I have an application developed in DELPHI 7. When i run the application in DELPHI 2005, it says the error "Fatal Error: Could not compile used unit Elastfrm.pas" since missing of a component TElasticForm. I have the files \elastfrm\delphi7\elastfrm.dcr, elastfrm\delphi7\elastfrm.dcu and \elastfrm\elfrmreg.pas files.

When i tried creating a package using the pas file elfrmreg.pas it says that "[Fatal Error] elfrmreg.pas(28): F1026 File not found: 'ElastFrm.dcu'"

code unit of elfrmreg.pas

unit ElFrmReg;

uses Classes;

procedure Register;


uses ElastFrm;          // ------------------------- ERROR OCCURS at this line while compiling the package

{$R ElastFrm.DCR}
procedure Register;

  RegisterComponents('QSysGraph', [TElasticForm]);



Can anyone tell me how to create a package with these files and to have TElasticForm component in the application? I want to run the application in DELPHI 2005 eventhough it was developed using Delphi 7
