Here is the option for setting the library search path:
Tools > Environment Options > Library > Library Path

vcl.dcp is located in Lib directory of Delphi. Therefore, $(DELPHI)\Lib should be in the list of library paths.

What version of Delphi 7 your using?
If its 7.3+?,  then, it does not work for windows 7, even during installation.

Has this package been successfully compiled and installed before ? It could be missing parts/files/lib in order to compile correctly. Also did it work on Win xp (if you tried) ?

Hi guys,

  Thanks for the hints but none of them works. Delphi was working very well in Windows 7, $(DELPHI)\Lib is there, the files that Delphi says that can't be loaded are there. There is somethig loadt in a secret place.

is that package compatible with Delphi 7 ? Have you tested that before on Delphi 7, may be it is not.

1.
Go to Tools->Environment Options
Select the Library tab,
In Library Path, check if you have the entry $(Delphi)\LIB
In Browsing Pach check for the entry $(Delphi)\source\vcl

2.
Try compiling
If you still have the error, Open the package and check your requires lis

Require
   vcl.dcp
   rtl.dcp,
   ....
Remove vcl.dcp, save and try to compile, if the system offers to add the file, accept

3. If you r still getting errors, check if you have a corresponding runtime package that needs to be compiled first. If thats the case, compile the runtime package first then load the current package and attempt to compile

The problem was related to Windows path, not Delphy path.
