Windows 10 and Paradox 9
We are currently running Paradox 9 on four PC's with Windows 7 Pro OS without issue.  Because Windows 7 will no longer be supported after Jan 2020; I'm going to give Windows 10 Pro a try on a single client machine on our small network (starting from scratch with an empth HD).  I first need to decide on which Windows 10 Pro version to purchase (i.e. 32-bit or 64-bit).  Also; any information / advise to help in this process would be much appreciated.

Where to Find Service Packs For PDX9 and 10
Hi: Just starting using a new laptop and would like to get either Paradox 9 or 10 on it. I have the install disks, but was wondering where I can get the service packs for those versions since it has been 15+ years since they were available. Thanks!

> Probably I'll have to run this way, the problem is that in the printer interface the screen is all in English, and the application is in Portuguese. 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?

Fonts in Win10 v1809
I just set up Paradox on a new system running the latest ver of Win 10 (1809).  My reports on the new system required a complete revision of the fonts used in the report.  I've been using the same ones for years and the fonts have always migrated to the new system.  This time, however, the fonts are not available in the properties, font drop down for any of the fields in my report.  The fonts are installed in the usual place and are available to the other myriad programs.  I installed Paradox from an X9 disc which I know doesn't make a difference.  I even uninstalled Paradox from the system and reinstalled using the X8 disc in the hope that it would make a difference.  It, of course, did not.  I am using other fonts that provide a similar impact.  But, not the same. Any body have any suggestions? Thanks in advance. Karen

Forms Event Model Confusion
I have never found just the right combination of events for the following situation. In the following argument..... "C:\Program Files (x86)\Paradox\Programs\pdxwin32.exe" -c -q -pE:\OutsourceWork\V11\priv -wE:\OutsourceWork\V11 _stub.fsl Paradox will launch and display the _stub.fsl   form (no problem) When the form opens I want specific code to run AFTER the form is fully displayed. Two question 1.  How do I WAIT until the form is fully displayed 2. What event should I put the code in? My current problem is that there are 5-10 function calls that take place, each displaying results in a list on the screen.  And regardless of how many SLEEP() I put in the thing it will not display the form until about  halfway through the code execution. Sometimes only flickering onto the screen briefly before closing. Many thanks!

Thanks Jay,  but you misunderstood the question.  I dont need the text,  I need the designer to open and display for a query that was pre-designed and saved. In OPAL, var Q Query endvar q.readfromfile("c:\\temp\\somequery.qbe") ; now, i want q.displaydesigner() or q.restructure(), or menuaction.newquery(q) or any other of things I haven't found thanks, Jeff

Private Path
Does anyone know if DURING the install of Paradox (v11),  whether any paths are saved in some hidden/buried config file? This is the issue.  I have a user (Win 10,  PDOX 11) whose software is not acting normally.  while instigating I decided to run table repair.  However,  when table repair launches it throws an error regarding the ERRORS.DB table in the blahblah\pdxpriv folder.  Only the path it is barfing up is not the the private folder that is set/configured in paradox.   Wondering where it is finding this erroneous path. Thanks jeff

depending on how you install and how you configure the bde, there can be any number of entries in the registry.. with p11, there are also the potential conflicts of not clearing that stupid reg cleaner thing from the machine and the registry.. what you see is NOT always what you get

formatted memo question
I have a form field which I would like to use to modify a formatted memo table field without giving the user direct access to the underlying table.  I can get the table field to display in the form field, but when I try to update it the formatting doesn't seem to work.  (tab and enter keys take me out of the form field).  I have tried both undefined and defined field creation and the only difference is that I have to press F9 when entering text into the defined field version.  How do I enter formatted text into this field?

OK.  The Shift F2 makes it work like I thought it should.  I'm sure that that is somewhere in the reference manual and I've been glossing over it.  I'll need to include a text reminder on the screen above the field in order to have the users update the field properly, :-)  but that's no biggie.  Thanks for the help.

external connectivity issues (printing, MAPI email, etc) can change with the versions.. p11 is the same, but the suite is different, , also, if you're using full paradox, a runtime patch isn't related to using that

Paradox 10 "invalid alias"

Cottage.. there is only one active cfg file at a time.. unless you're actually deploying multiple configurations, depending on which client/app you're working on, having more than one can create oppotunities for confusion the first two, the "bars" configs, are for the toolbars.. yes, if they get hosed, they can be deleted

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

Set Range/Pattern Match
I am working with a PDX8 program which uses Wahl2Wahl's table lookups which work very well. The table lookups do not function correctly on PDX10, the up/down arrows and tab do not work. I am trying to create something similar and combining  set range and locate pattern. I can get either to work but not together. Is there a way to code in such a way that the setRange is the default but the user can also type .. to enable the locate pattern logic? method keyPhysical(var eventInfo KeyEvent), , Var,   s  string, endVar,     doDefault,  ,      s = self.value,      ,      ;PART.setRange( self.value, self.value+"zzz" ),    ,       ignoreCaseInStringCompares(yes),       advancedWildcardsInLocate(Yes) ,       PART.locatePattern("DESC",s),   , endmethod Thanks.

 Thank you, Steven, that's awesome.  Of course I feel stupid that the capability is built in to the language itself and I didn't find it.  I was looking for it in the ui, but alas, it was burried in the 1000+ pages of paper manuals I got (and still have) w/ Borland Paradox For Windows in '93.  Ah those were the days ;-)

PDOX11 over MSSQL (ODBC) - Schema in Table Names
Might anyone here know a way to configure ODBC/SQLEXPRESS under the BDE to return table names without a schema prefix (i.e., tablename rather than dbo.tablename)? Should I be looking at a different SQL DB?  Ideally, I’d like to point the alias that currently references the main paradox database to one referencing tables ported to sql and look at what needs fixing from there.  Thanks to a tool created and shared on codeproject by one of the forum members (thanks Igor!), database conversion to SQLEXPRESS went surprisingly easily, with only a few minor field type changes needed across hundreds of tables. I’m connecting to the SQL db fine from paradox via odbc. That said, I’ll consider a different back end (Firebird? PostgreSQL?) if it means the Paradox app will require fewer changes; I’m dealing with many forms and lots of code and porting the back end is a step toward a full conversion away from Paradox. Thanks! John
