Installing packages.

Automatic installing:

Run Installer\EhLibInstaller.exe program from EhLib archive to install library in Delphi/C++ Builder IDE automatically. In time of installation the program creates folder, copies files, compile required packages and registers packages in the IDE.

Manual installing:

Here is described how to install the library in RAD Studio XE5. Installation in other versions of Delphi is performed by analogy. Create, if necessary, a new folder "EhLib" folder with a Delphi (for example, C:\ RADStudio\12.0\Components\EhLib). If you EhLib version with source code then copy to this folder files from “Common”, “RADStudioXE5” and "LangResources\Res" of archive EhLib. If you have a version of EhLib without source or evaluation-version, then copy the files to this folder from the folder <EhLib Archive>\RADStudioXE5\Win32\Release. The library without source code in the folder <EhLib Archive>\Common Files with the extension are Int. These files contain the original interface of the pas file libraries. These files are conveniently used as documentation. By default, EhLib contains resource files for the English language. If you need a different language, you can replace the original resource files (which are already in the C:\RADStudio\12.0\Components\EhLib) files that are in the appropriate subfolder LangResources and change them if necessary. Uninstall previous or evaluation version of EhLib Delphi IDE. Remove or move to another folder, the following files to prevent this crossing and the new version EhLib. Delete all files that start with EhLib ___. Bpl, DclEhLib ____.Bpl, EhLib ___.Bpi, DclEhLib ____. Pbi folder C: \Users\Public\Documents\RAD Studio\12.0\Bpl\, C:\Users\Public\Documents\RAD Studio\12.0\Dcp\ and C:\Users\Public\Documents\RAD Studio\12.0\Dcp\.

Start Delphi and open (File\Open ...) project group EhLibProjGroup190.groupproj. Compile all group packages (Project \ Build All Projects).

Install all the packages in the IDE, which begin on Dcl______. To do this, use the mouse to select the package of Install.

Components EhLib appear in the pages of EhLib Controls and EhLib Components component palette.
