ImageEn

Installation


Generally you should use the ImageEn installer to handle the compilation and installation of the ImageEn packages. However you can also do it manually.

Note: Before compiling ImageEn, remove any old versions:

1. In Delphi, select Component > Install Packages...

2. Remove the "ImageEn Controls" package (also "ImageEn DB Controls" if it exists)


Compiling the ImageEn Packages

1. Select Tools > Options, Library and ensure the ImageEn source files folder is listed in your "Library path". The source files will be located under the folder that you installed ImageEn, e.g.
C:\Program Files (x86)\ImageEn\Source\

2. Open and compile PKIECTRL*.DPK (where * is the version number for your Delphi/C++ builder product, e.g. DPKIECTRL27.BPL for Delphi 10.4 Sydney). The DPK file will be in a folder under the \Source\ with the name of the Delphi version

3. Open and compile DPKIECTRL*.DPK

4. Right-click the DPKIECTRL*.DPK package and click "Install"

Notes:
- If your source files are located under C:\Program Files (x86)\, then you may need to change the folder permissions to allow write access
- You may need to copy all of the files in the \Libs\ sub-folder to the source folder (or add the folder to your library path)
- If you encounter a compilation error, please review the first FAQ item
- If you use the legacy ImageEn DB components, repeat step 2 for the PKIEDB*.DPK package, and steps 3-4 for the DPKIEDB*.DPK package
