Summary0005632: Major issue with XP Themes that prevented compiling exe's due to unresolved code reference
DescriptionJVCL version build: JVCL340CompleteJCL221-Build3845
IDE: BCB6 Enterprise

Compiled with Themes Support (I have Mike Lishki's Theme support installed)

Single error occurs on installation:

[Compiling: JvRuntimeDesignC60.bpl]
Borland Delphi Version 14.0
Copyright (c) 1983,2002 Borland Software Corporation
C:\JEDI\jvcl\run\JvPropertyStoreEditor.pas(167) Error: Property 'ParentBackground' does not exist in base class
JvRuntimeDesign.dpk(61) Fatal: Could not compile used unit '..\..\run\JvPropertyStoreEditor.pas'

I found this had been reported (for Delphi 6) at the beginning of the year:

where it was reported but possible not resolved.

I would like to upgrade to the latest stable JVCL version for BCB6+ThemeManager, please could you advise.

Thank you.
Steve Cann.

After a break I thought it best to start with a clean slate and go through this step by step. Starting with a new download of the last released complete jcl/jvcl setup 'JVCL340CompleteJCL221-Build3845'.

1. started with a clean BCB6 setup (with all updates).
2. installed the above jcl then jvcl without themeing - this all works.

1. back to the clean BCB6.
2. install the above jcl
3. install thememanager
4. modify thememanagerC6 files as per release notes: Carmelo Viavattene
5. install the above jvcl with themeing enabled - get this error: fatal: JvCore.dpk(43): Required package 'ThemeManagerC6' not found.

I have double and triple checked the installation of the above steps and for the correct location of all the thememanagerC6 files, I cannot see why this error is occurring.

Look for the ThemeManagerC6.dcp file on your hard drive and make sure the folder it resides in is in your installation search path.
If not, add it and you should be sorted

Thanks for your reply.
The reason it doesn't seem to make sense is because I had already placed these files in a dir that I assumed to be a member of the installation search path: C:\Program Files\Borland\CBuilder6\Projects\Bpl\ThemeManagerC6.dcp.
Along with ThemeManagerC6.bpl/bpi/lib and ditto with ThemeManagerC6D files.

Where is the setup getting the search path dirs from?

Since my original post was a while ago now, should I be using a more recent build?
