To whom it may concern...

I've been using Delphi 5 and Delphi 7 ever since I can remember, but recently I had to upgrade to XE6 due to the fact that I want to use SOAP...

Now, my problem is as follow: I am developing an RFID project, which is working beautifully in Delphi 5, but in XE6, I need to bring the component in somehow, AND THAT IS MY PROBLEM!!! I don't know how to. Whatever I try is an epic failure!

I have the TLB as well as the DLL file... I can get the USES list to use it, but whenever I click SAVE, it asks if it can remove it, as the component does not exists. When I run the app, it compiles and run, but when I click the button that will access the routine required, it gives me an ACCESS VIOLATION error....

Kind regards,

Jan.

PS: Any help will be appreciated!

Can this be related to the library import generator bug in IDE inserting NUL byte into the Helpfile: line of the output TLB file?

So you have been stuck for a decade on a single version and have forgotten how to compile and install component packages?
