TurboPower Orpheus - Installation Problems

I realise this may be old hat to most of you here but I'm trying to
install Orpheus in Delphi 2010 (also very old hat.)

I have downloaded the software from Source Forge and this is what
happens when I try and install Orpheus. I'm using Windows 7 by the way.

The source is in c:\tpower\orpheus\source and the packages in
c:\tpower\orpheus\packages\delphi2010

(a) I've set the Library ->WIn32 options to include the packages and
source directories. I've tried setting the package directory as
c:\tpower\orpheus\packages and c:\tpower\orpheus\packages\delphi2010

(b) I load O408_r.dpk which shows in the Project Manager as
O408_r140.bpl, and build. No errors.

(c) I do the same for O408_d.bpk which shows as O408_d140.bpl - then
build. no errors. When I then right-click on O408_d140.bpl to Install I
get the message:

"Can't load package
c:\tpower\orpheus\packages\delphi2010\%ComponentBin%\O408_d140.bpl. The
specified module could not be found."

This message occurs irrespective of whether I include delphi2010 in the
packages Library path.

I found this folder: Libraries->Documents->RAD Studio->7.0->Bpl which
contains O408_d140.bpl, O408_r140.bpl, O408_bd140.bpl and O408br140.bpl.

I also looked in Tools->Options->Environment Variables. There is a
BDSCOMMONDIR defined which points to c:\users\public\public
documents\RAD studio\7.0\bpl and the .bpl files mentioned above were
contained therein.

I really don't know how to proceed and how to install the Orpheus
components in Delphi. Please don't suggest I upgrade Delphi either :-)

Can anyone please throw any light on this issue

Thanks

Paul

Looks like the package options assume there are two environmental
variables defined: 'ComponentsBin' and 'CompileTo'

You need to either:
1. Define these environmental variables in the Delphi IDE
Tools/Options/Environment Variables;

OR

2. Open the options for each Orpheus package and replace each use of
the environmental variables with your desired paths.

Also you will probably need to find and delete any DCUs, BPLs, etc that
were produced by your previous builds to avoid duplicates in your
system.

HTH.

Thanks for the reply. I have removed 'ComponentsBin' and 'CompileTo'
from the Enviroonment Variables.

I recompiled O408_d.bpk and when I actioned Install I got the large
dialog which lists the packages installed - so success there. However
the Orpheus components do not show up in the Tool Palette despite being
listed in Tools->Options->Component Toolbar.

So how do I get the components into the Tool Palette?

Where exactly should the .bpl and .dcp files be placed? At the moment
they are in the two folders I mentioned above which I assume are
defaults. Can I just define a folder and point to it in Environment
variables?

Thanks

**Below is based upon what I currently believe your layout is.**

Open the D2010 IDE.

Uninstall any Orpheus components.

Close the D2010 IDE.

To avoid duplicate binaries, remove all previously compiled/built
Orpheus DCUs, BPLs and DCPs from the following paths:
BPLs: 'c:\users\public\public documents\RAD studio\7.0\bpl'
DCPs: 'c:\users\public\public documents\RAD studio\7.0\dcp'
DCUs: 'c:\tpower\orpheus\source'

Open the D2010 IDE and the 'Orpheus Delphi 2010.groupproj' from the
'c:\tpower\orpheus\packages\delphi2010' folder.

For each Orpheus package options:
Ensure that you have removed all entries of '$(ComponentsBin)' from the
DCP and Package output directory settings and removed '$(CompileTo)'
from the Unit output directory setting.

Remove any entry of 'c:\tpower\orpheus\packages' and
'c:\tpower\orpheus\packages\delphi2010' from the IDE's Library search
path and ensure that 'c:\tpower\orpheus\source' is included in that
search path.

Build (not compile) the runtime package(s). If no errors, build the
designtime package(s). If no errors, install the designtime package(s).

You can check the location of the BPLs by opening the IDE's
Component/Install Packages... dialog and selecting a design package in
the list. Its path appears above and to the left of the Add..., Remove,
etc buttons.

HTH.

I found this answer on Stack Overflow:

"The Tool Palette is context sensitive. It doesn't display things that
are not relevant to the current state of the IDE. Design-time
components are not relevant to Units, only to the Form Designer. The
Form Designer must be active and focused in order to see components in
the Tool Palette"

So File->Open->New Form makes the components magically appear in the
Palette.

Checking Component->InstallPackages, TurboPower Orpheus design time
package is shown in c:\users\public\documents\RAD
Studio\7.0\bpl\O408_d140.bpl. There is an accompanying folder \dcp
which contains the .dcp files. It seems that might be a default
location. Is there any reason why I should not use this?

No, that location is fine (it's the default when you install Delphi for
'All Users').

I'm sorry that I didn't realise you were not aware of the context
aspect of design time components. I'm glad you got it working.

I recompiled O408_d.bpk and when I actioned Install I got the
large dialog which lists the packages installed - so success
there. However the Orpheus components do not show up in the
Tool Palette despite being listed in Tools->Options->Component
Toolbar.

So how do I get the components into the Tool Palette?

Where exactly should the .bpl and .dcp files be placed? At the
moment they are in the two folders I mentioned above which I
assume are defaults. Can I just define a folder and point to it
in Environment variables?

Thanks

**Below is based upon what I currently believe your layout is.**

Open the D2010 IDE.

Uninstall any Orpheus components.

Close the D2010 IDE.

To avoid duplicate binaries, remove all previously compiled/built
Orpheus DCUs, BPLs and DCPs from the following paths:
BPLs: 'c:\users\public\public documents\RAD studio\7.0\bpl'
DCPs: 'c:\users\public\public documents\RAD studio\7.0\dcp'
DCUs: 'c:\tpower\orpheus\source'

Open the D2010 IDE and the 'Orpheus Delphi 2010.groupproj' from
the 'c:\tpower\orpheus\packages\delphi2010' folder.

For each Orpheus package options:
Ensure that you have removed all entries of '$(ComponentsBin)'
from the DCP and Package output directory settings and removed
'$(CompileTo)' from the Unit output directory setting.

Remove any entry of 'c:\tpower\orpheus\packages' and
'c:\tpower\orpheus\packages\delphi2010' from the IDE's Library
search path and ensure that 'c:\tpower\orpheus\source' is included
in that search path.

Build (not compile) the runtime package(s). If no errors, build
the designtime package(s). If no errors, install the designtime
package(s).

You can check the location of the BPLs by opening the IDE's
Component/Install Packages... dialog and selecting a design
package in the list. Its path appears above and to the left of
the Add..., Remove, etc buttons.

HTH.

I found this answer on Stack Overflow:

"The Tool Palette is context sensitive. It doesn't display things
that are not relevant to the current state of the IDE. Design-time
components are not relevant to Units, only to the Form Designer. The
Form Designer must be active and focused in order to see components
in the Tool Palette"

So File->Open->New Form makes the components magically appear in
the Palette.

Checking Component->InstallPackages, TurboPower Orpheus design time
package is shown in c:\users\public\documents\RAD
Studio\7.0\bpl\O408_d140.bpl. There is an accompanying folder \dcp
which contains the .dcp files. It seems that might be a default
location. Is there any reason why I should not use this?

Thanks
Paul

No, that location is fine (it's the default when you install Delphi
for 'All Users').

I'm sorry that I didn't realise you were not aware of the context
aspect of design time components. I'm glad you got it working.

Cheers,

Thanks for your help. I've not done any serious Delphi development for
about 20 years so I'm a bit rusty :-) and, of course, IDEs have changed.
