Trying to install skype4comlib_tlb.pas on delphi XE2 project

Hello experts,

I am trying to install skype4comlib in my Delphi XE2 project. I used Component -> Import Component...

The result is I get a skype4comlib_tlb.pas in my project.

Great. it seems straight forward. Only, when I compile my project, I get:

[DCC Error] OMSAT.dpr(21): E2018 Record, object or class type required

on application.initialize and the rest of application.something ...

If I remove the skype4comlib from my project. All is good.

I realize that I am not that strong a programmer and I have been trying to find an answer to this for the last 4 hours.

Same thing happens if I start a new project.

Note that my "target platform" is 64-bit windows
Also (not that its relevant) I have no problem with SkypeDialogLib_tlb.pas so its definately something XE2 does not like in skype4comlib_tlb.

Thanks for your help.

At the outset it seems simple enough
The compiler was expecting to find the type name which specified a record, object or class but did not find one.
And to find out whats missing you need to provide codes used by you.

Download this.
It implements skype com lib though for a different purchase.
I have tested compiling and running and its done ok.
Maybe you can use tlb with this application and try it.

Thanks for the link I will give it a shot later.

I decided to solve my problem with a shell execute instead. Less of a headache...

For those interested:

          s := 'callto://1234567' ;
          ShellExecute(0, 0, pChar(s), 0, 0, SW_SHOWNORMAL);
