From Getit in 10.2 I installed LockBox. I have projects run with components add under older versions. I need to add a component to a new project and can not fine the Lockbox tools in the pallet. In older versions of Delphi the tool pallet can be configured I can not find this. The search finds nothing. How do I find it.
Thanks in advance

Just because something is installed doesn't necessarily mean it is
active.

Double-check with the "Component > Install Packages" dialog that the
LockBox package is installed AND enabled while your project is loaded.

The Tool Palette is context-sensitive, it only shows installed + active
components that are appropriate for the current context. For example,
a DataModule designer can only use non-visual components, whereas Form
and Frame designers can use visual components, so the Tool Palette
filters according to what Designer is currently in focus. Also, the
Tool Palette is platform-aware, so it will filter out components that
are not marked as supporting the project's current Target Platform
(Windows, OSX, iOS, Android, etc).

Thanks for your response.
Its Still missing.
I opened the project (Win32)
I located the components in "Component > Install Packages" and checked them (one was unchecked) clicked ok.
Still cant find them.
But I solved the problem I was searching for when using runtime you must add a setting.
