KB100256

Question: I have recently started learning to work with Paradox 9 and have found your book Paradox 9 power programing extremely helpful. I have encountered a problem and hope that you will be kind enough to assist. The problem has occured twice now so I don't think it is a finger problem. When I nearly reach a stage of completion, on opening the program it goes into tile mode, a few seconds later the program tell me to abort (Corel Paradox crashes on startup). Should you be able to give me any assistance I would be most appreciative.

Answer:

Using Paradox 9 on XP with CorelDraw or any other programs is fine. No problem there. Not sure what the issue is though. You might want to try starting Paradox with a clear desktop using the -c command line option. You can search the help file for command line options for usage. If that isn't the problem, then you must have a bad installation of Paradox (try reinstalling) or some other program is causing it to crash (doubtfull with XP memory management).

Hi,


We have used paradox for 20 years and continue to do so because we are heavily invested in it.  Recently, there is a problem with Restructuring a Pdox7-11 table that does not allow any defaults to properly fill in, any lookup table information.  Furthermore, other tables that have the same structure fill in normally until I open their table structure.  This has cause entire working directories to fail.  The program ran fine for a few months initially before it started to crash.  Really confused, apologies if this is posted to the wrong section. 

Browse your boards often.  Any help / pointers is much appreciated.
