Subject RE: [IBO] Problems with 4.2.I release?
Author Thomas Steinmaurer

I am (was) in the same situation with people using my IBOTST
Extension Package with IBO 4.2.I and Delphi 6.

For example, I have some IBO packages (IBO40CRT, ...)
in the required section of *my* delphi packages.

One compiles now IBO 4.2.I under Delphi 6, AFAIK the
compiled packages are called IBO40CRT_D6, ...

Afterwards the compilation of the IBOTST extension
package compiles the IBO D7 packages, because the IBOTST
package source requires e.g. IBO40CRT, which isn't available,
due to the "_D6" prefix, so the D7 packages are compiled

Appending the "_D6" prefix for the required IBO packages
in the IBOTST package source solved the problem under
Delphi 6.
