Conversion to Delphi 6: Missing unit Proxies.pas

If your application or expert uses designtime information, you have to replace

uses DsgnIntf;


uses DesignIntf, DesignEditors;

But then you will run into an error message 'Cannot find unit Proxies.pas'


The solution is to add DesignIde.dcp to your list of required packages.

You will have to ensure that the run-time package does not require the design-time package(s). This change in Delphi 6 enforces Borland's licence restrictions on designtime editors more strongly, which have been in the license documents since Delphi 3, I believe.

Hi there,
I have encountered the same problem.
here is what happened.
I had a working app and then ticked the option to build with run time packages so that my exe size would come down.
I then added a new designtime component called mxWebUpdate
Then after running the exe on a users computer without delphi. I got a missing rtl70.bpl error message.
After searching the web I discovered that I needed to uncheck the build with run time packages box.
After I did that I had the same series of error messages that you just described.
I have added DesignIde.dcp just like you said but I still get the error message, what am I doing wrong?
