Hello,

I have enclosed an article from our Knowledge Base about Express reporting
files missing when trying to add ReportSmith to an installation.

=====================================================================
Troubleshooting: Disk Builder Cannot Find Certain DLLs Needed for
ReportSmith Objects
=====================================================================

This document relates to the following InstallShield Express product(s):
Professional, Borland Delphi 2.0
Target Platform(s): Windows 95, Windows NT 3.51 (Intel)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------
ISSUE:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------
During the disk building process, Disk Builder reports that certain DLLs
needed for ReportSmith Objects cannot be found.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------
DISCUSSION:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------
If you select the ReportSmith object, Express will automatically add files
to your setup which you may not have installed with the Developer Suite of
Borland Delphi 2.0. When you run the Disk Builder, Express may not be able
to find some or all of the following files:

Rs_dblib.dll
Rs_odbc.dll
Rs_gup.dll
Rs_idapi.dll
Rs_ora7.dll
Rs_sybas.dll

These DLLs are each for specific database connections from ReportSmith
(Rs_dblib for SQL Server, Rs_odbc for ODBC, Rs_gup for SQL Base, etc.), and
are only included with Delphi 2.0 Client/Server.

If your application runs on the system from which you are creating your
Express project, and one or more of these files is not installed on your
system, then your application does not need to run against this connection,
and you don't need to include the file(s) in your setup.

You will need to go back to the Groups and Files dialog and delete the
appropriate file from the ReportSmith Viewer Files group.
