To port from an earlier version to version 8, simply install v8 into
the Delphi/Builder IDE and recompiling your project.
For installation instructions,
please review the included Walk-Throughs which discuss installation.
If upgrading from an earlier version of ProEssentials, first remove the
ProEssentials components from the Delphi/Builder IDE before proceeding.
Printing Logic Needs Changing!
The addition of clipping logic has the potential to break current ProEssentials
implementations which include custom printing logic. In the process of
porting an application to v8 from a much earlier version, you should plan on changing calls of PEresetimage to PEresetimageEx
or disabling clipping by setting DisableClipping
Also, if calling the Windows PlayMetafile api call, it should be replaced with the ProEssentials PEplaymetafile api call.
Custom Parameter Set now Disabled!
NoCustomParms is now by default
set to TRUE. If desired, set this property back to FALSE.
