Unknown internal operating system error
I cut and paste images into an image field on a Paradox form and I've been doing this with no problems for years; yesterday I got a message saying 'Unknown internal operating system error' with a reference to the .MB file, when I tried to paste an image in. Paradox hung. After restarting, I verified and rebuilt the table and it imported the image ok but when I tried to do it with a new record the same thing happened. I'm using Paradox 10.0.0.663 running on a Lenovo laptop with Vista Home Premium and Service Pack 2. The database has 121,900 records in it but not all of them have images. Does anyone know what might be causing this? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.,

Thanks!  I've used ChimneySweep before (probably have a license for it!), but I'd forgotten about it.  Thanks for the heads-up/reminder!  I'll check it out.  (As I recall, it was very useful in fixing things that the built-in "fixer" couldn't fix.  I'll try to dig it up & see what it can do with these memo fields!) Thanks again! Aloha, -pt

RE: Unknown internal operating sys...
It's been 19 months (how time flies!) since I started this thread and in the time I have added thousands more records (file size is now 134,000 records) but, of course, with no new blob images. Last week I decided it was time to finally strip the blob field out altogether so (after making a couple of backups of course), I restructured the file, taking the graphics out. After I'd done this, the MBFile, which had been just over 2GB in size, was gone...meaning my backups now take 2 minutes instead of a quarter hour. Unexpected but handy side effect!

Hooray! A fix which seems to work. I found a message on a different thread which suggest running MSCONFIG and just unchecking the registry editor in startup there and that seems to have worked.

Paradox 11 Desktop Settings do not Save (PdxRegCl.exe)
Paradox does not remember desktop settings. I just installed Paradox 11 on a new computer and my working directory and other settings do not stick when I restart Paradox. Why?

I have to say, this problem has got me beat! On Windows 7, anyway. Like SLZD, I first tried removing the files but Paradox just reinstalls them again. So, next I thought it would try removing or renaming them in the startup directory, a solution which worked for me on Windows 8. This didn't work because the files are not in there. So....finally, I thought I would rename or remove directly from the registry, so, using the link on one of the previous posts as a guide, I opened regedit and navigated my way down to the Run directory....only to find that they're not there either., , So, what does this mean? Unless I was looking in the wrong place (and I followed the path instructed very carefully) the files don't seem to be referenced in the registry., , I'm flummoxed.

I recently installed Paradox 11 and encountered this problem as well. It seems easy to fix under Windows 8 (and, presumably, 10). I found the registry cleaner under the startup tab in the Task Manager and just disabled it from there and everything now seems to work fine. But I also have machines running Windows 7 and it seems much more problematic here - the startup progams are not listed in the startup directory and Pdxregcl does not show up in the startup folder. So - I ran a search, found the two files and manually deleted them. Unfortunately, when I did this, Paradox would no longer run and I had to reinstall.
