Note for users Delphi 5/6/7:
RxLibrary is not directly designed for this Delphi versions. When you will
want compile source code in this versions of Delphi, you have to open all
units contain form (*.dfm) and resave it for resource compatibility(crash
prevent IDE) before rebuild and install into IDE. Some functionality will be lost.

Note for users Delphi XE2/XE3/XE4/XE5/XE6/XE7/XE8 (64 bit.ver ):
This source code is 64 bit ready but untested. BDE packs must be removed from 64 bit project as unsuported technology.

This source code is CBuilder (2006/2007) ready but uncomplete and untested yet.
