Custom components issue n. 1

Hi all.

I opened a component I had written in Delphi 7 within Delphi XE3 and tried to compile and install but I receive the message 'File not found: DesignEditors.dcu' . In the editor DesignEditors and DesignIntf are red underlined. These units are inclued in the unit I use to register component.

But if I open a package which contains all my components (all... they are only 5), with the exact same source, I can compile and install without problems!

I need to solve because I want distribute components individually, not as a suite.

Googling I found several suggestions but none has solved the issue.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Try to remove DesignIde.dcp under Requires in project tree (usually on right side of ide).
You can do the same with all *.dcp files in Requires - Delphi will add all of then automatically. Then do full rebuild. Save project as XE3 variant like: MyPackXe3.dproj
Eventually - you can add ...Source\ToolsApi folder in Delphi Tools/Options/Library.

Hi sinisav.
I deleted rtl.dcp but this didn't change things. I added ToolApi but DesignEditors and DesignIntf remain red underlined and trying to build gives me the error

[dcc32 Fatal Error] ToolsAPI.pas(18): F1026 File not found: 'DockForm.dcu'

Adding designide.dcp to Requires solved the issue. Thanks for having made me look in the right place!
