delphi 6 was quite buggy, are u sure u have *every* ever issued update and hotfix for D6 downloaded and installed?

"\jvcl\run\jedi\ folder " is very weird! how can Delphi even pretend to have that file ??? looks like D6 bug.


can u install into D6 the same version of JCL/JVCL you installed to 2010 successfully ? from clean empty folders ?


GetCmdLineArg, according to google, is either standard fn from StrUtils or Rx/JVCL-added.
Look if Delphi 6 has this function in one of its standard units.

You can use grep.exe for it, or find.exe or Delphi IDE "find in files" menu or find files function of programs like unreal commander / total commander / file commander etc. Search Delphi sources folder, then JCL and JVCL

This function does probably exist in your Delphi.
If not, then JvJCLUtils should declare it if you have correct setting correct condition compilatin variables for D6.


Numb2USA was definitely one of RxLib functions.
It would not be in Delphi RTL and frankly it is very obsolete.

Again like above find where it is declared in JVCL and why the declaration is prohibited, probably $IfDef'ed due to failure with or whatever

My Delphi6 is fully updated (D6_Upd2_Pro.exe; del6_pro_rtl2.exe;

I tried an older version:
Same problem, JVCL try to install in Embarcadero RAD Studio 2010

I found a workaround to avoid the error:
- I renamed C:\Archivos de programa\Embarcadero to C:\Archivos de programa\XX
- I installed JVCL3.45 without problems
- And again C:\Archivos de programa\XX to C:\Archivos de programa\Embarcadero
All is working fine now
