    6. Running Paradox over an IPSec VPN Connection
    We recently upgraded to Windows 7 and I purchased Paradox 11.  Paradox 11 runs perfectly fine when I am working in the office.  But when I try to run Paradox over an IPsec VPN connection, performance degrades substantially (a simple query which takes 3 seconds to run takes over a minute).  The issue is not related to internet speed or connectivity as Microsoft products such as Access and SQL Server Management Studio run perfectly fine without any performance degradation.  Does anyone know of a solution which would improve Paradox performance?

    7. Paradox 7 upgrade
    Hi   I'm trying to build a case for our company to upgrade from paradox 7 win with BDE 3.0 to at least 9.0, although by the look of it we would have to get wordperfect X7 pro which would include 11.0.   i can't find much information on the benefits or changes we would get from such a jump.   Should we upgrade to BDE 5.2.2 already ? and what benefits (i'm sure i used to have a website that gave me bde 5.0.2 with changelogs but cannot find it anymore)  Is it worth installing paradox runtime on all clients ? I tested on my home pc with runtime 10 and our application seems to work fine but with "no" benefits ? If we get runtime 10 or 11, can i continue devlopping/fixing with paradox 7 dev on my computer without breaking everything ? Many thanks Jerome

    Nothing New Since Your Last Visit 11. Comment about Delphi Case Sensitivity (No)
    Thank you for doing these sample questions! Question#8 could be clarified a bit more though to specify that the different case variables cannot be used within the same scope (thus the answer is False). At first I thought the question was asking if either case could be used in Delphi (I was thinking different scopes), which would lead to a True answer. --- Janice

    Thanks for making this available. I am trying to use this downloaded file to install BDE 5.2. The installation starts fine, but there must be some logic in the installation program because I am getting the error message below, even though I don't have any BDE applications running. The installation program has detected BDE version currently running. Please close any applications using the BDE and then restart this installation. Anyone have a resolution for this error message or an alternate BDE 5.2 installer? Many thanks! --Joe
