You're doesn't...but a few editions and versions of Delphi
display this bug, unfortunately.

The next step you can try is to uninstall all of the packages from the
Components...Packages dialog and then "reinstall" them by browsing for them
from the dialog. After doing that, shut down Delphi and restart it.

The "last resort" if you have one of these rogue versions is to simply copy
the BPL and DCP files into the System directory once they are
compiled. :-( You'll find if you get this problem with one package,
you'll have the same one with them all.

I'm curious as to whether you applied the Delphi 7 Update pack...
