"One of the things I missed most in Delphi 2005 was the VCL Component Install menu item in the Component menu. For reasons I still don't quite understand, this expert was removed from the IDE. It was a quick way to install a component in the IDE, but since Delphi 2005, you had to manually create or open a package, manually add the component to it and then install it.

That is why I wrote this expert: it replaces the old Install Component expert under the Component menu. It allows you to pick a unit or units to install, to pick in which package it should go, and it opens the package and adds the units to it.

Until I find out how to do that, it will not install the package yet. You'll have to select Install from the context menu of the package, in the Delphi Project Manager."
