Using D2007, first create a new empty package and let it open in the project 
manager (or just open an existing packge). Then import the ActiveX and 
you'll see a new checkbox allowing you to add the created component in the 
package you've opened.

For the palette page where the component is installed, search in the 
generated source code for the Register procedure. You'll see the page. You 
can edit it (but be aware that re-importing will overwrite your changes).

Subject: Installing third part ActiveX controls in Delphi 2007


> Hi,

> I'm having a problem installing an activeX control like DLPortio.ocx
