Uninstalling previous version of the package

If you have a previous version of the package already installed, you should remove it using the following method.

  1. Open the "Component/Install packages" menu item in Delphi/C++ Builder and remove Alpha packages there
  2. Remove all AlphaControls files in the AlphaControls directory. This directory should be equal to directory which was defined in the Delphi/C++ Builder "Library path" field
  3. Search all acnt*.bpl and acnt*.dcp files and remove them. These files are created in directories which are defined in Delphi/C++ Builder as "BPL output directory" and "DCP output directory" usually
  4. If such packages as AlphaDB or AlphaExtra were installed, then remove them too.


Installing the package in Delphi 5..XE8

  1. Unpack all files in the AlphaControls directory. It is very advisable to unpack each new version to the same path, so it would not produce extra folders with older versions
  2. Folder with components must be registered in Delphi (Tools->Environment Options->Library->Library Path)
  3. Open the run-time package project file (acntX_r.dpk file, X - version of Delphi)*
  4. In the "Project manager" window click the right mouse button and choose the "Build" menu item
  5. Open the design-time package project file (acntX.dpk file)*
  6. In the "Project manager" window click the right mouse button and choose the "Install" menu item
  7. AlphaDB and AlphaExtra packages may be installed like the main AlphaControls package

* If package should be installed in the Delphi and C++Builder at the same time, then on steps 3 and 5 open the "Output - C/C++" page in "Project options" window and set "Generate all C++Builder files (including package libs)" in the "C/C++ Output file generation" field. Full sources of the package are needed.


Installing the package in C++ Builder 6..XE8

  1. Unpack all files in the AlphaControls directory. It is very advisable to unpack each new version to the same path, not to produce extra folders with old versions of files
  2. Folder with components must be registered in + Builder (Tools->Environment Options->C++ Options->Paths and Directories->Library Path)
  3. Open the run-time package project file (acntX_r.cbproj file, X - version of + Builder)*
  4. In the "Project manager" window click the right mouse button and choose the "Make" menu item. If full sources of the package are not exist then do not click the "Build" menu item!
  5. Open the design-time package project file (acntX.cbproj file)*
  6. In the "Project manager" window click the right mouse button and choose the "Install" menu item
  7. AlphaDB and AlphaExtra packages may be installed like the main AlphaControls package

Using of the 64-bit units under Delphi XE2..XE8

  1. Install the package in 32-bit mode as described above. Delphi supports installation of 32-bit packages only
  2. If full sources of the package are available then additional actions are not required. 64-bit units are generated automatically when project is compiling in x64 mode.

    Otherwise, additional precompiled 64-bit units should be downloaded and unpacked to separate folder. And add this folder in the "Tools->Environment Options->Library->Library Path" field for x64 mode.

Problems which occurs while installing and ways for they solving are described at the next page.
