I just got a component that tells me to do the following:
Run Delphi and install APMAP components. Open package APMAP5.DPK (APMAP6.DPK, APMAP7.DPK) and install it into VCL, then open APDBMAP5.DPK (APDBMAP6.DPK, APDBMAP7.DPK) and install it.
I enter Delphi and click COMPONENT --> INSTALL COMPONENT
I get the DIALOG BOX SHOWN IN SCREEN 1 ATTACHED. I click on the name of the .DPK file I am told to install and put it in PACKAGE FILE NAME as shown. But how on earth to I tell it to place the new package in VCL? I cannot find a *.dpk file in in my Borland Directory tree called VCL.DPK. Even if I could I don't know where to put it in this dialog box.
Because I could see no other way to proceed I specified the *.dcu file in the top dialog box (see SCREEN 1). Eventually I tried to compile it but received the error message that:
"required package designdgm not found".
Just shoot me but this is a really nasty way to design a user interface. It must have be designed by that cheerful soul who first decided to call a program error a "FATAL" error.
I know think I have a partially installed component so I need to know how to remove it.
