1. Download "AppControlsCB6.zip" file.  
2. Create "..\Lib\AppControls" directory.  
3. Unzip files and copy them to "..\Lib\AppControls".  
4. Start C++ Builder 6 IDE.  
5. Open "AppControlsCB6.bpk" file.  
6. Install package to the components palette ("Install" button).

Source Code
1. Create "..\Lib\AppControls" directory.  
2. Unzip files and copy them to "..\Lib\AppControls".  
3. Start Delphi / C++ Builder IDE.  
4. Select "File | Open" menu item and point to "AppControlsDx.dpk" or "AppControlsCBx.bpk" ('x' is the version of Delphi or BCB).  
Note: Delphi 2 users please select "Component | Install..." menu item, add "_AACReg.pas" file and rebuild the library.  
5. Click "Compile" button in the package box to compile source files, then "Install" button to install it to the component palette.  


Note for C++ Builder
iiwarning When you are using the Internet components (i.e: acHTTP, acAutoUpgrader, acSendMail, acIPEdit etc, or just functions from acInet module), please don't forget to add INET.LIB to your project (it can be found at "CBuilder\Lib" directory). This file contains the references to routines from WinInet.dll. So if you got linker error such like following:  
[Linker Error] Unresolved external 'InternetCrackUrlA' referenced from  
C:\PROGRAM FILES\BORLAND\CBUILDER5\PROJECTS\LIB\APPCONTROLSCB5.LIB|acInet.pas  
please don't worry and be aware that InternetCrackUrlA are used to parse the URL (split URL to domain name, port, document name etc). To solve this problem, just add INET.LIB to your project (use "Project | Add to project" menu item in C++ Builder IDE).  
Remark: In C++ Builder 6 and higher add WININET.LIB instead of INET.LIB.
