Paradox 11 app conversion

Paradox 11 app conversion in Convert To/From Paradox topic (part of our Corel Paradox / ObjectPAL Coding group).

Quick Search: Paradox   conversion   Paradox 11   Paradox 11 app  
Hello All;

I have an application (exe) that I developed in Paradox 9. I just upgraded to Paradox 11 and the application no longer runs. It appears that the application framework is missing. How can I convert my Paradox 9 app to Paradox 11? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Nick,

I'll jump in and second Steve's suggestion. The fact is the framework was removed in Paradox 10. So, if it was me, I would just leave the application in Paradox 9 until you can redevelop it in Delphi or DotNet.

The Application Framework" no longer exists; it was dropped after version 9. Many of us felt that was a good thing, as it was relatively inflexible and, worst of all, was sparsely documented.

I know that doesn't help your situation. My advice would be to stick with version 9. There were some improvements in paradox 10, but version 9 is still a good platform. I know several substantial applications running in Paradox 8 and 9. There have been no real changes, other than version marking, since version 10.

By the way, you don't really have a .EXE application, just a small .EXE that launches Paradox using the AF and starts the top form or script of your AF application.

About Steve Caple

Steve Caple I first saw Paradox in 1985 when a guy named Rick Albers came to demo Ansa's new 1.1 release to the Sacramento PC Users Group. The feeling was like going from WordStar to WordPerfect 3.0, a sense of freedom and power.

A long time dBase user had an evaluation copy he let me use for a few weeks.  Going from dBase to Paradox was like finding yourself walking WITHOUT your shoe laces tied together.  I was hooked; within a week I wrote my first useful Paradox DOS program.  It took a few evenings to put together a script to  generate a Basic Bulk Mail sort,  using a series of Paradox queries against a bicycle club Century ride mailing list.  It then used PAL to send text to the printer, printing it out in 5 digit Zip, three digit Zip, and miscellaneous by state groups, including group header labels and spacers on one-across stock  -  just tear it apart at the headers and give it to the mailing volunteers, and a job that used to take 20 people 4 or 5 hours could be done by 5 or 6 in a single hour.  

Later, Paradox for Windows version 5 added many needed structural and indexing and linking features, and as hardware caught up with the needs of a GUI environment it became a powerful database for small companies and divisions or branches within large corporations.  Despite some years of no real changes it remains one of the best products for that purpose.
