> It's over six months since it was revealed that Corel still did not support Paradox under Vista in WPX4...have they fixed this yet? to be honest, it's doubtful that Corel will ever touch Paradox again.. all the people that were associated with it have been gone since 2002..

I didn't understand your "try to get full locks before you start" suggestion. Wouldn't that lead to roughly the same issues? A full lock prevents other sessions from reading and writing data (and restructuring to be complete). totally different philosophy.. we've both discussed here the pros and cons of the SetBatch logic, which grabs exclusive control while others are in the app.. I prefer the "standard" way of attempting exclusive control.. attempt to get that control *before* beginning the process, so that conflicting access by other users isn't even possible.. the SetBatch process can be a good thing, or it can be a bad thing, depending on knowledge level and implementation.. it is a concept that should only be considered by extremely advanced developers, in very limited situations..

Speed Up TCursors with setBatchOn()
You can speed up a TCursor in by using update(), setBatchOn(), or copyToArray(). If you use setBatchOn(), make sure to follow it with setBatchOff() every time you use it.

the general community recommendation about the SetBatch process has always been to *NOT* use it, because it only serves a purpose by interfering with the other users in your app.. when others are in your tables, the SetBatch is like putting a full lock on everything, on-the-fly, while others are in there working.. they will usually think the app froze on them, even if your app clearly lets them know it didn't, and they'll issue the three-fingered salute (Ctrl-Alt-Del).. enough instances of that, and you'll end up with damaged files, guaranteed.. if you need exclusive access to shared tables while others might be on-line, try to get the full locks berfore you start, to avoid conflicts, or schedule the process for off-hours and/or with a timer loop (to try for the full lock til you get it)..

FYI to the lurkers.. it's a silly question, because the CPU test was intended to determine if a 386/486 class machine was fully compatible with normal memory management standards.. most were, of course, and all machines since then have been, too..

Rajendraps.. Mike wasn't referring to a 'compatible' version of Paradox DOS.. he meant that you should use the Windows Compatibility Mode feature when using Paradox DOS with Vista.. I have not used Vista myself, but other Paradox folk that I know have used Vista, have reported that 4.0 and 4.5 DOS run fine with Vista without having to use the Compatibility Mode feature.. your mileage may vary, but I'd really like to hear from you if you have any Vista issues other than the fact that "full screen" isn't available..

Perhaps it's a good source but I haven't been able to verify it exists! can't verify that the seller exists, or that stand-alone Paradox exists?.. the European members of the Paradox community forum have confirmed that Corel Europe offers stand-alone Paradox, many times.. but all that really means is that you avoid a handful of Corel-default folders during installation..

Paradox 14 Is Paradox 11 SP2
Does Paradox X4 have any new features over X3?

As for the boot-leg copy on eBay AFAIK, that guy is in Germany, and is selling legal copies of Paradox.. in Europe, Corel does sell stand-alone copies of 10 and 11.. however, I have never purchased a copy from his, so I can't vouch for him..

the part that I always loved was Borland stating that a table could have "up to two billion records per file".. sure, if each record is just an unkeyed A1 field.. really useful, huh? (g)

Paradox 10 table structure?
I was just reviewing the Paradox Table Specs in your Paradox developer reference area. I found specs through Paradox 7 only, and I'm really interested in Paradox 10. Is it available?
