Win 10 and Installation Issue
We need to upgrade some machines from Win 7 to Win 10, and they need to be able to run Paradox 8. 
  • Will that work?
  • Is there a way to install from a CD to a machine with no CD drive?
  • Thanks. Gary

    I use ezdialog and it works with  pdox11.  The only anomaly that I have found is that the up/down arrow keys no longer scroll the contents of lookup dialogs

    Paradox 10 hanging since upgrade to Windows 10
    Hi, Has anyone managed to get Paradox 10 working satisfactorily on Windows 10? Care to share your setup please? We upgraded to Windows 10 last week and since then Paradix hangs 4-5 times a day. We manage to get it going again by having everyone log off and deleting all the lock files but it's getting a but frustrating. We have our data in a shared folder and everyone is pointing to the same .NET file. I've tried every suggestion I've seen here and elsewhere with no luck so far. Any tips, pointers, suggestions gratefully received.  Thanks  Delordson

    Paradox on Windows 10 Locking Up
    I have a customer that insists on continuing to use Paradox. We have the files stored on a file server that has a share that is mapped to all users workstations as a drive. It has been working fine for years. Recently, we migrated the server to from 2008 R2 to 2016. We now have users complaining about the application locking up especially if inactive for a while. I'm wondering if anyone has an ideas to prevent this from happening? Thanks, Jeff

    Printer Driver Settings
    We have  been running Paradox 11 on Windows 7 for awhile. We have bought new Windows 10 pc‘s and are going through the configuration process. We have a Konica C658 printer. We are running into an issue where Paradox will not pick up the default printer preferences. For example, in the printer driver we have set Paper size = 14.5 x 11 Orientation = Portrait Print Type = 1-Sided Staple = Left Corner But when you print from Paradox, for example instead of Print Type = 1-Sided, we are getting 2-Sided. I know I can set some of these settings via code(I don‘t believe I can set it to staple). But I‘d rather not go back and change this on every form where I print reports. Has anyone run into issues with Paradox not picking up the printer preferences that are set on the printer driver? Oall other apps, such as the Microsoft Office apps, work fine. Thanks, Gary

    BDE LANGDRIVER
    Anyone have an idea of what the difference is between these two drivers are? 'ascii' ANSI     vs   Paradox 'ascii' The reason for the question, I have recently seen sporadic issues with the former, but have had inconsistant results when testing for the issue. For instance  SetGenFilter(Some_DYNARRAY)  might, and I emphasize might,  give errors with the former,  but does not with the later. With the latter, When exporting a table to excel, if a fiels is blank, data equal to one space is exported,with the former an empty string is exported. Just hoping to get a handle on how these are different and if possible,  how to change or check the the setting when the paradox application launches.

    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

    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

    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?

    Working dierctory problem
    Hi All. I have a very strange occurence happening with Paradox 9. The working directory is all set correctly and tables working spot on. If I look at table view all data correct and up to date but when I look at the tables in the folder via windows explorer they ar over 5 years old ?? I can table view, re structure and save as and this would work but i cant see where paradox is getting this other information from. Could this be a registry error or windows problem? Thanks in anticipation... Andy

    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

    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 7
    Hi and thanks for any support, Have a databas on Paradox 7 . The original designer has passed. After any help at all on ammending 2 values withoin the database . Have upgraded from XP through Vista and then 7 (32 bit) and programme still works. How do i ammend a value eg the VAT is at 20%(say change to 21% as a test)If we use design viewer to open up VAT calc 17.5% is shown (which is obviously a default value) you can put in a new value and it evens prompts the change but nothing changes in effect. Please please please not an sql expert but windows knowledge above average . Tried using Paradox editior no good. Apparently the original designer used tools and did about 4 steps to effect the change .  Any advice appreciated.2nd question should we upgrade to Paradox 9 or 10. ? to make life easier in the future

    the upgrade to 9/10/11 is essentially cosmetic.. there's something in 7/8 that doesn't work in Win10, but nobody has determined the nature/scope of it as for your app, it often takes 10 to 20 hours to analyze and assess the workings of an unknown app, and recommend a path forward there's never just one problem with a 20 year old app :-)
