Component > Install Component

The Install Component wizard allows you to choose a unit or units (.pas or .cpp) to install, either into a new package or into an existing package. Then the wizard opens the package, adds the units to it, and builds and installs the package.

The wizard also supports installing .dcu files (compiled units). These units must be compiled with the same version of the compiler that your IDE uses.
