What compiler are you using? I knew vaguely that Indy theoretically supports
others but I always thought it was primarily aimed at delphi.

You need to compile the .dpk files - IF you are able to compile using the
delphi compiler then you will find the instructions on I know they're not the best but I've not had time
to rewrite them with screenshots yet - I keep meaning to get around to it.
I'm one of a small group of Indy webmasters but I don't actually work on the
Indy sockets code which is why my advice is somewhat vague.

They are included in the zip. There was also last time I looked various .bat
files for the job too. Unfortunately I can't comment on the BCB side of
things though.

You might have better luck on - Point your reader there
and look for the appropriate winsock group for your language. Few Indy
people visit this group these days..
