    Nothing New Since Your Last Visit 2. RE: Tablet
    I have one client that has paradox installed and running on a win tablet running win 8 pro.  There are a couple of virtual machines in the works to run windows native applications on IOS and Android.  Another option would be to connect to your desktop pc using one of the RDP applications available for android or IOS.

    Nothing New Since Your Last Visit 4. Comment about Paradox 11 Desktop Settings do not Save (PdxRegCl.exe)
    Thanks! Every time I install Paradox on a new computer, I have to struggle through this inane problem. It's beyond belief that Corel hasn't implemented this simple fix -- why on earth do they allow the program to install something in the registry that defeats one of the most basic settings in Preferences -- "save on exit" and "restore on startup." Further proof that software engineer seldom actually use the stuff they create! , , BTW, I edited the registry (about half a dozen entries deleted) but I didn't delete the two files from the hard drive -- I just added .STOP to their names in case I ever should need them.---Doug Collins

    Do you have a suggestion for how to fix the following problem?: The table repair utility was run on some of the tables in the system. This always creates backup copies of the tables. Now when we try to delete the backups we cannot due to an error. The error seems to point to the backup tables being linked to the repaired tables. The culprit, I believe is referential integrity constraints. I don't know if someone tried to open one of the backup tables or not. All I know is that these files are taking up valuable space and it is desirable to remove them. Do we have to go through all of the tables and restructure them all to fix this or is there a simpler workaround? When the user is only running with Paradox Runtime, restructuring is not an option. Can't wait for your response.

    More than likely you have copied the .lck files along with the tables.  Delete the .lck files in the directory containing the table and you should be good to go.

    8. How do I set location for .NET control file
    When I want to open the files on my server I get the message; "You have attempted to open a database that is in use by someone else, but data can't be shared. You must set the location for the .NET Control file." Of course the file is not in use by anyone else.  I appreciate knowing your suggestions/replies for how to set the .NET Control File location.

    If you use the paradox object expert you can get some fairly good code to fill a combo box with values from a table.  The combo box does not have to be restricted to the values in the "Lookup Table'.  However, be cautious using this.  A large table can cause errors, since the size of the list is limited.  For ease of use I go to a pupup list in a custom form when the tables get too large.

    The tool to use is the TableRepair utility.  This is available on the tools menu.  You will need to copy the tables into a directory where the directory path will meet the short file name and then use the table repair utilty to set the Table version to Paradox 7.  You should then be able to open the tables using longer names.

    After a stroke in 1998, I'm trying to use previously developed tables forms and reports, with a number of problems.  My use of Paradox started with the first version and progressed through the new versions until 1998.  My first problem is that using version 9 in trying to use tables original copied from earlier versions onto later versions, I'm getting a message "unable to open file name too long for a Paradox version 5 table".  My assessment is that in copying files between old and new computers new additions were made to the pathway to the directories and sub-directories and that was called the file name.  Is there a way to get rid of the old pathways?  i.e. is there change the file name some way to get rid of the problem?
