Calc tab not showing in designer

edited July 2011 in End User
Using Delphi XE

Previously I was using RB12.04 professional.
Just purchasesd and installed RB12.05 enterprise

However the "Calc" tab is not showing in the designer.
This is why we bought enterprise.

I assumed it was because I was not using raIDE.
However when I add this in the uses clause I get:

[DCC Fatal Error] daGlobalSQL.pas(49): F2051 Unit raIDE was compiled with a
different version of ppDsgner.TppDesignerWindow

as raIDE did not come as a ".pas" it came as a ".dcu"

What to do?

Kind Regards,

    The issue with the calc tab not showing was the missing "raIDE".

    However The issue with the "different version"

    is to do with the pre distributed run time packages.

    These need to be compiled during installation and not predistributed.

    It would also be good if there was a "groupproj" file which could be used to
    compile all runtime packages.

    The RB packages are compiled here, when we build the installation. The one
    exception is the RB TeeChart packages, which are compiled during
    installation. This is not going to change going forward.

    The source code to the 'ra' prefixed units are part of the run-time Pascal
    environment (RAP). The source code to RAP is not distributed.

    We do not provide tech support for re-building the RB packages. (Internally
    here we use an automated build process, there is no groupproj file.)
