Hi,

On my computer I have Delphi 2007 installed including the december update and 3rd party components.
During initial installation I omitted some componentpalets, as I didn't think I would need them.
Now after some years I need some of those.

How can I install additional standard components into Delphi without messing up my current installation.
Components that need to be installed additionally are a.o.::
Internet -> TWebBrowser

Try adding the package directly to the packages list

Choose Components - Install Packages
Click Add and browse to C:\Program Files\CodeGear\RAD Studio\5.0\bin\dclie100.bpl

This should add the TWebBrowser component into Internet palette

Oke, I found the correct bpl for the Internet palet, it is: dclisp100.bpl
But TWebBrowser isn't on it.

Het package you mentioned isn't on my computer (dclie100.bpl)

Any suggestions?

FAIK TWebBrowser comes from the Internet Explorer package.
Looking on my "old" 2007 installation

I must confirm that the package is the right one in my D2007.
As you have omited it during the first installation now you have to go to start - program files  - codegear rad studio  and choose Modify - Repair - Uninstall
Then, after selecting modify, you will be asked to add/remove the packages. Just add it there and go on with the modification process

Doing that I might need to re-install the december update also, do you agree?

Maybe, I think so, as something could been be recompiled with a new consts.pas version or something else. But that should be not so difficult or boring, I guess
