I did post this link somewhere on this site years ago, but I cannot find it anywhere.

Anyway, when Windows Vista was introduced I created a new customizable installer for the BDE which includes the 2/4GB diskspace patch as well as providing manifest files etc to allow installation/use of the BDE from a limited account. Settings changes are once again correctly forced to the cfg file (and not the registry which would require permissions) and by default the BDE is installed to the \BDE32 folder and the default netdir one directory deeper.

All up this means that UAC was (and still is) now a non issue for the BDE.

Two versions are supplied - with Sql Links and without. Be sure to read the readme file to see how you can set your defaults in the ini file.

Link: http://www.all2ezy.com/pages/developer_downloads.php

Tested on Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 but not yet Windows 10 - used by many members of the Paradox Community group.

Some Hints:

Hint #1: Never assume you are the only BDE application installed on any given machine.

Hint #2: Never read/write the BDE settings directly from/to the registry. This is bad programming all round. Use the BDE API documented in about 1993 (there are most likely OPAL equivalent functions in many cases). You user will thank you for not screwing up other software that uses the BDE.

The “Grand Theft Auto” chases, the blazing gunfights, and the audacious wrecking ball jewelry heist look cool but these scenes seem out of place in this lackluster buddy comedy. https://theeducationlife.com/

Great blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any recommendations? Kudos! the traveler season

I made an archive program with Lazarus, the program uses TDbf Table and TdataSource for the archive.

Now I would like to install (distribute) the program on another Windows PC and it is necessary to install the engine that runs the TDf and the DataSource.


- in addition to the Prog.exe program and the Arch.dbf archive, what else should I install on the client computer where the program must run?

. where should i get the engine component to make Tdbf and TDataSource work?

- How to install the engine to make Tdbf and TDataSource work?

Thank you
