Cannot open project types

In Delphi 2007 I need to open project types like Active Form (ActiveX) and WSDL Importer (WebServices).  They are viewable under the File/New/Customize... menu choice but not available in File/New/ActiveX or File/New/WebServices.  Can you tell me how to enable these project types?

From the File/New/Customize option, you should be able to drag and drop individual elements from the Gallery items over to the "Menu Items" list  that creates the list of items available for the standard File/New menu listing.

I don't have access to a Delphi 2007 image anymore, but looking at other IDE versions, this all seems to work in roughly the same manner.

Your response would be how I too interpret the design of file/new/customize... but unfortunately it does not work after dragging the Active Form project type to the menu items pane and later looking for it.  I was able to get the WSDL Importer project to be available by first starting a new Delphi Package and then going back and saying File/New/WSDL Importer.  Weird but OK.  There must be a similar trick to get Active Form projects to be available.

I think the issue here is that ActiveForms have to be added to an existing project / ActiveX Type Library. They aren't truly independent, and therefore don't instantiate their own project when created through the wizard (at least not in D2005 that I just walked through). Because of this, you have to have an appropriate project open, even if it is just a dummy project, in order to access the Create/New/ActiveForm menu item.

Hope that gets you in the right direction.

Thanks IrishBuddha.  To create an Active Form project I had to first start a new ActiveX Library then File/New/Other... activated Active Form for me to use.  Now it makes sense.
