3. Windows 10
Hi there For those of you still running Paradox I can tell you, that it runs very well on Windows 10. No errors and very fast and stable. No problems with BDE either. Only problem we have is using PDFCreator printing PDF directly in the code. But only in some cases. Need to check my code for this. No need to change for anything else due to new Windows version. Atleast we will stick to our Paradox solution as long as we can. Peter

4. Unable to start Application Workshop
I hope there are still some eyes out there with PfD 4.5 knowledge. I am writing the successor to a Paradox system. Part of the reverse engineering process is understanding the old system. Thanks to Amazon, I've got the "Using Paradox 4.5 for DOS" book from Queue (1993) and a few others (including the "What Every Paradox 4.5 Programmer Should Know," by our host here.) I'm trying to get under the hood of the app, but have been stopped at the door. When I try to get into the Application Editor, I get the error message "Can't find required script." This happens immediately after clicking the system menu --> utilities --> workshop.  Any thoughts? [Edit] I should mention that it is entirely possible that the original developer disabled this functionality to keep the curious (non-technical) staff from tinkering with critical scripts.

7. Paradox Report (.rsl) to Crystal Reports (.rpt) ?
I am beginning to get more comfortable using Crystal Reports 11, which has a similar feel to Paradox's built-in Report designer. My question is, does anyone know of software to convert simple reports created in Paradox (without any extra programming) into Crystal Reports format?  I just want the basics (groups, breaks, detail field placement and alignments, format, etc.) to copy over. Thanks!

10. Passing Variables to Report
I have a form which runs a query to select data within a specfied date range.  The form then opens a report based on the queried data.  Can I pass the start and end dates to the report in such a way as to display this range on the report?

13. Splash screen shows then Pdox dies
We've got an intermittent problem when launching Paradox9. The splash screen will show briefly and then go away completely. Any clue? We haven't installed any of the service packs but are pursuing that angle. We're on a WAN & this has 'infected' some but not all sites & is obviously growing concern.

15. Problems with Application Framework
Can someone help? I have introduced a new program into our network, using the Application Framework that is available within Paradox 8. On my computer there is a splash screen that tells you the name of the Program and what version it is at etc, however, on all the other computers on the network the splash screen does not appear even though it does on mine! We are all executing the same .exe file. Can anyone help? Cheers

16. JDBC and the BDE
Our web application queries the Paradox tables through JDBC every 30 minutes to update our local copy of the data. This scheduled query will run, for about a day and a half before it starts failing with this error:, , Error message: Error while trying to connect to database, Exception message:, While trying to obtain Connection object, there was a ProviderFailure exception on the server., Following are BDE Error messages:, BDE ERROR CODE: 9488 MESSAGE: Too many sessions., , We are closing all connections and database resources after the update is finished. For, some reason, the server is running out of resources., , Is increasing the number of sessions in APPSRV~1.pro from the default 45 to a higher number the right direction to address this issue?, , Bob G.

20. comparison between Pardox and Access
I've been using Paradox from V4.0 through V9, relying on Mike Prestwood's books to get excellent results. , The pressure is on to convert or adopt to Access for future database/progamming, but I was always under the impression that Paradox was more stable, and overall a better product. If this is true, is there any chart or table available that compares the two, or at least some indication as to Paradox's strong points in relation to Access? This is a bit urgent, Thank you!

22. Paradox books by Dan Ehrmann or ??
I want to learn how to expand my basic knowledge of writing queries in Paradox. My company's application operates on Paradox and I want to learn how to really manipulate the data available. I've been told that two books by Dan Ehrmann are good, but out of print. "Paradox Queries--The Basics" and "Paradox Queries--A Developer's Reference". If anyone has a lead on either of these I'd appreciate knowing., , Bob

Database Desktop on Windows 10
I've been using Database Desktop for years to maintain Paradox tables, but it now appears that DBD doesn't work on Windows 10 for build 1703 or later.  Is there an updated DBD that does work?  Or is there an alternative tool I can use?  I've found several tools that will let me view and modify the data in Paradox tables, but none that will let me modify the table structures.  Any suggestions?

Multiple users edit same form concurrently in P11?
Hello All, I am very new to Paradox and have a question from an IT support side, rather than the user side. Our business office purchased licenses and installations for Paradox 11 due to a form issue in the previous version of Paradox they were using. This office claims that in their old version of Paradox they could have 2 users edit the same form simultaneously, but then it "quit working." I installed Paradox 11 on a Windows 7 and Windows 10 desktop without issue during the installation. They can open their old forms and tables without issue, but get the error below when opening the same form. Is it possible to adjust a setting or modify the .NET file to allow for simultaenous form edits?
