OK I need to check back through ALL of the versions since BCB6 to pick up the
change notes ....

FIXED - vcljpg.bpi -> vclimg.bpi ( NOT as flagged in various update pages )

Added AcntMan package to .pas file, and vclactnband.bpl to allow to compile
Install gives @Ibodataset@TIBOWideStringField@ could not be located in

Not sure if these are caused by needing to set the default character type in C++
'mode' - can't see where the problem is at the moment

Cleared when the vcljpg.bpi -> vclimg.bpi switch was made.

The next problem is more critical, and I have been here before! IBO40EDT_CXE is
compiling OK, but when I try and add an ib_session object to an empty form the
color entries are converted back to numbers and no TColorList is presented to
chenge them.
ib_connection alos fails when trying to select edit with an error in a color value.

I drop EDT, but the color dropdowns are still not present, so that is a function
of the normal comonent loading that I'm not understanding?

The GOOD news is that I have actually compiled a working program by hand editing
the components ... something I did not manayge with the previous builds ... so
I'm sure this is just a matter of something not being set right.
