Missing dclusr50.bpl

Thank you,   Esther.
 Item 1 and 2 are both true bec. ..delphi5\Project\BPL does not exist and
dclusr50.bpl does not exist.  I created .delphi5\Project\BPL, and retried.;
same result.  I think dclusr50.bpl is created by the compile (like a ddl),
but the
compile fails, although dclusr50.dpk does exist.  other .BPL's exist in
\Bin.  So maybe I messed up a path name??

I gave up patching and just reinstalled Delphi 5.0 compiler, and Update 1,
and used Component|Install Component into existing pkg, |Compile, and it
created the .bpl, and all is right with the Delphi world.  Still don't know
what I did to foul it, but it seems happy now.  All the following were
Delphi5\Projects\Bpl\dclusr50.bpl ,
Delphi5\Projects\Bpl\dclusr50.dcp , and

"Ours is not to reason  why, ours is to do or die." or something like that.
