Hi All,

I'm sure this is a really stupid question, but I've been going around for
hours trying to do this and I cannot get it to work.

I'm running Delphi 5 and I want to install Indy.  I have installed Delphi
fresh on a new computer, I have installed nothing else into Delphi and now
I'm trying to install Indy.  If I download the installer from the Atozed
website, I get a message telling me that filectrl is used in vclx50 and so
Indy doesn't install right.  I saw that some people have had this problem
before and the suggestion was to download the latest snapshot from the dev
site and install that.  So I've tried to do that (following the
Indy10Install instructions) and on step 3.1 I get the message "Entry point
not located idGlobal@IsNumeric$qqrxl in IndySystem50.bpl"!

Please help! What does this mean, and how to I solve it?  I only want to go
back to using Indy as I have been for sometime absolutely fine (damn that
great idea to get a new PC!)

Many thanks in advance,

Neil.
