I'm guessing that you are using D5 Pro edition, yes? I'm building a
dossier of failed installations on the Pro editions and would appreciate
your contacting me privately to help get this sorted so I can add a special
addendum to the install docs for Pro users. Since D4 Pro and D6 Pro both
suffer from this same path problem, it would be surprising if D5 Pro
somehow missed out.

First advice is: complete your Library path - you'll need both the DCP
path and the BPL path in there as input locations, as well as in their
output locations. You may or may not also need to add all three locations
to the Browsing path.

And do read the installation text very carefully. There's very little in
there that is for decoration only.

The good news is that, once you get it right, it will be a breeze every time.
