Update of Delphi Library Path

Make sure your Delphi Library Path contains only one path pointing to X-Files Components or X-DBGrid Component package.

  • The default path for X-Files Components is:
    $(DELPHI)\XFiles - for Delphi 5, 6, 7
    $(BCB)\XFiles - for C++Builder 5, 6
    $(BDS)\XFiles - for Delphi 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, XE, XE2, ..., XE8
    $(BDS)\XFiles - for C++Builder 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, XE, XE2, ..., XE8
  • The default path for X-DBGrid Component is:
    $(DELPHI)\XDBGrid - for Delphi 5, 6, 7
    $(BCB)\XDBGrid - for C++Builder 5, 6
    $(BDS)\XDBGrid - for Delphi 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, XE, XE2, ..., XE8
    $(BDS)\XDBGrid - for C++Builder 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, XE, XE2, ..., XE8

When you install the new package, the new installer can automatically change path in the Library Path for this reason.

Installation of Context Help File

The installer can automatically install Context Help File, then you don't need to do it manualy. If your OpenHelp can't find any topic from X-Files Components Reference file, you should:

  1. Select the Help | Customize... menu item to display OpenHelp window.
  2. Add the $(Delphi)\Help\XFiles.cnt file to the Contents page.
  3. Add the $(Delphi)\Help\XFiles.hlp file to the Index page.
  4. Add the $(Delphi)\Help\XFiles.hlp file to the Link page.
  5. Click on File | Save Project to save your changes.

You may need to remove any indexes you do not use because default help indexing is near the limits of Microsoft's WinHelp. If you experience an empty list on the Index tab page of WinHelp, this indicates you need to remove some files from OpenHelp.

Delphi 2005 and higher uses help files in HtmlHelp format. You can't integrate WinHelp XFiles.hlp file with HtmlHelp, but you can still open XFiles.hlp file from Start Menu Folder, you have selected during installation.
