Coder Borland Database Engine:
How to check what BDE version is installed.
Posted 12 years ago on 6/26/2008 and updated 12/23/2008
Take Away: To check which version of the BDE is installed, open the BDE Administrator and select Object | Version Information.


Q. I've updated my BDE from version 5.01 to version but the About BDE Administrator dialog still shows version 5.01?

A. Your update may have taken. Updates typically just replace the DLLs the BDE uses so you may have the latest installed.

For example, on my machine, in BDE Administrator, I select Help | About and the following dialog shows:

BDE 5.01 About Box

Version Information
To see what version of the BDE engine you "actually" have installed, you need to look at the Version Information from within the BDE Administrator. Select Object | Version Information... to see the DLL version numbers. For example, the following is the version information on my computer (the same BDE that produced the 5.01 About box above).

Is there a method of verifying this info in ObjectPAL?
