Linker error when installing RChart


Question:

I followed the installation instructions but got a linker error when installing RChart:

[Linker Err] Undefined symbol Rcbakbmp::Register[] __fastcall referenced ....
[Linker Err] Undefined symbol Rccommon::Register[] __fastcall referenced .....

What's wrong ?

Answer:

Previous versions of RChart (earlier than release 4.00) needed two additional files, RCBAKBMP and RCCOMMON, which contained some basic routines and declarations. These files are not for VCL installation. The only purpose for these files was to circumvent the 64k restrictions of Delphi 1.0. Release 4.00 and higher of RChart does no longer support Delphi 1.0 and thus does not need these files anymore.

In case you encounter this error (if you use an older version of RChart), you tried to install one of these additional files along with RCHART into the VCL. Do not install them, just copy these files to the library directory of Delphi/C++Builder.
