Conversion to Delphi 6: Missing unit Proxies.pas

Question:

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

uses DsgnIntf;

with

uses DesignIntf, DesignEditors;

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

Answer:

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?
