Yes, the file server needs to be dealt with also
Jeff, Yes, the File Server needs to be dealt with also Setting the Oplock settings might be enough, but I would do the SMB settings as well and make sure the Sharing is set in the CFG file. If you can move the paradox data etc to a drive native to the terminal server, you will see a signifigant performance boost. I haven't installed on a Server 2019, I am not sure if that adds any complications. I have two successfull installs using terminal server 2016 running now, but nothing on 2019.

I got the notice that you posted this, but it does not show here yet if there is a language issue, that might be part of the problem.. can you insert little temporary msgInfo messages in the printing process, to see how far it gets? to determine the specific line it fails on?

RE: trouble using SendDLG() on 201
we've already switched to an alternative like this, for one process that needs html, as an attachment, with a submit button, in a big batch to our vendors.. everything that email security hates, in one process :-) the only conceptual problem with the alternative, but it didn't matter in this particular situation, is that the alternative can't stuff the "sent" box

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

"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?

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.

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

trouble using SendDLG() on 2016 RDS svr W/ Outlook
I am starting up a new 2016 RDS server to replace a 2008 R2 Terminal server running a Paradox 11 App. I am having trouble using the M.SendDLG() command, which runs fine on The 2008R2 server. I get a windows error about the default email client and to open Outlook and set it as default I have opened outlook and set it as default I have also set it in control panel default programs and through settings default programs Both servers are running Outlook, the 2016 server where the problem is occuring is running Outlook 2019. There is also a Paradox errormessage that simply says "Main".  I think thats the errorShow for the M.SendDLG() Anyone else run into this?

DLL problem Importing XLS in Paradox 11 RT
I am running into a DLL problem (I think) when trying to import an old .XLS format spread sheet The same code (importSpreadsheet()) imports the same spreadsheet in my developer pdxwin32.exe But when I go to run it in the production machine in runtime PdxRwn32.exe, I get an error At first, I got an error about a missing DLL (PFit110EN.dll)  I tracted down the DLL in the Programfiles\Paradox\Programs of my developer machine and put it into Programfiles\runtime\Programs\ of the production machine Now I am getting an error about unable to read headers when I use an importSpreadsheet()  I also tracked down a PFit110.DLL that had a newer date (3/7/2003 vs 2/25/2003) and tried that on the production machine, but it didn't help. Has anyone else run into this and found a solution?

PdxRegCl.EXE
I have used posts to this board in the past to resolve this issue, but recently installed WPOX5 on Windows7 machine and tricks that worked in the past on Windows XP do not appear to work in Windows7. I have cleared all of the registry entries of PdxRegCl and have disabled the Registry Cleaner in the start up of msConfig, but next time I start Paradox, Windows recongifures it and all of the registry entires reappear and the RegistryCleaner is back in the startUp. I cannot retain the working directory that was set in the last session and all of the established ALIASES are lost. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Paradox 10 and Windows 7 64-bit networked
We've got about 15 client machines and have to start upgrading XP to Windows 7 64 bit. I've been working on Windows 7 32 bit without trouble (except the crash whenever I try to close without saving a new script). Has anyone successfully made this work? Did it work out of the box or did you have to you have to use XP mode?

Mouse WHEEL Movement
In PDOX 8,  the mouse wheel had no impact on the paradox environment,  It just didn't work. Now in PDOX 11,  the mouse wheel is allowing users to scroll off of the record they should be Adding/Editing.  The user is then focused on a blank screen. Is there a way to trap that event?  I dont see any clues in the help doicument when it comes to scrolling mouse wheels. Currently I use the KeyPhysical event to prevent users from using the arrow keys to move from record to record,  but does not prevent the MOUSE action

Does Paradox have macro substitution?
I need to use the contents of a parameter to pull a field's contents. Visual FoxPro uses the & character for that sort of thing. Is there a Paradox equivalent? Edit: Fount it - it's called dereferencing, eg  sField = "Name"   ;Assign a field name to the variable., view(tcCustomer.(sField));Dereference the variable using parentheses. from:  https://www.prestwoodboards.com/ASPSuite/KB/Document_View.asp?QID=101169
