Hi Experts!

By mistake (don't ask how), I erased the DCUs of the C:\...\Borland\Delphi7\Lib.

Is there an easy way to recompile the archives of Source (C:\...\Borland\Delphi7\Source\VCL, C:\...\Borland\Delphi7\Source\Rtl\..., etc) to regenerate those lost DCUs?

Thanks in advance.

S.O.: Windows XP
Delphi 7.

    why not copy them from the installation CD? it's the easyest and safest way.
    the way you want it mnight work but I never tried it: you can try to create a project/package and add all source files to it and compile it (don't forget to set output directory to lib)
    but I recommend copying them from the installation cd.

    Recompile...No WAY. Take ciuly's advise, copy them from the installation CD, if you have it <bg>..
