Summary0005936: JVCL components do not install under Delphi 7 Pro
DescriptionI just downloaded

I unzipped the ZIP, then ran the install.bat files for the jcl and the jvcl. The former installed fine. The latter, simply does not work. Regardless of the components I select to install, the following error occurs during the compilation stage of the installer (see 'additional info')

Someone has a garbage character in the jvcl\run\JvPageSetup.pas file
Additional InformationWindows 7 Ultimate Service Pack 1 (6.1.7601)

most probably not garbage but a Unicode

can u open in some hex viewer the file and see the beginning of it as hex numbers ?

to me this file is not unicode, but mine is fro mSVN not from zip

Most probably You can use notepad to open it and save in ANSI encoding

I don't believe you understand the problem. The INSTALLATION WIZARD generates the error. The installation wizard blows up, so I don't even get a chance to "open the file in some hew viewer."

there is no relation. Installation wizards just registers files in Delphi.

you can always do the same without wizard by standard Delphi ways of installing packages, just you would have to carefully manually set folders and open packages in correct dependency order.

as long as u unpacked zip you can open any file any way you wish.

more so, even wizard is just a PAS-file, that is compiled on request, like the rest of library

This file format problem (UTF8 vs. ANSI) was fixed in svn revision 13108 (2011-09-07)
