Delphi 2007 Activex Import

When importing the media player activex component into D2007, where the heck does it go?  It used to be easy on D5, it would just appear on the activex tab and you could drop it on the form.  Where the heck does it go on D2007?  I can't find the visual component after doing component-import component, no matter where I put it.  Even if I choose "system" it doesn't appear there.

Maybe they would actually sell some copies of this if you didn't have to guess at everything.

 Create a delphi package before importing the active x component and save it to a project directory.  Import the control, specifying the same location.  On the last page of the wizard it will ask if you want to add the new unit to your package project, select that radio button and finish.  Right click on the project and click on Install.  Now you should be able to see your component in the ActiveX section of your components.  I followed these steps myself in Delphi 2007 and it worked for me.

P.S.  If you just have it create the source file (no package) it will not automatically appear on the component palette.

Let me know if you need more.

Here is a complete article for you specifically on importing ActiveX stuff into D2007.

It is based on Crystal Reports Active X but simply change the crystal reports stuff to the activex you want to install.

Hope this helps.
