You are scaring me Helen!
I don't do "refresh" reinstall when updating IBO, and it seems to work (you could say "you are lucky", but I'm usually not, so...).
I usually:
Download the IBO last release
Unpack in a temp folder
Copy my \delphi6\IBO folder in a safe place, since there are usually some patches I made and my UpdateWorkBar that I don't want to loose ;)
Copy temp files over IBO directory, overwriting existing ones.
Check about my patches included or not, and when not, patch the new code (thanks to WinMerge, it's great)
Run Delphi, load IBO4_D6.bpg, and do a "build all projects"
Quid Delphi
Reload Delphi and compile my app, crossing my fingers ;)
Time ago I tried a "refresh" install, was a nightmare! Maybe I followed the wrong sequence, but loading Delphi I received lots of messages of missing components, and so on.
Why should my way of doing things fail?
