2. Lock on Paradox Link to Spreadsheet
I have Paradox 11 and Corel X6 with Quattro Pro. Within the spreadsheet I have several links to Paradox tables. Something got corrupted and the system crashed, leaving me unable to open the spreadsheet, From another work station I was able to open the spreadsheet files and disable the links, which now allows me to open the spreadsheet. But whenever I try to re-establish the links the spreadsheet locks up. Otherwise, everything works fine. I have reinstalled Quattro Pro, Paradox and BDE but that didn't help. The work station has Win 7/64 and have tried to restore the OS to an earlier point but the restore utility fails. I'm guessing that I will need to get the HD reformatted and reinstall the OS. Before I make that leap, has anyone seen anything similar or have any thoughts on how to make the DB-spreadsheet links work again.

3. Paradox on Windows Server 2012
We migrated from using a run of the mill Windows XP box as a server to Windows Server 2012; one of the applications we use is a simple 3 table database which stopped working the moment the files were being accessed from the new server. We could see data but trying to add anything would result in a Lock Time Out error. I discovered that if I remove Referential Integrity from the detail table structure, and just assign it through the data model on the form, everything works. Would it be OK to leave it like that? or would it be somehow dangerous for the integrity of the data? Could the problem have come from some setting on the server? The person who installed the server for us doesn't think so but I'm not sure he is as familiar with Windows 2012 Server as I thought. For the time being I will be monitoring the data and checking that nothing is lost. Any suggestions? Thanks

4. too long file name, tables won't open
my problem of being unable to open tables because the file name is too long for a version 5 table - I've read in one of my texts that the later versions support long file names.  All I want to do is open the tables.  Since I've had no reply to a way to change the cumulative pathways, could there be another option?  Is there a way to change the tables from the earlier version that doesn't support long file names to my later version 11 Paradox.  Lacking a way to do this the  easy way (I couldn't find anything in the literature to do this, i.e. changing the table version), would it be possible to find out exactly the original paradox version of the table, copy the table to that version so it would open.  Then would there be a way to import the table data to a table constructed under the new version (the design duplicated from the table opened in the earlier non-long file name version).

8. PARADOX 4.5 for DOS on WIN2K
Sadily we are still running a legacy application that requires PDOX45. Honestly I don't mind since I really love this version. Here is the hitch: I upgraded a workstation to WIN 2000 and now I can't get pdox to run. My command line is f:\pdox45\paradox.exe -extk 16000 -net f:\system\pdox45\ Which has worked just fine for all other W95, W98 and WMe machines but under W2K I get the following error message: Can't Start PARADOX: no directory specified for PDOXUSRS.NET, , Any ideas?

Paradox 11 Runtime - Unexpected crash
Under certain conditions I recieve the following error when closing a database "The PfW Runtime has stopped working"   , , This occurs when I open a database with the following switches (Sample shortcut command), , "C:\Program Files (x86)\Paradox Runtime\Programs\pdxrwn32.exe" -c -q -wN:\PortData_V11\CoastalAmerican N:\PortData_V11\CoastalAmerican\mainmenu.fdl, , Once the application opens,   it will run as expected until I click the command X on the top right corner of the app window (not the open form, the APP). If I choose File Exit from my menu or if I click the X in the top right of the open form,  it exits properly,  both of those options have code associated with them that shut down the database. Does anyone know the cause of this OR does anyone have a code snippet to intercept the click on the app window? Thanks!

Turns out the runtime was crashing beacause of interdependence of certain libraries.  The order that they were opened and the order that they were closed cause the crash. Open LibA Open LibB  (which also opens LIBA because it has a dependency on LIBA) Open LIBOthers Close LibA Close LibOthers Close LibB   = Crash Simply closing them in the reverse order that they were opened fixed the issue.

Application Control bar
Does anyone know which event(s) I would use to trap or capture a users mousclick on the applicaion menu. Specifically,  I want to know when the user clicks the X on the application window(not the open form).  I need to run some shutdown code before the active form starts the CLOSE event. Thanks Rum

add stuff to the CLOSE event on the form.. or, disable it completely with this on the MenuAction event on the form if eventinfo.id() = MenuControlClose then disabledefault return endif if you disable it completely, then they have to push your button, or select from your menu, etc

Editing on a form without keying F9
Is it possible not to have to press F9 to start editing fields on a form? The form I am working on ties the fields to a Paradox db table.
