Class TDBNavigator not found Delphi 5

Class TDBNavigator not found Delphi 5

Class TDBNavigator not found Delphi 5

I just installed Delphi 5 on a new Win 7 O/S.
Then openned up a Project with a single form. when I
open the form "npl2", I get the following message:
Class TDBNavigator not found.

Here is my uses block:
SysUtils, WinTypes, WinProcs, Messages, Classes, Graphics, Controls,
StdCtrls, Forms, DBCtrls, DB, DBGrids, DBTables, Grids, ExtCtrls,
Dialogs, Mask, FileCtrl, mlb2, mlbc ;

Another odd thing I noticed...on the ide component toolbar it only shows a standard component (with only one object) and the MLB component...that's it!
Any ideas?
thanks in advance, Greg

RE: Class TDBNavigator not found Delphi 5


Try opening Delphi, close all projects, click the Component menu, then click Install Packages.
Select all the items in the panel Design Packages, click OK, then close and reopen the Delphi and check if the other tabs of components are displayed.

note: the above procedure may be slightly different in version 5

Hope this helps.


RE: Class TDBNavigator not found Delphi 5

i tried your suggestion but it did not work. I think it has something to do with Win7.
I decided to install D5 on Windows2003 server and I got all the default components showing now. Then I opened my old delphi 5 project. I can see all my objects now, good, however I still can not compile source.

At this point, I might try to Uninstall D5 from the Win7 machine and try a reinstall.

OK, I just un-installed D5 from my Win7 pc.
Then, I reinstalled it in a different directory(not program files\...
That solved the problem!
