I guess the component code is in unit EasyListView.pas and the package 
is named EasyListview.lpk. This is bad because installation creates the 
"package unit" with the same name as the package file, i.e. it 
overwrites your component unit.

Remedy: give the package a different, more "package-like" name, e.g. 
EasyListViewPkg, or LazEasyListView (also to distinguish from any Delphy 
package). Carefully check the contents of the new LazEasyListView.lpk 
file to make sure that the old package name is not mentioned any more 
(or recreate the package from the start - this is not difficult and 
almost no work).

IIRC, I had tried to convert this component some time ago, too, and 
found it very difficult. Well, maybe because my intention was to make it
