Summary0002988: Installation Bugs in Delphi6PE
DescriptionI tried to install JVCL in Delphi6 there where MUCH Problems:
-Installer threw Just errors while Compiling
-Manuel compiling: BUGS
 -Much Units p.e. jvInterpreter use unit DB. But DB isn't supported in D6PE
 -jvInterpreter also uses BDE, also not suported

 -jvXPBar line 118. " dxColor_FocusedFrameColorXP = clHotLight;" clHotlight not
 -jvParameterlist line 847: " on E: EVariantTypeCastError do"
  -> EVariantTypeCastError not found - fixed with EVariantError
   "property ColorMenuHighlight: TColor index COLOR_MENUHILIGHT read GetColor write SetColor stored False;
    property ColorMenuBar: TColor index COLOR_MENUBAR read GetColor write SetColor stored False;"
  -> COLOR_MENUHIGHLIGHT and COLOR_MENUBAR not found . i don't the hell know why. because they are declared in the same file??? Replaced with 29 and 30. works
TagsNo tags attached.

Are you sure you activated the DelphiPersonal $DEFINE in the include file?

That is something the installer should do itself because it hides this DEFINE in the option dialog.

What does the Installer say while trying to compile the packages about the used Delphi version? Does it say "Delphi 6 Personal Editon" or something else on the compile progress screen?

The funny thing is, that this Installer showed "Dephi 6 (STD)" not Personal. And it additionaly hided that define.
My Delphi Version is 6.0 PE (Build 6.240) Update 2.
But an english Delphi with an german update. (I think)
Also I use gexperts, but I don't think this is important.

While manual compiling I didn't set any defines. (sometimes I'm silly).
But I used the D6PER .bpl
And addtional, these "use DB" Bugs where Not in {$IFDEF}/{ENDIF}

That's normal if they are not ifdefed, the files are not even part of the packages, should you define $DELPHI_PERSONNAL and regenerate the packages, which is what the installer does.
Further to this, the bpg file includes the packages in d6per, specifically crafted to not include any DB related stuff.
But first, sort out your upgrades, a German one on an English Delphi is a recipe for disaster.
