Hi experts.  
    I am trying to open a .dpk file but I am not having much luck.  I tried to download a free trial for Delphi but the file still will not open.  If I attach the file can one of the experts open it for me?

A .dpk is a package and there are .pas files that probably go with it.

You can attach it and we will try to find out what is wrong with it

The supplier of the dpk should provide you with a package that opens without any issues. All you need to do is download the package that corresponds to your version of Delphi. BTW, what version of Delphi are you using? and what component are you trying to install? Is it open-source or proprietory? Make sure you're downloading from a "trustworthy" source.

i .dpk is just text indicating which libraries it contains
there are absolutely no secrets in
the only secrets contained are in the libraries

you can open a .dpk with notepad to see the text

sample text:
 
package RS15;

{$R *.res}
{$RUNONLY}

requires
  rtl,
  vcl,
  dxThemeRS15,
  dxGDIPlusRS15,
  cxLibraryRS15,
  dxCoreRS15;

contains
  dxorgced,
  dxorgchrstrs,
  dxorgchr;

end.

Open in new window


the problem will be that you are missing some files
which the requires references to

the .dpk must still be compiled

a free trial of delphi, is a personal edition
this does not allow of creating your own components and packages from a .dpk
you need to buy a licensed version
