Not "known", so far, i.e. you're the first. V.4.5Ai release version (the
one referred to on the website, which is not necessarily the one you have)
installs properly here in D7 on Win2K but I needed to add the IBO root path
to my conditionals. I had different path problems with some of the betas.
I suspect you are possibly looking at some kind of path problem, too, but
exactly what I can't guess. I understand from Jason that the installer
tries to be intelligent about the paths by looking at the IDE settings for
BPLs, etc.

If there was a D9 bug, though, it would be entirely consistent with Borland
release history. I remember that "path-finding" problems showed up with
various versions and editions of Delphi over the years. Despite two
patches, Delphi 4 never got it right and refused to find design-time BPLs
for 3rd-party components anywhere except the system directory. The initial
release of D6 had a path-finding quirk as well...
