Compiling delphi project on a new computer- version problems

Actia asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-05
Hi Experts!

I have a Delphi project on my computer. We use quite a lot of different components.
It works fine on my machine.

Today I tried to compile this project on another computer.
I installed Delphi and all components.
Then copied my source code and tried to compile it.
It is far from being easy!

I receive a lot of error messages like:

file 'aaa' was compiled with a different version of 'zzz'

the problem is that I do not know which version of components I have on my computer, so I do not really know
which version should I install on a new machine.

Is there any way to:

1. Find out which version of components I have on my computer?
2. To compare file versions of files in selected folders on my and on a new computer?

Thank you very much :-)

You can try adding in Enviroment Options, Library, all source code in Delphi\Source\VCL and Delphi\Source\Toolsapi.
This will recompile with your application all delphi libraries used with it.
