    It would have really helped if you would have
    included a component list, INCLUDING VERSIONS, in
    the readme.

    Also, in XMLExcelConvert, the files OleAdapter,
    UFlexCelImport cannot be found anywhere.

    Where can they be found?

    What version of Indy are you using?

      Thanx for comments.
      - I will extend description in readme.
      - Indy version 10.0.52 is used.
      - UFlexCelImport and OleAdapter are versions distributed with older versions of Delphi Professional. These libraries will be removed from the next release, while their future development is not quite clear.

      UFlexCellImport and OleAdapter are from TMS components. It is not a good thing to use commercial components in an open-source package.

      What exactly are you trying to do with those, the XML/Excel exporting/importing?

      It should be easier than that, I'd be willing to
      give you a hand in figuring it out and making it
      work.

      I am planning on using iXEdit in a VXML editor
      I am working on.

        TMS continue development of excel package. TMS included it to their portfolio several years ago. And yes, different way for excel should be used, while excel libraries development came from "free for free software" to commercial.
        Way how to do it is through pure xml transformation that also gives better opportunities for the future.

      In the iXedit there is used Flexcel version 2.5.3 (UFlexCellImport and OleAdapter units). This version has been released under MPL 1.1 license, so it should be safe to use it for open source as well as commercial products based on iXedit.
