You can download Framework (Bluetooth, IrDA, Serial or WiFi) as Executable Installation or as ZIP archive. We strongly recommend to use Framework Executable installation instead of ZIP. But if you decided to use ZIP archive this article describes how to unpack and install Framework from ZIP Archive.

.NET Editions

Once you downloaded the Framework .NET Edition all you need to do is simple unzip it into any location on your PC. It doesn't require any additional installation.

Note: if you already have other Framework .NET Edition installed you should unpack the new one into the same place. For example, you have Bluetooth Framework installed in "c:\WCL" folder. And you downloaded WiFi Framework in ZIP archive. You should unpack WiFi Framework into the same ("c:\WCL") folder.

C++ Editions

Once you downloaded the Framework C++ Edition all you need to do is simple unzip it into any location on your PC. It doesn't require any additional installation.

Note: if you already have other Framework C++ Edition installed you should unpack the new one into the same place. For example, you have Bluetooth Framework installed in "c:\WCL" folder. And you downloaded WiFi Framework in ZIP archive. You should unpack WiFi Framework into the same ("c:\WCL") folder.

VCL Edition

After downloading the Framework VCL Edition ZIP archive unpack it into any location on your PC. In case you already have other Framework VCL Edition installed on your PC you should unpack the new downloaded Framework into the same location. For example, you have Bluetooth Framework installed in "c:\WCL" folder. And you downloaded WiFi Framework in ZIP archive. You should unpack WiFi Framework into the same ("c:\WCL") folder.

Once you unpacked the Framework you have to add paths for your IDE. Assume you downloaded WiFi Framework (WclWiFiDemo_VCL.zip) and unpacked it into "c:\WCL". You'll find the following folders there: Demo, Doc, Lib and Source. Under the Lib folder you can see Common and WiFi folders (if you use Bluetooth, IrDA or Serial Framework you also find Communication folder there.

Run your IDE. Open Tools->Environment Options dialog from the Tools menu. Find Environment Variables there and add click New... button to add new Path variable. Note: if the Path variable already exists then select it and click Edit.... The value of path variable should look like this: c:\WCL\Common\D6;c:\WCL\WiFi\D6;%PATH%. Where D6 is the folder specific for your IDE. For RAD Studio 10.2 it should be D102\Win32. Note: the Path should always be to Win32 libraries. Close OK to add the variable.

Now you should add the same path to Library Path (if your IDE supports both 32 and 64 bit compilers you have do it for both. If it also supports CBuilder you should add path for CBuilder Libraries as well.

After that you can install the Framework package. To do so open Component->Install Packages dialog and add wclWiFiFrameworkD.bpl located in c:WCL\WiFi\D6 (or other IDE) folder.
