  • ProfileKit 3

Summary

ProfileKit 3 includes VCL14 to support C++Builder and Delphi from Embarcadero.

More Information

Since VCL component libraries are release dependent, you need to ensure you select the appropriate VCL version of C++Builder and Delphi that you use.

For C++Builder, select your version using the following table.

C++Builder ReleaseVCL Version
C++Builder 5VCL5
C++Builder 6VCL6
C++Builder 2006 (Borland Developer Studio 2006)VCL10
C++Builder 2007 (RAD Studio 2007)VCL11
C++Builder 2009 (RAD Studio 2009)VCL12
C++Builder 2010 (RAD Studio 2010)VCL14
C++Builder XE (RAD Studio XE)VCL15

Configure your C++Builder system to use the Chant ProfileKit VCL Component Library with the following steps:

  1. copy the DCProfileKit.DLL, profilekit3.bpl, and profilekit3.res files from the Program Files\Chant\ProfileKit 3\Win32 Developer\CBuilderVCL\VCLX\bin directory where X is the VCL version to your Embarcadero (CodeGear, Borland) CBuilder bin directory (e.g., C:\Program Files\Borland\CBuilderX\bin directory where X is the CBuilder version, or to the BDS bin directory C:\Program Files\CodeGear\RAD Studio\BDS\X.0\bin or C:\Program Files\Embarcadero\RAD Studio\BDS\X.0\bin where X is the version number);
  2. copy the profilekit3.bpi, profilekit3.lib, and tchantpm.res files from the Program Files\Chant\ProfileKit 3\Win32 Developer\CBuilderVCL\VCLX\lib directory where X is the VCL version to your Embarcadero (CodeGear, Borland) CBuilder lib directory (e.g., C:\Program Files\Borland\CBuilderX\lib directory where X is the CBuilder version, or to the BDS lib directory C:\Program Files\CodeGear\RAD Studio\BDS\X.0\lib, C:\Program Files\Embarcadero\RAD Studio\BDS\X.0\lib, or C:\Program Files\RAD Studio\Embarcadero\BDS\X.0\lib\win32\release where X is the version number);
  3. copy the chantpm.hpp file from the Program Files\Chant\ProfileKit 3\Win32 Developer\CBuilderVCL\VCLX\Include\Vcl directory where X is the VCL version to your Embarcadero (CodeGear, Borland) CBuilder Vcl directory (e.g., C:\Program Files\Borland\CBuilderX\Include\Vcl directory where X is the CBuilder version, or to the BDS bin directory C:\Program Files\CodeGear\RAD Studio\BDS\X.0\Include\Vcl, C:\Program Files\Embarcadero\RAD Studio\BDS\X.0\Include\Vcl, or C:\Program Files\Embarcadero\RAD Studio\BDS\X.0\include\windows\vcl where X is the version number);
  4. install the Chant ProfileKit 3 VCL components:
    1. select the CBuilder Components Install Packages menu item;
    2. click the add button;
    3. locate the profilekit3.bpl located in your Embarcadero (CodeGear, Borland) CBuilder lib directory (e.g., C:\Program Files\Borland\CBuilderX\lib directory where X is the CBuilder version or the BDS lib directory C:\Program Files\CodeGear\RAD Studio\BDS\X.0\lib, C:\Program Files\Embarcadero\RAD Studio\BDS\X.0\lib, or C:\Program Files\RAD Studio\Embarcadero\BDS\X.0\lib\win32\release where X is the version number); and
    4. click the OK button.

C++Builder VCL sample projects are installed at [My] Documents\Chant ProfileKit 3\CBuilderVCL\VCLx where x is the VCL version compatible with your C++Builder version.

For Delphi, select your version using the following table.

Delphi ReleaseVCL Version
Delphi 7VCL7
Delphi 2005VCL9
Delphi 2006 (Borland Developer Studio 2006)VCL10
Delphi 2007 (RAD Studio 2007)VCL11
Delphi 2009 (RAD Studio 2009)VCL12
Delphi 2010 (RAD Studio 2010)VCL14
Delphi XE (RAD Studio XE)VCL15

Configure your Delphi system to use the Chant ProfileKit VCL Component Library with the following steps:

  1. copy the DCProfileKit.DLL file from the Program Files\Chant\ProfileKit 3\Win32 Developer\DelphiVCL\bin directory to your Embarcadero (CodeGear, Borland) Delphi bin directory (e.g., C:\Program Files\Borland\DelphiX\bin directory where X is the Delphi version, or to the BDS bin directory C:\Program Files\CodeGear\RAD Studio\BDS\X.0\bin or C:\Program Files\Embarcadero\RAD Studio\BDS\X.0\bin where X is the version number);
  2. copy the ProfileKit VCL files from the Program Files\Chant\ProfileKit 3\Win32 Developer\DelphiVCL\VCLX\lib directory where X is the VCL version to your Embarcadero (CodeGear, Borland) Delphi lib directory (e.g., C:\Program Files\Borland\DelphiX\lib directory where X is the Delphi version, or to the BDS lib directory C:\Program Files\CodeGear\RAD Studio\BDS\X.0\lib, C:\Program Files\Embarcadero\RAD Studio\BDS\X.0\lib, or C:\Program Files\RAD Studio\Embarcadero\BDS\X.0\lib\win32\release where X is the version number);
  3. install the Chant ProfileKit 3 VCL components:
    1. select the Delphi Components Install Packages menu item;
    2. click the add button;
    3. locate the profilekit3.bpl located in your Embarcadero (CodeGear, Borland) Delphi lib directory (e.g., C:\Program Files\Borland\DelphiX\lib directory where X is the Delphi version, the BDS lib directory C:\Program Files\RAD Studio\CodeGear\BDS\X.0\lib, C:\Program Files\RAD Studio\Embarcadero\BDS\X.0\lib, or C:\Program Files\RAD Studio\Embarcadero\BDS\X.0\lib\win32\release where X is the version number); and
    4. click the OK button.
