RE: Corrupt Form... Now what?
Hi Steve, I had thought that the error might be spurious, but just discovered that it was not... In one of the Var-EndVar blocks, I had selectPrinter as a string. Removing that eliminated the error. As always, many thanks, Lothar

wow.. just did some searches, and the few pdox-lcapp errors are all about a decade old.. the solution that seemed to have the most reliable sources was "not logged in as admin".. but mixed results, for anything that was suggested

Migration from Paradox to Access
Is the following scenario feasible:
  • Keep the existing PARADOX application, but move the data from *.db to MS-SQL
  • Re-program PARADOX-Forms etc. in Access step by step and use the MS-SQL Data in parallel with PARADOX and Access
  • If this is an option, who can support us? Michael

    Migrating to Windows Server2008
    Been using paradox ocx as web server for over 10 yrs on server with windows server 2003(?).  Recently purchased new server.  Have Windows Server 2008 on it.  Migrated entire data and web info from old to new.  Cleaned up and tested all web pages on new server using localhost.  localhost:8081 hits paradox ocx and creates web pages perfectly. Now trying to webname:8081 to hit paradox and not working.  Probably bad description, I'm no good on the server side. Any ideas.  Why does local host see the 8081 port in the ocx but not the webname:8081? Help

    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.

    Does Paradox Runtime SP3 contain a virus?
    First off, I have been including the pdoxruntime9sp3setup.exe file with my database programs as my source for Paradox Runtime.  Is this the best file, or should I really be using something else? I have had a couple of users indicate that this file contains a virus (Trojan).  This was identified through AVG although I'm finding that Trend Micro also identifies a virus or at least remnants of one.  However checks using Symantec, McAfee and Kaspersky do not indicate any threats.  Can someone tell me if there actually is a virus or not?  I believe it is the AxDistEx.exe file that is in questions.  I have seen mention of this issue in one other post, but its not clear to me why some virus programs are picking this up and some are not.

    Paradox 11 not printing to network printers
    I have just re-installed my Paradox 11 on a Windowsx64 laptop and I cannot get it to print reports from Paradox reports themselves. However, they work perfectly if I call them up from a form in objectPAL. When I just try to print in a new Paradox sessionm I get a dialogue box that says: Printer interface setup error/ LCAppPrint Initialize failed!  Then Windows 10 just closes the program. I'm not all that good with finding out where my problem lies. Could anyone point me to some solution, please? Tony

    Windows 10 (Creators update) Print issue
    I recently converted another user over to the Paradox 11 Runtime. I now have 10-12 users on the runtime This particular user is experiencing a strange error.  Any report that is sent directly to a Printer causes the runtime to crash.  Sending the same reports to the screen works,  but then subsequently attempting to print another crash Using a PDF Printer works without error. The printers are networked printers,  Paradox V8 on Win 10 had no problem printing to them. I have one other user with a similar problem,  in that users case, they are running Pdox11 runtime in a Remote Desktop environment,  They get the error if they are sending the job to a REDIRECTED printer.   If they send the job to a printer that is not redirected,  then the progam works correctly. Any thoughts?? Jeff

    Prints with Problem (but scrolls properly...)
    Hello, I have a particular mailing label report that just started to behave oddly: When I print the report, the result looks like this: GOOD LABEL 1, BLANK LABEL EJECTED, GOOD LABEL 2, BLANK LABEL EJECTED, GOOD LABEL 3, BLANK LABEL EJECTED, , To diagnose the problem, I viewed the report on screen, and it displayed LABEL 1. I clicked to view the next page, and expected to see a blank label, but instead, LABEL 2 appeared. As I clicked along, each label displayed in sequence properly, with no blank pages. So, when scrolling, all looks fine, but when printing, I get the alternation with blanks as I have described. What would be causing that situation, and how can I fix it? Many thanks, Lothar

    yes, paper size mis-match can always do strange things if you kick it to pdf first, you can see what's coming, before you start.. but with something like labels, that might get weird, too, cuz that's not normal paper size

    Does Paradox have macro substitution?
    I need to use the contents of a parameter to pull a field's contents. Visual FoxPro uses the & character for that sort of thing. Is there a Paradox equivalent? Edit: Fount it - it's called dereferencing, eg  sField = "Name"   ;Assign a field name to the variable., view(tcCustomer.(sField));Dereference the variable using parentheses. from:  https://www.prestwoodboards.com/ASPSuite/KB/Document_View.asp?QID=101169
