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?

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

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!

after the recent Win10 Creators Update, no.. Paradox 9, 10, and 11 still run fine, and usually with no "upgrade" issues.. just be sure that you get the Professional Edition of any WordPerfect Suite

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

Paradox Settings and Prefferences resetting win7
I moved to a Win 7 machine last year and since then, my Paradox 11 install has been resetting it's |Tools|Settings|preferences and DeveloperPreferences to factory defaults periodically. I save the settings the way I like them and then a couple of open/close cycles later, I notice that they have reverted to the factory defaults. It doesn't happen every time I open paradox, but I am guessing since I have multiple projects with different CFG files I am working in on a daily basis that somehow my custom defaults are getting deleted. This is behavior I did not see with Paradox11 on my WinXP machine. Anyone else seen this and come up with a fix? Thanks -SS

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

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.

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?

Hello, This has mostly to do with fact that Paradox is not completely compatible with Windows 7, and above. When do you run this problem having table on a machine with older version, it will work 99%. Suc6 Adam

Blob Binary Large Object Error
I have been having a tough time with BLOB (Binary Large Object) errors in memo fields of some large tables running on a Win2008 R2 Terminal server with just 3 users.  Any one else have experience with this? This is an app that has been running with support and modification for 25 years. It has been running on this server for close to 8 years. It is only accessed via a terminal server session, all activity in paradox is native to the server. I have had the tables get corrupted 7 or 8 times in the last three weeks.  I have seen this probably 3 or four times before in the last 8 years, but a rebuild of the tables has resolved it.  In the last three weeks, I have not been able to go more than a couple of days without corruption. I'll post more detail later, I wanted to get this up to see if others have experience with blob errors and figure out if this is the right Prestwood board to post it on as opposed to something specific to coding or tables. Thanks

Unable to connect to Paradox table using ODBC
Hi there, I am trying to connect to a Paradox table in PHP using the INTERSOLV ODBC driver provided with Paradox. I am able to connect to the DSN fine but when I try to run a query, I get this error: , Warning: odbc_[e_xec(]) [function.odbc-exec]: SQL error: [INTERSOLV][ODBC Paradox driver][Paradox]Network initialization failed., SQL state S1000 in SQLExecDirect I have checked my lock files and that my BDE has the correct NET DIR location, which is on our server that houses all of our Paradox tables. I have also tried re-installing Paradox several times. I am able to open the tables from this machine using Paradox with no error so I'm confused as to why this could be happening. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Steven, Thanks for the answer. I ended up solving the problem. The issue was that I was using Anonymous Authentication for the site on IIS and the user that was being used was a user that did not have appropriate permissions to access the lock file over the network. Hopefully this can help others who might run into this problem. Thanks!

Gen Protection fault starting Paradox in W10 64bit
I have been a Paradox user since the mid 90's and have developed a personal project management tool that I use to execute projects. My company is upgrading my current Win 7 Enterprise edition laptop to a Win 10 64bit Enterprise edition laptop. I tried installing Paradox from Office X7 and it seemed to install normally.  In fact the first time I tried opening it it opened up normally.  I then set the alias paths.  However I then rebooted and attempted to start Paradox I got an Unexpected General Protection Violation error. In fact Paradox has never opened again.  I tried de-installing / re-installing but no change. I tried all of the compatibility modes W7, XP-SP3 but it never makes a difference. I do see that Paradox creates the PDOXUSRS.NET file so it is attempting to start up before erring.  I am seeking help on what I can do to fix the problem.

How do I patch Paradox 11 for Vista?
Howdy y'all, I was using Pdox 11.0.0.410 on an XP Pro laptop to support infrequent maintenance of a Pdox/DOS app. The disk failed with no image backup. Now using this Toshiba laptop running Vista Ultimate SP2 x86 with all patches. This copy of Pdox 11 came from the WP Office 11 CD. I have the product key. I had downloaded and installed SP2 and SP3 patches for Pdox 11 and now have 11.0.0.410 on this machine. I read in Mr. Prestwood's article about Vista that Corel had released an Installer patch that results in an 11.0.0.411 instance. This instance is working correctly except for the APPCRASH event that occurs in pdxwin32.exe when I exit the program. Does the 411 point release fix the APPCRASH bug? So what's the path to an 11.0.0.411 instance from my WPO 11 Pro CD? Thanks kindly. P.S. Don't really wanna consider upgrading to Win 7 x86 unless absolutely necessary.
