Trying to recreate custom ActiveX Libraries - Have the pas files but Delphi errors when loading the typelib

I recently experienced a crash of the drive that had my Delphi6 install.  I had cloned the drive earlier in the year and I re-cloned the old drive to get back up and running.   All of the software I have written that is not ActiveX will compile just fine.  When I try and open an ActiveX library project the IDE errors with the following:

Error loading Type library/DLL - which basically tells me that it can't find the typelib...

Now I have all of the pas files for these libraries (including the _TLB.pas files) and need to somehow re-establish the typelibs.

So, given a situation where you had all of the .pas files originally contained in the ActiveX Library but you are not able to load/edit the type library, what would be the best, most efficient method of recreating the type library from the source files available?

Thanks In Advance...
