Cannot Drop Label Component On Report

edited December 2014 in End User
ReportBuilder 7x and Delphi 7

While running a program and in the designer, clicking on the label
component (or any component) and then clicking on the report does not
result in the label appearing in the report.

Is there a setting that causes this behaviour to fail?

I can't understand why this is happening as it does not appear to be a
problem with other programs.

    Hi Frederick,

    Please check the build number of your version of ReportBuilder and be
    sure it is 337. If not, please uninstall your current version,
    re-download ReportBuilder using the same link and re-install.

    You can find the build number by selecting the Help | About option in
    the designer main menu.

    Hi Nico,


    I don't see a build number. The version is 7.04.

    Hi Frederick,

    I apologize, I did not see that you were using RB 7.x. There are no
    known issues like this with RB 7.04. My suggestion is to completely
    uninstall ReportBuilder, perform a corrupt install clean-up, then
    re-install and see if that helps. You might also try installing RB on
    another machine and see if you get the same behavior.

    Moving forward we hope you will consider upgrading to the latest version
    of ReportBuilder. ReportBuilder 7 is now 12 years old and is no longer
    actively supported.

    Hi Nico,


    Thanks for the suggestions. The weird thing is using the same Delphi
    and RB installation for another project does not result in the
    inability to drop components. I thought that there may be some setting
    that was turned off.


    I have plans to do so but the current exchange rate is not favourable
    and compatibility with existing RB 7 templates is something I will
    have to test out as well.

    Regards,
    Frederick
