Just a quick question. Is Delphi 2007 supported by Add-In Express 8.0?

The reason I ask is that we have some customers using a previous version of our software, built in Delphi 2007, and they have upgraded to Office 2016. We have noticed some issues, so hope to resolve these with the Office 2016 support in ADX 8.0.

Our next release of the application has been built in Delphi XE8, and the subsequent one will be built in Seattle XE10. However, it will take time before our customers upgrade to the next release.

I have noticed that we have the Packages for Delphi 2007, but the OLSecManD11.bpl file was not updated during installation. Should I rebuild the OLSecManD11.bpl?

Cheers

Hello Paul,

There's no out-of-the-box support for D2007. But since you have the Premium edition you can build required packages. You need to build run-time packages for 1) Add-in Express, 2) Add-in Express extensions, 3) Security Manager. Then close Delphi, copy the run-time packages to System32 and start Delphi. Finally, you build and install design-time packages for 1) Add-in Express, 2) Add-in Express extensions, 3) Security Manager.

- Start Delphi 2007 via the "Run as administrator" command.‎
- Open adxBuildD11.dpk, adxolBuildD11.dpk and OLSecManD11.dpk project files. Find them in ‎‎{Add-in Express installation folder}\Packages\Delphi2007.‎
- Compile each project.‎
- Close Delphi 2007.‎
- Start Windows Explorer and navigate to {Add-in Express installation folder}\Packages\Delphi2007, ‎copy adxBuildD11.bpl, adxolBuildD11.bpl and OLSecManD11.bpl and paste them to ‎C:\Windows\System32 folder on a 32bit Windows; paste them to C:\Windows\SysWOW64 on ‎Windows 64bit.‎
- Start Delphi 2007 via the "Run as administrator" command.‎
- Open adxWizardD11.dpk, adxolWizardD11.dpk and osmWizardD11.dpk project files. You can find ‎them files in {Add-in Express installation folder}\Packages\Delphi2007.‎
- Compile and install each project.‎
