Question: I cant seem to install FR3 trial (or Basic, Standard, Professional, Enterprise) when using TeeChart Pro 6.... How do I do it? I'm not using the standard Teechart that came with delphi 6. (How setup FastReport 3 to Delphi Personal?)

Answer:

Solutions for install of the FastReport with TeeChart Pro 4.5, Pro 5.5, Pro 6 and Delphi Personal.

1. Install with Delphi Personal Edition Open in text editor "FastReport 3\Source\frxReg.inc" file ("FastReport 3\Lib\frxReg.inc" for FastReport Basic and Standart) Uncomment line {$DEFINE NODB}

Example:

1
2
//------------------- Delphi personal (with no DB components) -------
{$DEFINE NODB} 

2. Save file and follow to step 5.

3. Install with TeeChart Pro 4.5, Pro 5.5, Pro 6 Open in text editor "FastReport 3\Source\frxReg.inc" ("FastReport 3\Lib\frxReg.inc" for FastReport Basic and Standart) Comment line {$DEFINE TeeChartStd} Uncomment line with TeeChart version dependency ({$DEFINE TeeChart45}, {$DEFINE TeeChart55}, {$DEFINE TeeChart6})

Example for TeeChart Pro 6:

//------------------- TeeChart component ---------------------------- 
//{$DEFINE TeeChartStd} 
//------------------- TeeChart Pro 4.5 component -------------------- 
// If you have TeeChart 4.5, uncomment the following line: 
//{$DEFINE TeeChart45} 
//------------------- TeeChart Pro 5.5 component -------------------- 
// If you have TeeChart 5.5, uncomment the following line: 
//{$DEFINE TeeChart55} 
//------------------- TeeChart Pro 6 component ---------------------- 
// If you have TeeChart 6, uncomment the following line: 
{$DEFINE TeeChart6}

 

4. Save file and follow to step 5. 5. Install FastScript and FastReport packages. For FastReport Professional and FastReport Enterprise see steps described in section "Compiling FastReport Pro Edition and Enterprise Edition packages" into "install.txt" file. For FastReport Basic and FastReport Standart installation is similar that package files placed in folder "FastReport 3\Lib".
