Do you mean the release notes of IBO?

I am not familiar with the _CXE package files. Are these files you are
creating in order to specifically address things?

What version of IBO sources are you using?
Just recently I discovered I neglected to properly register that class.
Perhaps you should get updated to the very latest sources here.

I do not get such warnings in the regular Delphi XE.

Yes, the port of this and IB_Import.pas are yet unfinished.

As you know, I am unfamiliar with anything specific to C++. Please let me
know what you discover here.

Hmmm... I did recently make a change to the ExtractFieldsIntoList() routine.
I wonder if this affecting things.

Did you install this package after compiling it?
Its sole job is to provide property editors.

I hope I can help you work through these issues.
