Summary0005598: D6 Installation fails with JVCLThemesEnabled in JvExplorerBarItems
DescriptionCannot install latest JVCL under Delphi 6 with "XP Theming" enabled in the JVCL 3.41 installer.

In JvExplorerBarItems.pas I found:


  {$IFDEF JVCLThemesEnabled}
  {$ENDIF JVCLThemesEnabled}
  Math, DateUtils;

There exists no "Themes.pas" in Delphi 6.

Guess it should be:

  {$IFDEF JVCLThemesEnabled}
  {$ENDIF JVCLThemesEnabled}
  Math, DateUtils;


  {$IFDEF JVCLThemesEnabled}
  {$ENDIF JVCLThemesEnabled}
  Math, DateUtils;

TagsNo tags attached.

The readme.htm file says that if you want theming for D6, you MUST install Mike Lischke's ThemeManager package.
Have you done so?

Yes of course. As I said before, there exists no "Themes.pas" in my D6 ENT or in Mike Lischke's Thememanger.

You can find the objects etc. defined in "Themes.pas" from D7 (or higher???) in "ThemeSrv.pas" from ML's ThemeManager. So I think the units definied between
{$IFDEF JVCLThemesEnabled} and {$ENDIF JVCLThemesEnabled} must be changed for D6.

I dont use "XP Theming" in D6 anymore. It was just a test, but maybe other users will have the same problem.

Need to test with D6 + Theming

Hi: just to confirm that this issue still exists as of revision 13104 (Delphi 6) - but I think the source has shifted - although the error I'm getting:

"C:\Program Files\Borland\Delphi6\Source\3rdParty\JEDI\JVCL\run\JvExplorerBarItems.pas(398) Fatal: File not found: 'Themes.dcu'"

...isn't entirely consistent with that I think is the cause. JvExplorerBarItems.pas "uses" JvExplorerBar.pas, and like JvExplorerBar of old, it contains:

{$IFDEF JVCLThemesEnabled}
{$ENDIF JVCLThemesEnabled} its uses clause. Perhaps, as the OP suggested before, this should conditionally be ThemeSrv for <= Delphi6 with ThemeManager installed?

Update: sorry, my mistake, I mis-read the first message - it's very late and I've been trying to get around these little niggly issues for hours.

The installer reports the error quoted in my last message, it doesn't involve JvExplorerBar.pas, I'm not sure how I managed to muddle that up - the problem is with JvExplorerBarItems.pas, and its "uses" of "Themes", which matches no named unit in the standalone version of ThemeManager for Delphi 4-6.

With the benefit of a less sleep addled-mind, I modified JvExplorerBarItems.pas, switching:

397 {$IFDEF JVCLThemesEnabled}
398 Themes,
399 {$ENDIF JVCLThemesEnabled}


397 {$IFDEF JVCLThemesEnabled}
398 JvThemes,
399 {$ENDIF JVCLThemesEnabled} match all other controls, and it then compiled without error.

Changed in SVN.

Please retest

Tested - that compiles without error now, thank you.

That change does not compile with Delphi XE2 now.
I had to change JvThemes to Themes again.

XE2 compilation is restored.
