We are using the BDE Merge Module. This MM has a bug in it that will stop the whole installation when another program is still using the BDE. This happens even if the MM is not in the selected installation feature. The error "BDE is currently running, Install will be aborted" is displayed.

It is possible to edit generated msi witch would be used to install our product. And adding a dialog in witch the user can select if the BDE needs to be installed. And all the BDE actions in the sequence can be skipped if the user selects no.

Is there an easier way to do this?

The Merge Module used is the BDE_Ent.msm version 5.1.1 that came with Borland Enterprise version 7.
