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?

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

opportunistic locking was made to control access tables, which work differently than other "database desktops" like paradox, dbase, etc.. over time, it became obvious that it was problematic for access, too

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

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.

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

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
