TServerSocket and TClientSocket are not installed

Abstract: TServerSocket and TClientSocket are not installed

Question:The TServerSocket and TClientSocket components seem to be missing from my installation of Delphi 7/2005/2006. What happened to them?

Solution: These components were officially deprecated in Delphi 7 and no longer install to the component palette. However, they are still shipped with the product for backwards compatibility. You will need to manually add the dclsockets package to the IDE to use them.

To do this, go to Delphi's main menu and select Component | Install Packages | Add and then browse to:
/bin/dclsockets70.bpl for Delphi 7
/bin/dclsockets90.bpl for Delphi 2005
/bin/dclsockets100.bpl for Delphi 2006
