Did you download the correct version of the components for your version of Delphi? If the installation of these components failed, what were the error messages telling you? If you are trying to supporting an existing program, have you tried to contact the original developers of that program for source code and documentation? Has you present customer given you any hints as to the next stage if you are unable to support this existing program?

Delphi, it is in an unfortunate position. When Borland lost its way it lost countless customers and countless developers and its credibility fell through the floor. This in turn has the capacity to becomes a nightmare in terms of maintaining existing customers' software.

You have a choice to muddle on the best you can or suggest to the customer that the only solution is to replace these problematic programs with current development techniques and current development products.

As source code for many Delphi and C++Builder components were never released, and original developers of these components are no longer available for one reason or another, leaves you with effectively one conclusion - namely - to start afresh with new. But if starting anew is not an option, you could try utility programs such as Resource Hacker/[^] and the hacker's (read Cracking) "w32dsm89" programs to give you hints of what the program and its supporting DLLs do, but that is potentially a very hard and very time consuming thing to do and thus far too expensive to perform. Please note, using cracking programs such as "w32dsm89" I personally do not recommend, it could get you into trouble!
