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?
