2. Package names
TurboPack Essentials package names have the following form:
- EssentialsDR.bpl (Delphi Runtime)

The runtime package contains the core functionality of the product and is not installed into the IDE. The designtime package references the runtime package, registers the components, and contains property editors used in the IDE.
TurboPack Essentials is available via the GetIt Package Manager where you can quickly and easily install and uninstall it.
To manually install TurboPack Essentials into your IDE, take the following steps:
Unzip the release files into a directory (e.g., d:\essence).
Start RAD Studio.
Add the source subdirectory (e.g., d:\essence\source) to the IDE's library path. For CBuilder, add the hpp subdirectory (e.g., d:\essence\source\hpp\Win32\Release) to the IDE's system include path.
Open & compile the runtime package specific to the IDE being used.
Open & install the designtime package specific to the IDE being used. The IDE should notify you the components have been installed.
