Paradox on Windows Server 2012
We migrated from using a run of the mill Windows XP box as a server to Windows Server 2012; one of the applications we use is a simple 3 table database which stopped working the moment the files were being accessed from the new server. We could see data but trying to add anything would result in a Lock Time Out error. I discovered that if I remove Referential Integrity from the detail table structure, and just assign it through the data model on the form, everything works. Would it be OK to leave it like that? or would it be somehow dangerous for the integrity of the data? Could the problem have come from some setting on the server? The person who installed the server for us doesn't think so but I'm not sure he is as familiar with Windows 2012 Server as I thought. For the time being I will be monitoring the data and checking that nothing is lost. Any suggestions? Thanks

Hiding the desktop
I read a short article that says in order to not see the desktop, and only my forms, I need to use app.hide() The problem is that when I try it, I get syntax errors.  I've searched through the boards and through the ObjectPal guide that I have, but I have not been able to find out exactly how to do this (what code and where) I also cannot seem to find where in the Object Explorer it is indicated whether a form is a child or a dialog.  I know this seems simple, but its very frustrating.  Thank you for your help.

Thank you The problem was that I had it set up as a child instead of a dialog.  Also, missed declaring the var. Once you told me where to find that and change it, it worked perfectly. Thanks again.

"No more files" error
Upgraded a win 7 box to win 10.  Using a win 7 client.  Now recieve the error: Cannot open: :dbx:table.db No More files. Table: table.db Table: \\earth\database\xxx Happens both manually and programatically.  Can usually get it to work if I quickly try to access same table/query again.  The longer I wait before retrying the greater the chance it will error again. I see some similar issues online after Win 10 updates. Do we have a fix?

isTable and isFile force the file buffers to flush, so that makes sense.. and really can help as a warning here, if you're getting "false" returns, when you know you shouldn't be

Paradox Locate Install Files
I can not locate my Wordperfect Suite CD that I used to install Paradox 9. It has been mentioned that maybe when it was installed the software was copied to the hard drive for future installations. In order for me to locate the install or setup what file or files and there extensions will I be looking for?

it would have been copied to the drive, only if you actually copied the CD yourself.. it does not do that automatically look for a folder with "WP Office" or "WPO" in the name.. that would be Suite 2000
