Cannot install in Delphi XE7

Recommended Posts


I used the wonderful ICS suite around 18 or so years ago in Delphi 5 when I worked at my old company.

I recently found it again and downloaded the latest version, but I am failing at the very first hurdle, installing it!


I am using Delphi XE7 Professional edition.


If I try to load the DXe7Install.groupproj project group or if I try to load the packages individually,

starting with IcsVclDXe7Run.dproj then I get this error:

Fatal error -1072896762. The character '<' cannot be used in an attribute value.

Line 277, column 9.


Can anybody help?

I don't see anything wrong in line 277.

Strangely both files have an error at the same line, same column.

Download ICS again and retry.

Hi François 


Thank you - I downloaded version 8.58 direct from your website and it now installs and works perfectly!

The version I had (actually found and downloaded version 8.60 in March) was from


possibly it was a daily build version that was incomplete?

Not sure exactly what the issue was but does not matter now, thanks for your help.
