H-1B Discussion
The controversial [URL=http://www.prestwood.com/community/reference/H1-B_KB_Article.html]H1-B visa program[/URL] was increased by lobbying groups such as TechNet several years ago.

RE: Paradox & Custom ODBC Driver
To add an ODBC data source, first define its DSN.  Once defined (created), you'll see it listed when you create a Database alias in the Database Driver Name dropdown (default's to STANDARD).

RE: Accessing an FTP with filesyst
If I were doing this for a client, I would create a 32-bit DLL in Delphi and simply call it from Paradox to process what was needed.

Hi Mark, The funny thing, or good news, is that Paradox runs better on Windows 10 64bit than on Windows 7 and Paradox runs better on Win7 than Vista. Backwards compatibility is getting better with each version of Windows after Vista. So, use either Paradox 9, 10, or 11.

Regarding...
Install Paradox 9 on Windows 7 64bit
Paradox 9, 10, 11, etc. install easily on Windows 7! You do have to download WinHelp to get the Paradox help files to work properly.

1. The Future of Paradox Blog

If you have an existing Paradox system you can keep using it but you'll need to skip the Vista operating system and either stick with Windows XP or move to Windows 7. Because better tools exist, you may very well want to put a plan together now for converting to another development tool or at least understand what the future is likely to hold. If you're a power-user or researcher working with data, stick with Paradox.
