Upgrade Delphi 6 Enterprise to Turbo Delphi 2006 questions about 3rd party components.

Good day,

I am planning to upgrade my delphi 6 version to turbo delphi 2006, I am concern about 3rd party components.

I am using two 3rd party components currently with delphi 6, Forsted Reporting Tool and Bome OneInstance component.

If I upgrade to turbo delphi 2006 will these components work, or how can I get these components to work in turbo.

the author does have a delphi 2005 version online though: http://www.fortesreport.com.br/index.en.htm
I think if you mail him he might be able to compile a BDS2006 / Turbo Delphi version for you.
MerijnBSr. Software EngineerCommented:
My experience so far is that you have the source code of the components, it is not that much work to install them in Turbo Delphi. Did you check the author? Maybe he already made a Turbo compatible version.

If it's only two components, you can send them to me to see if they install/compile (not work) property.

Hi MerijnB

I have not checked yet with Bome, I will send him a email and ask him. his website is http://www.bome.com, his seems like a very nice guy, he want's only a postcard if you use his component.

Fortes Report, I checked but cant get anything, I dont think anyone support fortes anymore.

I can zipped the components and email it to you, please send me your email.

Do you know about quick reports maybe, all my reports are currently done in quickreport 3.

Thanx Henry

my email address should be visible in my profile. I can't tell you anything about quickreport since I rarely use it. Do you have sourcecodes of the fortes Report component?

sorry I dont see your email address

strange, sent it to bosma [at] xs4all [dot] nl

I've received your mail, the zip file only contains no pas files though, only compiled pas files (dcu files).
You will not be able to use these in Turbo Delphi.

Don't forget that in order to install any third party components in Turbo Delphi, you MUST purchase the professional version. The free version will not allow you to install or use any third party components.

Just for your info!

Good luck.
