    Hi Paul

      I can import them without problems, here's the best way I found to import ActiveX controls with D2005

    First, Create new package for win 32, then go to component > Import component > Import ActiveX control
    then choose the one you want, and in last step choose Add unit to Package1 project
    now right click on the package at project manager and choose install

    I imported windows media player and adobe acrobat ocxs without problem

    ActiveX is already on the palette right asfter you install delphi 5-6-7 (tryed them all)
    It is probabely a problem with your installation.
    You should check on the menu on Component -> Configure Palette.. and look for it there. If you cannot find it, try to Add it using the Add button and after that try to add the activeX-es
    Or reinstall Delphi. As I said before... it comes with delphi installation.
