I installed  a new  component but Delphi 7 gives an error while compiling.
It tries to search for the pas file of the component but I only have a dcu file.
How can I solve this ??

Is the directory containing the .dcu in the library path?
Tools > Environment Options > Library > Library Path
If not, try to add it.

Could it be that it's a dcu for another Delphi version? If it wasn't compiled with D7's compiler, it won't be of much use for you. You'd need the pas file.

The dcu has to match the exact Delphi version, even if the original pas file would work perfectly with D7. The compiler will recognize it's a different version and will not accept it.
If the path is correct, then I guess this is the problem. Try to obtain a D7 version of the compiled unit if possible.
(the pas is of course always the ideal choice).
