Sorry it took so long to get back to you. Here is one customers settings. He
has Corel8. I seem to run into this often. Lately it's just a BDE exception
error when they attempt to run the program, but I have had the merge
configuration file error.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Borland\Database Engine

CONFIGFILE01 C:\Corel\Suite8\Shared\idapi\idapinew.cfg
DLLPATH C:\Corel\Suite8\Shared\idapi
RESOURCE 0009
SaveConfig WIN32

When I do a ISX project I am choosing Delphi4 installation. This works well
for installing BDE 5. But, when I encounter a customer with Corel WP Suite
or some other App using an older version of BDE, I'm getting the old merge
configuration file error. What am I missing?
What is the procedure for stripping the old BDE from the system?

Ivan

Hello Ivan, can you please find out where the BDE is installed? Possibly
look at the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Borland\Database Engine key, and
tell me what the options are in the right-hand side pane of the Registry
Editor (RegEdit).

Ok, check what the version of the BDE is that lives in the directory that
DLLPATH points to.

You can check that by selecting IDAPI32.DLL and then pressing Alt+Enter on
it. Look at the version tab.

The IDAPI32.DLL version is 3.00

Express should update the files in the directory when you install the BDE,
unless the files were marked as readonly.
