I just installed your SecureBlackBox vcl edition on my Delphi6. When I start to play with vcl I found that I can't drop on my form ElPKCS11Manager. I drag and drop component but nothing happen on my test form. I do something wrong?

After I tested sample project for this component. I open eTPKCS11.dll. But when I insert token nothing happening.

Fixed, thank you for the report.

And what do you expect to happen?

PKCS11 doesn't have built-in mechanisms to notify about token insertion. We have implemented notifications using periodical checks but they need to be explicitly enabled. The sample doesn't do this and doesn't subscribe for notifications.

Is not hard to add a notify mechanism. I have wrote own VCL for this job and I am a greenhorn on PKCS devices. The code detect the USB activity, detect if inserted USB device is a token or else and if is a token then read infos from it.

This is beyond the scope of SecureBlackbox functionality. In particular, PKCS#11 has no relation to USB, despite the fact that some (but not all!) devices accessed using PKCS#11 are plugged using USB.
