we're in the middle of a similar assessment.. no, it's not 32/64, best I can tell, it's restrictions on older, less-secure platforms no, Corel isn't gonna touch paradox bear in mind that the paradox community is very small now.. we don't get messes of folks testing the same issues, at the same time, any more Windows does has it's own set of API calls to manually run Outlook

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

trouble using SendDLG() on 2016 RDS svr W/ Outlook
I am starting up a new 2016 RDS server to replace a 2008 R2 Terminal server running a Paradox 11 App. I am having trouble using the M.SendDLG() command, which runs fine on The 2008R2 server. I get a windows error about the default email client and to open Outlook and set it as default I have opened outlook and set it as default I have also set it in control panel default programs and through settings default programs Both servers are running Outlook, the 2016 server where the problem is occuring is running Outlook 2019. There is also a Paradox errormessage that simply says "Main".  I think thats the errorShow for the M.SendDLG() Anyone else run into this?

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!

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.

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!

Mouse WHEEL Movement
In PDOX 8,  the mouse wheel had no impact on the paradox environment,  It just didn't work. Now in PDOX 11,  the mouse wheel is allowing users to scroll off of the record they should be Adding/Editing.  The user is then focused on a blank screen. Is there a way to trap that event?  I dont see any clues in the help doicument when it comes to scrolling mouse wheels. Currently I use the KeyPhysical event to prevent users from using the arrow keys to move from record to record,  but does not prevent the MOUSE action

Does Paradox have macro substitution?
I need to use the contents of a parameter to pull a field's contents. Visual FoxPro uses the & character for that sort of thing. Is there a Paradox equivalent? Edit: Fount it - it's called dereferencing, eg  sField = "Name"   ;Assign a field name to the variable., view(tcCustomer.(sField));Dereference the variable using parentheses. from:  https://www.prestwoodboards.com/ASPSuite/KB/Document_View.asp?QID=101169
