C++Builder 10.3 Community - How to install Delphi Components

Postby relipse » Thu Mar 26, 2020 10:05 pm

Hi, It's been a while since I coded in BCB but I thought I'd pick it back up.
Anyway, I'm trying to install TCoolTrayIcon but everything is going wrong,
There is CoolTrayIcon_D5.dpk and CoolTrayIcon_D6plus.dpk
But when I go to Components -> Install,
it says There already is a CoolTrayIcon so I don't know what to do, Does anyone have a bcb project pack for this or know what to do?

Don't use older project files in newer compilers. Create new projects and add the existing source files to them as needed.

Umm, use the one that already exists? Or else uninstall that one first before installing a new one.
