When Delphi is missing the `ActiveX` items in the `File -> New` dialog

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/03/29

Marco Cantú posted the below solution when ActiveX is missing in your File -> New dialog which I’ve paraphrased:

OK, you can try this.

  1. Close RAD Studio/Delphi.
  2. Open the registry editor.
  3. Under HKEY_CURRENT_USER, open the Known IDE Packages\Delphi — that is something like HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Embarcadero\BDS\18.0\Known IDE Packages\Delphi
  4. Search for the delphicompro240.bpl, entry
  5. Edit it: remove the __ (double-underscore) pre-pended to the value (Untitled). In other word, change “__(Untitled)” into “(Untitled)“.
  6. Close registry editor.
  7. Open the IDE.

I ran it it recently and was glad this worked.
