Trouble with instally Packages in Delphi 2006
Posted on 2007-03-22
I have just upgraded to Delphi 2006 from Delphi 7, the problem is that we have some “home grown” VCL Components, in Delphi 7 we used to install them directly into the IDE.
However 2006 insists (rightly so) you make them into Packages and compile, build and install them. This I found straight forward. (Can go in more detail if need be)
The problem is when I use the component, it draws it on the form and I can inspect it using the object inspector.
However when I run the program it throws a compiler error saying it does not recognise the unit defined the "use" clause.
The only way I can get the program to run is add the unit to search directory in the project options, surely this is not right way to install and USE components in 2006.
Thanks in Advance
