Free PDF Component in CodeGear Delphi 2009

I'm looking for a free component to create PDF-files in CodeGear Delphi 2009. I've tried with TNPDF ver. 2 made by K. Nishita, but Adobe Reader can't open the PDF-files generated by the example program, when I compile it myself. When running the precompiled exe-file instead, the PDF-files are made on opened in Adobe Reader without any problems.

The only free pdf component set I have ever found was PowerPDF,

... and I do not know if it would compile under D9.

Even if you could get the TnPDF component to work, the colors were all way off! Some major rewriting in getting the RGB pallettes to look and function correctly.

GhostScript, an OpenSource project, creates PDFs and I have seen some some code on SourceForge, I believe, for some comps for Delphi.

Good luck!

Ghostscript is the way to go, unless you want to embed a PHP interpreter and do it using the PHP PDF functions.

http://libharu.sourceforge.net/ This one might work out for you.
It uses a thirdparty .dll and is  free.

Hope this is what you seek.

Ooops, apparently I am becoming senile, since I forgot to answer my own question... Sorry guys!
I ended up rewriting the DelphiTwain-library (made by Gustavo Daud), to make it support unicode, which it did't.  
Thanks for your help everyone!
