    Is it possible to manually install new version, without remove the
    older ? I always have problem with dependancy (like ppChrtDP, ppChrt
    ...) when I remove/install new ReportBuilder version.

    Hi Arnaud,

    We do not have a way to manually install ReportBuilder, the installer
    must be used.

    The uninstaller attempts to remove all dependencies before installing a
    new version. Occasionally some packages get left behind causing issues
    during the first run of Delphi after an install.

    Also, the TeeChart packages are built during install so the errors you
    are getting are likely due to an old compiled resources somewhere on
    your hard drive. Try performing a search for any pp* to see if any old
    files are in your project's library path.

    To avoid most issues, start by uninstalling the previous version of RB
    using the Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs. Then open Delphi and be
    sure there are no RB related packages installed into the IDE (Component
    | Install Package... menu option). Finally, install the new version of RB.

    Best Regards,

    Nico Cizik
