I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Only one meaning, there is file that the compiler is looking for but can not find.
You need to update the library path to add the link for Indy sources.

Delphi explanation for that sort of errors:
The package, which is referenced in the message, appears on the package list, either explicitly or through a requires clause of another unit appearing on the package list, but cannot be found by the compiler.

The solution to this problem is to ensure that the DCP file for the named package is in one of the units named in the library path.

Start a new project (in XE7) and drop some Indy components, same as the ones you are importing from D7, and hit run, does it compile successfully?

Also you need to keep in mind that D7 uses Indy version 9 (by default, unless you upgraded), and XE versions come with updated version of Indy 10. And there are differences you might need to correct later after fixing the above error, if any.
