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

Paradox 9 not working after Win 10 upgrade
I need help.  All of my Paradox 9 runtime users are getting the following error message after I upgraded 3 workstations to Windows 10.  Not all workstations have been upgraded but now they all receive the following error message when attempting to login to Paradox... An error was triggered in the 'qlocate' method on an object of TCursor type....TCursor not opened.  Our server is Windows 2012 Any help is appreciated.

F:\IDAPI\BDE\idapi.cfg that way, they're all pointing to one file.. if you change anything, you only change it once in THAT file, make sure it says the net file is in that same folder, too

Paradox 10 "invalid alias"
When I try to export a database, ( File | Export ) I am getting a cryptic "invalid alias" message in the message bar. No further info. I must have screwed up my settings somewhere and cannot find what alias it is referring to. My :priv: and :work: aliases are working fine.

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

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 :-)

Paradox 10 on Windows 7
I seems to have successfully loaded Paradox 10 (from WPO 2002). However, I am having problems in the data model. 1.) The table lables are not entirely readable 2.) Linking tables is doable, except that te screen gets "smudgy." If I drag the DM window down and back up, the image is clear. Loading the windows help program from MS did not work, but I haven't given this much energy and am not sure that I was doing it properly.

If you're using Paradox 9, make sure to upgrade to SP3 or SP4. There's a similar paradox in regards to Facebook. Start Paradox to make certain it's working correctly. You should try 70-537 dumps Questions and Answers to survive in Microsoft Certifications.

definitely, and alternative approach could explain the root cause.. in the old days, it was "is it the speaker, or the speaker wire?".. still true :-) I use an INI file to control a couple of things that even the runtime users can mess with, so they come back in clean, the next time

Multiple users edit same form concurrently in P11?
Hello All, I am very new to Paradox and have a question from an IT support side, rather than the user side. Our business office purchased licenses and installations for Paradox 11 due to a form issue in the previous version of Paradox they were using. This office claims that in their old version of Paradox they could have 2 users edit the same form simultaneously, but then it "quit working." I installed Paradox 11 on a Windows 7 and Windows 10 desktop without issue during the installation. They can open their old forms and tables without issue, but get the error below when opening the same form. Is it possible to adjust a setting or modify the .NET file to allow for simultaenous form edits?

Paradox books by Dan Ehrmann or ??
I want to learn how to expand my basic knowledge of writing queries in Paradox. My company's application operates on Paradox and I want to learn how to really manipulate the data available. I've been told that two books by Dan Ehrmann are good, but out of print. "Paradox Queries--The Basics" and "Paradox Queries--A Developer's Reference". If anyone has a lead on either of these I'd appreciate knowing., , Bob

comparison between Pardox and Access
I've been using Paradox from V4.0 through V9, relying on Mike Prestwood's books to get excellent results. , The pressure is on to convert or adopt to Access for future database/progamming, but I was always under the impression that Paradox was more stable, and overall a better product. If this is true, is there any chart or table available that compares the two, or at least some indication as to Paradox's strong points in relation to Access? This is a bit urgent, Thank you!
