problems.
Then do the following:

Install each package. After installing each package
Go To: Tools | Environment Options
Choose [Library] Tab.
on: [Library path] Click the Elipse Button.
And [Add] the Library path to the "Source Files" of the package that you just installed.

Install the Next Package, and [Add] it to the Library Path.

When you Install each Package and Add them to the Library Path
As you go, Then if a Package is in conflict with another one.
Then it will Let you know.
By giving you an error, that a certain resource is already included in another package.

Let me know if this helps you.

startup workaround?

The "tedious Exercise" Is a general practice in Delphi and any other program that
Works with components and library paths. This is a given practice.

Good luck
