Yes...I figured that installed higher version of delphi prior to
older versions would be a conflict. When I rebuilt my machine I was
sure to install D5, D7, and then D8.

Like I said everything work fine. Then yesterday I tried to open

removed the packages and tried to reinstall them and am getting this

I will try to hack the library path and see if it gets me anywhere.
