Sorry, it is IDL2PAS.BAT and it can be found in Program Files\Borland\Delphi7\Bin

I suggest to go with other alternate. It's very easy.
1. Choose File, Open,  
2. From the Files of Type choose Type Library
3. Now choose File, Save As and click Save.

Yep, if you have MIDL.EXE it will work. It's microsoft compiler for IDL files what can produce TLB files. once you have a .TLB you can import it to delphi.
